X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn attended last night’s Academy Awards ceremony. While walking the red carpet, MTV News asked Munn about her character from the film, Psylocke, and whether the success of the Deapdool movie could be replicated with a similarly R-rated X-Men movie.
“I think what happened with Deadpool is a combination of Ryan being so amazing, and the writer, and the director, and everybody,” Munn said. “For anything to be successful it has to be the perfect storm, so you hope you’re the perfect storm all the time, right?”
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
