To answer a question that has been plaguing the minds of comic book fans everywhere for, like, ever, Psylocke (Olivia Munn) faced off against Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) in a sword fight showdown. Munn displayed her incredible skill with a sword, showing off some stunning moves while Reynolds… well, Reynolds was very Deadpool. You can probably guess what I mean by that.

It makes sense that these two would know each other and be totally down to make some great joke promos for their respective movies. And honestly, I’m pretty stoked to catch Munn’s portrayal of Psylocke, especially given all the incredible training videos she’s been putting up. Oh, and Reynolds as Deadpool just seems… just seems right. The man embodies Deadpool in so many ways.

Will you be catching Deadpool when it comes out February 12th, or X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27th? Or both?! Probably both. I know how you roll.
