Olivia Munn Wants Psylocke to Team Up with Deadpool in X-Force
Olivia Munn's Psylocke was one of the most exciting parts of X-Men: Apocalypse's marketing, but didn't feature nearly as prominently as we were hoping. But hopefully, there will be another opportunity to see the villainous mutant in action, since Munn says she's on board for an X-Force movie alongside Ryan Reynolds.

When asked by USA Today about the possibility of Psylocke appearing in a future X-Force movie, the actress said:

Opening quote
"That would be a really cool thing to do," she said when asked by USA Today. "What [Ryan Reynolds] did with Deadpool was genius and I'm so excited for him. It would definitely be cool to see Deadpool and some of the other X-Men characters gather for an X-Force movie. I think that's what the whole world is coming to – everybody unites together, right? It's never just one character anymore. We all just become one movie."
Closing quote
Although this doesn't confirm anything either way, it's very likely we'll get to see an X-Force movie in the near future. Cable, who is the head and face of X-Force, has been confirmed for the Deadpool sequel, and Ryan Reynolds recently said he was "working on" an X-Force sequel, which Simon Kinberg seemed to confirm when he said X-Force might be R-rated. And if there is an X-Force movie in the works, it's difficult to imagine that Munn won't be in it, since Psylocke is one of the most prominent members of the comics team. 

Although the studio has been mum about an X-Force sequel, we might be seeing it sooner rather than later. They recently set two untitled Marvel movies scheduled for 2017 and 2018, which are thought to be in addition to the New Mutants movie. And now that Gambit has been taken off the schedule entirely, one of those is likely the Deadpool sequel, and the other could easily be an X-Force movie. We'll have to wait and see, but regardless, it looks like this X-Force movie will have a killer cast.
