As usual, Bryan Singer took to social media to alert fans of X-Men: Apocalypse's newest cast member. "Excited to welcome Olivia Munn as Betsy Braddock," he wrote on Instagram. Betsy Braddock is Psylocke, a mutant known for her telekinetic edge as well as her immunity to others' telepathy. It seems like the casting news for this movie is never-ending, as Munn joins (recently announced) Lana Condor, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Tye Sheridan, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The film is supposed to start production in the spring, for a release next May, which means there's probably time for a couple more announcements. Keep your eyes peeled, but scope out this informative clip about Psylocke, who is especially badass, in the meantime.
