Per Superhero Hype, Bryan Singer announced the newest member to the 2016 film will be The Newsroom‘s Olivia Munn as Elizabeth Braddock, aka Psylocke. The comic book history of Braddock, who has telepathic powers, took over the body and abilities of a Japanese ninja warrior, thus becoming Psylocke. While her role in the film is unavailable at this time, it begs the question as to how much we’ll actually see of the character in the film, especially one that is lesser known compared to her counterparts.
The film will be lead by returning cast in James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Nicholas Hoult as they battle Oscar Isaac’s titular villain.
Be sure to check back as more updates are available before the film is released in May 2016.
