Olivia Munn, of The Newsroom and G4 TV fame, was recently cast Psylocke in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. While the director has been tweeting teases from pre-production, we’ve thus fare had no announcements regarding her (or the character’s) look or costume in the film. Until, possibly, now.
What am I looking at here?
Presumably, a snap shot of Ms. Munn trying on some latex. If you squint your eyes, you’ll notice her gloves are of a similar style and color worn by the comics version of Psylocke.
Why is she trying on Psylocke-esque latex?
A few reasons are possible. First, she’s just trying to generate hype for herself by putting some appropriately colored latex. It is an actor’s job to help generate interest in their brand, after all. Second, and a little less cynical, is that she’s attending an early costume fitting. Perhaps Bryan Singer will tweet out some more artwork and behind the scenes photos with her soon. It’s only a matter of time.
Can you tell me more about Psylocke?
Indeed we can. Check out our character breakdown for her here.
