Apocalypse is coming, and from the look of things he will pose the greatest challenge ever faced by Charles Xavier’s misunderstood team of super powered mutants. The marketing campaign has thus far provided good glimpses at what Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Archangel), and Magneto will be capable of in the coming X-Men: Apocalypse, but we’ve seen very little of the fourth horseman: Psylocke. Actress Olivia Munn has released a new photo of herself as the character showcasing her awesome costume Check it out below:
The photo comes to us courtesy of Munn and her Instagram account. As one can see above, the photo shows the actress in a somewhat revealing Psylocke outfit, complete with metallic purple sheen and tight leggings. While the outfit itself doesn’t exactly seem practical, it more than confirms Munn’s prior statements that indicated she needs two women and lube just to squeeze into the damn thing.
Behind Munn we can see a fairly war torn landscape of ruins and destroyed vehicles. This would lead us to indicate that whatever scene she was filming when this photo was taken will likely come towards the end of the film, when the "war" gets into full swing. Psylocke herself is a somewhat obscure character for those unfamiliar with the greater X-Men lore. Munn describes her as a telekinetic telepath who opts to use a sword in combat because a more "up close" and "intimate" killing style. So while it looks as though there’s no hint of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the coming X-Men adventure, fans will get just about all the slashing and stabbing they could ever hope for with Munn’s character.
While Munn’s post does quite a bit to inform us about the nature of Psylocke’s powers and mentality during the film, we still have yet to really get a glimpse of her in action. While the other Horsemen get their moment to shine during the recently released trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, the only real view we get of Psylocke is a close-up of her in civilian clothes – presumably the moment she meets Apocalypse and has her powers enhanced. Of course, you’re more than welcome to check out the trailer below and see if there’s something we missed.
For now, it looks to be only a matter of time until we get to see Olivia Munn show off Psylocke in her full villainous glory. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016.
