Olivia Munn Finally Gets to Play a Superhero: Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse


The former Attack of the Show and Daily Show correspondent made a name for herself in part by frequently appearing in cosplay – including the White Queen outfit above – and was one of the early flashpoints in the “fake geek girl” non-debate that I hope we’ve mostly moved past nowadays. Today, Olivia Munn gets to tell the world she’ll be playing a comic character onscreen. I liked her in Magic Mike, but I have no idea how that translates to Psylocke.

Maybe – just maybe – she can hold Bryan Singer’s attention long enough to tell him that his costumes need work.
