Olivia Munn seems very excited to be playing ‘Psylocke’ in the latest X-Men film and she’s posted an incredible picture of herself on set.
The actress shared the awesome picture of her character on Instagram giving us a great glimpse of what’s going on behind the scenes.
Munn is playing ‘Psylocke’, a powerful mutant who possesses incredible telepathic abilities but prefers to use her ninja training to kick bad guy butt.
Describing her character, Munn said:
She’s a telekinetic telepath who chooses to kill with a sword because she wants to do it up close and intimate because killing from afar just seems too easy and no fun.

It seems like the training paid off!
