Olivia Munn Practices Psylocke’s Sword-Swinging Moves, On Wires

Looks like Olivia Munn will be doing some sweet mid-air somersaults as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, as evidenced by this video of her training on wires to perform a little aerial swordplay. Of course, Psylocke wouldn’t need the wires, but the power of movie magic will help with that. This isn’t the first cool training video we’ve seen emerge from Munn’s Psylocke training regimen; looks like we’ll have a lot of bad-ass moments to look forward to in Apocalypse.

Also, let’s take a moment to enjoy these photos of Olivia Munn using her katanas to goof around with some girls who I believe are the children of one of the visual effects producers on the film:
