Olivia Munn challenges Ryan Reynolds to an 'X-Men' sword fight
UPI News Service, 02/08/2016
Psylocke took on Deadpool in a new Instagram video that featured Olivia Munn challenging Ryan Reynolds to a sword fight.
The comedic clip features the two fellow X-Men mutants squaring off ahead of the release of their films, "Deadpool" on Feb. 12 and "X-Men: Apocalypse" on May 27.
Munn, who is set to portray the blade-wielding Psylocke in "Apocalypse," recently stated that her character could defeat Wolverine in a fight, and has now decided to test her skills against Deadpool (Reynolds).
"#Psylocke v. #Deadpool #xmen #apocalypse. Right hand left hand sword play," Munn captioned the video which featured the 35-year-old showing off her impressive ambidextrous sword skills.
In true Deadpool fashion, Reynolds responded back by using a sword made out of balloon to bop Munn gently on the head.
During Super Bowl 50, Fox and Marvel Studios aired a new clip of "X-Men: Apocalypse" that featured Psylocke cutting her way into battle.
