I was a little hesitant at first when I heard that Olivia Munn was going to play Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse. I wasn’t sure that she was the right choice. Not Ben Affleck as Batman worried, but there was some concern. (Yes, I own a full-blown comic book movie nerd card, I know.)

But now that I have seen some of her training on Instagram, complete with a little martial arts training (at one point alonside her lame boyfriend…pfft) and now these two wire training videos, I am starting to see how Olivia Munn might actually turn out to be a pretty good Psylocke.

Most of reservations came from the fact that I still think of her as the nerd queen on Attack of the Show, the place where she first became famous to nerds everywhere, but I have to admit after watching her lately, she’s definitely got some skills. It also doesn’t hurt that the way she described using tons of lube to put on her costume also has my curiosity more than a little bit piqued.
