    The new Wizard Movie speacial magazine had an interview with Mei/Psylocke...here is a paraphrased summary....

    - She originally auditioned for the part of Callisto, but the role went to Dani Ramirez.
    - Mei received a callback when they were seeking someone with martial arts experience
    - * Mei described Psylocke as “strong arm” helping Magneto.
    - *Mei said the movie is an introduction for the character. She said Psylocke will turn into shadows, merge with walls and use her psi-blades.
    - Mei is familiar with the comic book character, and she did additional reading/research
    - Due to time constraints, they could not die all of her hair purple.
    - They tried the thong/ tights look, but it didn’t look right

    ** Direct quote: - “I am a bad girl. I’m basically a strong-arm helping [Magento and the Brotherhood of Mutants] do different things. It’s an introduction to my character. I turn into shadows and go through walls; and I also have psi-blades.”

    the thong didn't look right huh? well maybe cuz she has no BUTT!!! I think out of all the characters they butchered Psylocke. but i have to wait and see how she turns out in the movie. i think she's one of the hottest characters in the comics. I could see Angelina Jolie playing her but i guess they went with the more asian look.

    Yes, when she gained her Crimson Dawn powers in the late-90s (when she was spoting the red tat over her eye)

    I would love to see the shadow powers, but could she have meant comic psylocke and not movie psylocke when she said that?

    I love that she did additional research! Go Mei!

    Not dying her hair because of time constraits? Boo...I hope it looks right on film.
