We've been keeping a lose eye on the casting of X-Men: Apocalypse for some time now.

However, this one particular bit of casting news has us quite excited. Olivia Munn, whom you'll know from The Newsroom, New Girl and Magic Mike, has joined the cast as Psylocke.

Who's Psylocke, you might ask? If you ever played Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, you'll know that she was one of the best characters in it.

Singer's casting for Apocalypse has been pretty spot-on so far. Oscar Isaac is a perfect fit for En Sabah Nur / Apocalypse and Sophie Turner would make an ideal Jean Grey. She's even got Famke Janssen's perfect jawline too, so that's a help.

Olivia Munn, we're guessing, will bring her own sensibilities to the character of Psylocke. The only thing is the character's supposed to be English. We're hoping that they'll jettison that aspect because, let's face it, trying to nail an English accent can be difficult.

In any case, we're excited to see the roster for X-Men: Apocalypse be filled out.

Irish release date is set for May 19th, 2016.
