Olivia Munn (Ride Along 2, Newsroom) participated in a special question-and-answer session on Twitter today and during it she fielded a good number of questions related to her role in 20th Century Fox's upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse.
One fan asked Munn who she thought would win in a fight between Psylocke and Wolverine. "When I was training for Psylocke, one of the things we worked on was using two blades possibly and making that an option for her in a fight scene," she offered. "So when I have my psionic blades I actually fight a lot like Wolverine. He's got his claws that come out, (starts swinging her arms around) so there's a lot fighting like that because the psionic blades are part of my arms. So we would have a similar fighting style, so it would be a pretty even match I think, but: Psylocke."
She also discussed all the training she went through to prepare for an extensive action scene and why she chose not to use an English accent for Psylocke.
