Olivia Munn, set play Psylocke in the forthcoming film “X-Men: Apocalypse,” recently revealed during an appearance on “Conan” her costume will look similar to what the character wore in the comic-book. She also added that unlike the comic book depiction, less emphasis has been laid on the top and the bottom.
Munn’s costume is made of latex and she uses lubrication to get into it along with help from two women. “They lube me down and I step into this latex. We did a whole latex fitting,” she said.
In the comics, Psylocke wears a blue bodysuit and a red band at the waist. She also wears matching boots and bands on her thighs and hands. Munn hearlier Instagrammed about fitting in her costume. In the photo, she can be seen wearing a blue latex costume and a matching hand glove. She captioned the photo, “if the latex fits.”
Munn is also perfecting her sword skills for the role and reportedly is excited to play a superhero on silver screen. For her to play Psylocke in Bryan Singer’s film is a like a dream. “It’s one of the coolest things. It really doesn’t feel real. It’s a very cliché thing to say, but it’s just a really surreal thing when you’re on set. … I try not to mess up anything or touch anything, don’t break anything because they’re going to ask you to leave. It’s this feeling of very surreal and temporary in a way, if that makes sense,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
“X-Men: Apocalypse” is being shot in Montreal. Singer is directing from the screenplay by Simon Kinberg. The rest of the cast includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Oscar Isaac, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Lucas Till, Ben Hardy and Lana Condor. The film is to open May 27.
