Production wrapped last month on X-Men: Apocalypse, which begins the lengthy post-production process under the direction of Bryan Singer. While it may be quite some time before we see the first trailer, new cast member Olivia Munn took to her Instagram page to show off one last video of her training, with the actress showing off her impressive moves with a samurai sword. The actress said this was, "One last freestyle session for the road," meaning this may be the last of her training videos we see before the first trailer arrives.
Of course, this isn't the first time Olivia Munn has showed us her fighting skills. The actress has sent out numerous Instagram videos as production was under way in Montreal. Hopefully we get to see how the actress' sword fighting skills translate to the screen in the first trailer, but we're not sure when that will debut yet, and we don't know what footage the filmmakers plan on displaying. Still, regardless if she's in the trailer or not, Olivia Munn's character Psylocke will have an integral role in this superhero movie.
Olivia Munn stars as Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock in X-Men: Apocalypse, a mutant with vast telepathic and telekinetic powers that can be focused into deadly weapons. She is a stealthy martial artist, a former fashion model and longtime X-Man. In this latest sequel, Psylocke is first discovered working for Caliban, a mutant broker hiding behind the Iron Curtain. Villain Apocalypse seeks her out, turning her into one of the Four Horsemen. It isn't known if she will be rescued by the X-Men and later trained by Xavier to become a superhero, or if Olivia Munn is signed on for future franchise movies.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the year 1983, 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The story centers on the villainous Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who is assembling his Four Horsemen. Xavier (James McAvoy) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) discover Apocalypse's plans to ruin the world, and put together a team of new mutants such as Jubilee (Lana Condor), Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) to fight the ancient bad guy.
Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Lucas Till (Havok), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert) are also returning to reprise their roles from X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. With X-Men: Apocalypse wrapped, it isn't known when we will get the first trailer. Some speculate it will arrive on September 18, when Fox debuts The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials in theaters nationwide, but that hasn't been confirmed. While we wait for news on the trailer, check out Olivia Munn's latest training video.
