Now, with Fox's Deadpool now only a handful of days away from wide release (and the warm and fuzzy fan-happiness that seems set to bring), it's not all that surprising that Ryan Reynolds is pretty much everywhere. He is, after all, the man behind the Merc with a Mouth, and therefore about as fundamental a part of the movie's promotional machine as it's possible to get. Olivia Munn, on the other hand, isn't set to appear in the X-Men movie universe until this summer's X-Men: Apocalypse, in which she'll be playing Psylocke — which makes it all the more intriguing that...
Ryan Reynolds And Olivia Munn Just Turned Up Together On Instagram
Specifically, the pair — having reportedly been spotted alongside one another a number of times recently — appeared alongside one another in that there Instagram post, courtesy of Munn herself.
Which, in and of itself, is pretty darned awesome and all — who doesn't want to watch Deadpool and Psylocke have a sword fight? But as it happens, there might just be more to that there post than an adorably whimsical sword fight. In fact...
That Post Might Just Be Teasing Something Huge
Specifically, since it seems to suggest that the pair have filmed some sort of sequence together in the recent past, it might just be hinting at one of these three things:
1. A Psylocke-starring post-credits sequence attached to 'Deadpool.'
2. A Deadpool cameo in 'X-Men: Apocalypse.'
3. That X-Force Movie We've All Been Hoping For.
The first two would, of course, make a whole lot of sense — Fox connecting Deadpool and the rest of the X-Men universe seems likely to be something we'll see (in some form or another) by the end of the summer, so Psylocke and Deadpool teaming up is entirely plausible.
The third, though, is the real kicker — y'see, if Psylocke and Deadpool really do get to share an on-screen moment, it'll be hard not to see it as a tease of the long-awaited X-Force movie, seeing as the duo were both key parts of one particular generation of the team (pictured above).
Could we finally be set to see the X-Universe's most brutal team hit the big screen — or are Reynolds and Munn just buds with a fondness for PR-friendly goofing around? Only time (and perhaps this week's release of Deadpool) will tell...
