Olivia Munn Is Psylocke & Ben Hardy Is Angel In ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Olivia Munn Is Psylocke & Ben Hardy Is Angel In 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

Three big superhero movies start shooting this spring: “X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and “Suicide Squad.” That means lots of details will be forthcoming for these movies, so let’s dip into the world of mutants shall we?

Bryan Singer has been busy making confirmations and announcements about “Apocalypse.” Firstly, over at Empire, he revealed that Angel will be played by “EastEnders” star Ben Hardy. “Ben Hardy is Angel  I shall confirm it for you! But he’s not a very nice Angel! And that’s all I’ll say…,” the director teased, also dropping some concept art, which you can check out below.

Meanwhile, over on Instagram, he revealed that Olivia Munn (“The Newsroom,” “Magic Mike“) will take the part of Betsy Braddock, AKA Psylocke. The last time we saw the character was in “X-Men 3: The Last Stand,” played by Mei Melançon, so we’ll see what the Singer has up his sleeve for his take.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” arrives on May 27, 2016.
