FOX Casting X-Men's Psylocke

Jeff Sneider announced ' a little scoop' and said Fox are casting for Psylocke in Apocalypse at 9:14

Omega Underground: Jeff Sneider from The Wrap has revealed on Meet The Movie Press that Fox and Bryan Singer are currently casting for the role of Psylocke in X-Men Apocalypse, but doesn’t mention names.

It’s another fan-favorite character not unlike Jubilee and Gambit that Fox is finally giving us, like Jubilee was given a bit of screentime as a villain X-Men The Last Stand, but was never really given a true adaptation. There’s some hope she could end-up more heroic with this version of the character.

There are plenty of ways Bryan Singer and Fox could go with casting Psylocke. We know that Moira MacTaggert is coming back and Elizabeth Braddock started in the Marvel comics as a British spy, and could be friendly with her C.I.A. counterpart maybe being an MI6 agent. Her mind wasn’t transferred into her iconic Japanese body and given awesome ninja training until later-on in the X-Men comics.

They could aim to hire either an English or Asian actress for the role. Introducing her would make a lot of sense with an X-Force script from Jeff Wadlow is likely being one of the next X-Men projects in the pipeline, Psylocke being the modern team leader of the group makes sense to include her in that film.

#tbt: Uncanny X-Men #456


#tbt: Uncanny X-Men Annual #456 – Inside the jet, Betsy sits cuffed into one of the seats. Although she is a prisoner, she understands the X-Men’s caution about her recent return from the dead. She understands that they cannot afford to take chances. Actually, she rather enjoys sitting in the plane, taking in the smell and feel of the Blackbird and the standard black and yellow uniform she is wearing. It’s all home to her. She rests and her mind wanders inward. (the Astral Plane) Betsy cries as she sees her mind come up before her like a grand Asian fortress crystalline and glowing. This does not surprise her. Clothed in a flowing silk robe (though she prefers armor), Betsy looks at her reflection in a fortress wall. She watches as the image changes from a Caucasian Betsy to an Asian Betsy. She is confused by the former face, but turns away when she sees her Asian reflection. She protests to herself that she knows who she is…but what has she become? She knows that something is not right. St. William’s Tower, a very British structure, rises suddenly in the midst of her Asian fortress. This was where she played as a child. Why has this part of her mind been gone for so long? Written by Chris Claremont and art by Alan Davis. Read full summary here.

X-Men #25 Spoilers

Spoilers: Monet keeps fighting monster-like creatures within the cave, when Jubilee contacts her and tells about Beast's findings concerning the Kree. Monet orders Jubilee to head to New Attilan and seek Medusa for explanations. Monet tries to get back to Rachel and Psylocke but ends up slipping; rocks falling all over her. M daydreams of her family; her mother telling her words of strenght and encouragement. In New Attilan, Medusa tells Jubilee that the Kree haven't run any experiments in Earth in thousands of years. Monet manages to contact Rachel telepathically. Rachel tells her she needs to tap into both M and Psylocke's TK abilities to lift heavy stuff. While the three of them are connected, they realize the place has a memory: in 1944, a sort of detonation carried out by humans made that particular place as unstable as it is.
