We’re pretty darn excited about Olivia Munn being cast as Betsy Braddock in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie from Bryan Singer.

We’re so excited we don’t care this first tease of a latex Psylocke costume is just a glimpse:

Theoretically, this is just the color of latex the costume designer had laying around, and that the finished outfit won’t be blue or the signature purple. (Although in the 90’s Jim Lee run she WAS in blue). But on the other hand, maybe this means Psylocke will be on the opposite side of the X emblem, and may end up as one of the famed Horsemen of Apocalypse (Big Blue). Clearly this Instagram image doesn’t give us nearly enough information, except that Munn is in tiptop shape.

And before you folks get all up in arms about her not being right for the role, need I remind you Olivia is a lifelong geek who has been cosplaying (that’s dressing up in costume and portraying the character) for several years, including but not limited to ChunLi from Street Fighter, Princess Leia from Star Wars, Wonder Woman, and Sailor Moon:
