Now, when the news broke a few days back that Olivia Munn would be taking on the role of Psylocke in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, not everyone was convinced. For every fan happy to see the charismatic The Newsroom star join the X-Men universe, there seemed to be at least two others who had some fairly deep-rooted objections to her casting.

Which, intriguingly, is paired with a very comic book faithful take on Ben Hardy's Angel...

(Or, rather, Archangel)

...which itself raises an interesting question: With Munn being a whole ten years older than Hardy, are we ever likely to see their character's share a version of their comic book romance on the big screen?

The chances may well have just gone way, way down...

Either way though:

What do you think?
