I don't know what I'm more surprised by... The character being included or the actress that's playing her.

Well, we knew about Psylocke from Jeff Sneider a few weeks ago. My surprise is definitely Munn. I assumed it would be another no name actress in a thankless role...

She's alright, I've only seen her on The Newsroom though.

I wonder if these means the role is being setup for more appearances.

They are definitely setting up for sequels with all these new additions. Plenty of females in the cast too

Psylocke was my crush in the 90's X-Men comics.

As for Olivia playing her,...ehh....what can I say, not even remotely who I would have expected but under Bryan Singer's direction it can't get that bad after all she did an ok job convincing the fans that Rebecca Romain could play Mystique.

I would have NEVER guessed Munn in the role, but I'm excited to see her take on Betsy!

I just know the fans will nitpick over this but will Olivia employ a British accent for Psylocke? I seriously don't care for it especially if it sounds phoney.

Glad to have Psylocke on board and having more female X-Men is great!
Also she is the second actress who had a small role in an Iron Man movie and then took on a well-known character in an X-Men movie instead.

I would be excited if I didn't feel this is probably a worthless role.

Sexy assassin Ninja? I'm in.

I wouldn't mind a role for her like Mystique had in X-Men 1 and X-Men 2.

Nice! Haven't seen her in a lot, but I think she's a good fit for the role.

Luckily, Olivia Munn is famous-ish enough that its probably a decent sized part.

Really excited that we have another female part, and equally excited that its someone a little older. Feel like we have enough student-aged characters at this point.
