Olivia Munn’s Psylocke escaped during the climactic battle between the X-Men and Apocalypse at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse and it’s been unclear if Munn would be back as the psionic, telepathic and telekinetic mutant for future installments of director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men films.
However, in a Snapchat post earlier today Munn revealed that she is presently in Montreal which is where X-Men: Dark Phoenix just so happens to currently be filming.
In the post Munn plays with a filter that gives her pink-toned glasses and the writes “C’est bon, Koko!!” with the location tag of Montreal, Quebec.
While the photo is no confirmation that Munn is set to appear in the film some details about the upcoming movie are known.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be a direct sequel to X-Men Apocalypse and is set in the 1990s. The film’s inspiration comes from one of the most popular X-Men stories of all time, “The Dark Phoenix Saga,” which 20th Century Fox attempted to adapt in X-Men: The Last Stand, though it was not well-received.
The studio previously confirmed that Evan Peters would return as Quicksilver/Peter Maximoff in the film and that Canadian star Lamar Johnson would be joining the cast as well.
Fox attempted to adapt "The Dark Phoenix Saga" once previously, in X-Men: The Last Stand. The attempt was not well-received by fans.
