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.
