During the Super Bowl last night, 20th Century Fox released new trailers for two of its most highly-anticipated movies, this weekend's Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits theaters on May 27. We know that Deadpool is fully established within the X-Men movie universe, but it still remains to be seen how the Merc With the Mouth will be used in future movies. Over the weekend, X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn shared a new video through her Instagram page, featuring the actress showing off her Psylocke swordplay skills, along with a surprise guest, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.
We know that Deadpool held its press day in San Francisco over Super Bowl weekend, and it seems that Olivia Munn was also doing press for X-Men: Apocalypse there as well, according to several posts on her Twitter and Instagram pages. This explains why both stars were seen together in this video, but some have speculated that this could lead to a crossover of sorts. Some speculate that the Merc With the Mouth could show up in X-Men: Apocalypse, but there is another possibility to consider as well.
Over the weekend, we reported that Deadpool will have two post-credits scenes, one of which was shown during press screenings, while the other was saved for the theatrical release starting February 12. Screenwriter Rhett Reese and Deadpool comic book creator Rob Liefeld both confirmed the presence of this second mystery scene, but they wouldn't offer any details about what it will show. It's possible that Olivia Munn's Psylocke could show up in this second scene, but that hasn't been confirmed.
If both characters are featured in this scene, it could be the first hint that both characters will be featured in the X-Force movie that has been in development for quite some time. The project hasn't been given an official production start at this time, but it's worth noting that both Deadpool and Psylocke were members of the X-Force team in the Marvel Comics. Rob Liefeld has teased in the past that writer-director Jeff Wadlow's X-Force script does include Deadpool, but it isn't known for sure if Psylocke is included.
It's worth noting that 20th Century Fox is also developing The New Mutants, which may include Deadpool's Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), but it isn't known what other specific character may be included in this project.
