I haven’t written about X-Men: Apocalypse in a while and I seem to have missed a lot.  The big casting news that Angel,  Nightcrawler and Jubilee are officially in the movie and today another big bomb was dropped via Instagram

Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #XMEN

I don’t know how I feel about Olivia Munn taking over such a kick ass character like Psylocke. When it comes to Psylocke I think of the curvy person I saw in old X-Men comics or even as she was portrayed in Marvel Masterpieces

4150136973_0ac3698f85I’m guess I’m just being extremely picky, but for someone with this amount of sex appeal I would think that there would be a better fit.

When it comes to acting, I have no doubt that Olivia Munn will do fine. She’s been a part of a few shows and is currently on one of the most popular shows to date. I just don’t see her running around in anything that represents the costume I like. The past two movies they haven’t been truly faithful when it came to costumes, so I suppose that makes my argument invalid.

The fact of the matter is this. I’m a comic fan. I watch all the comic book based movies no matter what they are or what they’re wearing. I’m as supportive as possible and I won’t change for this movie. I’ll be there with the other fans watching and enjoying this movie, so it really doesn’t matter what she wears or what her accent is, I just hope it’s enjoyable.
