Olivia Munn Gets Psylocke Ready for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

When not deep throating hot dogs, Olivia Munn likes to share her other skills on Instagram. One of the most active cast members behind the scenes of the X-Men: Apocalypse production, aside from director Bryan Singer, Munn can be see training hard to ensure the mutant Psylocke is not to be taken lightly. The results are pretty badass, like this video showcasing her swordplay talents:

Learned some new tricks…

Her fiancé, Green Bay Packers’ quarterback, Aaron Rogers isn’t quite as skilled, but I’m sure he has mastered a different kind of sword to handle the actress if need and when need be. However, if Rogers ever falls out of line, Munn demonstrates that she’s more than capable if she is disarmed as well.

I’ve never seen The Newsroom, but I can say that Olivia Munn’s roles in film have never really impressed me. Regardless, seeing her behind the scenes shows how committed to this role she is and deserves a lot of kudos. It takes a lot of discipline and training to be able to perform the stunts she is required, and it’s awesome that she’s learning to do it herself rather than opt-in for a stunt double.

And for hardcore fans worried whether or not Psylocke will have her psi-blade, there should be nothing to fear. In a recent Instagram post by her sister, Sara Potts, Munn was recorded doing some wire stunts with a stand in psi-blade.
