Yeah, they should have no problem doing that. They did that with Emma in FC.

She didn't even have the same powers. She walked out of a wall... or something I prefer Bingbing to be Psylocke than Blink.

I didn't mind the coloring of her hair, just the style/cut/look was horrid.

Best case scenario to use her in future films, theres quite a few small roles/cameo type roles, from X3 and Wolverine they could role with with that.

I haven't really read anything w/ Psylocke for years......she just always happened to be in books I didn't collect. But I remember way back when, a user said she had a camouflage type ability in the books---so technically in a way, she did use an ability she does have---I just remember on here I got a scolding from a user when I said she used a power she didn't have. Again its been years since I collected anything---and the last book(s) I collected were X-Force/X-Statix and Muties.

I read somewhere that walking through walls was part of her abilities. After-all, she's also a ninja/master martial artist. She is fierce!

Walking through walls was part of her ability after being saved after she was Injured by Sabretooth.That was homage to comics.It was just In a crappy film.

I thought that Fan BingBing was a lot younger. Proof once again that Asians don't crack.

She's announced as playing Blink, but since she's Asian people still insist she's playing Psylocke.

Hilarious.

I think people just want her to be Psylocke instead. Like me.

Blink would be more fun with her powers. She'd also be visually more interesting to look at.

It was moving through shadows, not walls. And it was temporary as she only used it through her connection to the Crimson Dawn, which she no longer has.

So I guess with Fan Bingbing playing her, Blink will be Chinese. I wonder if they will change her civilian name to something else "Clarice Ferguson" is not very Chinese sounding, unless she is half Chinese in the movie and her father wasn't Chinese. Maybe they will just refer to her as Blink and not mention her civilian name.

Clarice can still be a name for a Chinese girl.

Are you sure? Clarice is a name of Latin and Greek origin, not Chinese origin. I know some Asian Americans and recent Asian immigrants take "wasp given names" to fit in better, but Clarice is not a Chinese given name and Ferguson is certainly not a Chinese family name, considering it has a Gaelic origin.

Oh Psylocke. Another example of missed opportunities. She was even in the same movie as Angel and not one attempt was made to give them any connection to each other. I know it's impossible to incorporate all connections and relationships, but they didn't even try in the OT. Why have characters like Psylocke and Angel if they're stripped of everything that makes them who they are?

Has Bingbing been officially, for sure, cast as Blink?

I have Chinese friends in real life that doesn't have a name that originated from China. So its not an issue.

Well they could always bring them back for X-Men 5.

Same with Kayla's sister in Origins. As far as I'm concerned both were just random mutants.

Yes. It's perfectly legal for a girl of Asian ancestry to be named Clarice.

Also it's not certain the character is even Asian. She's a mutant. She doesn't have to resemble her parents.
