X-Men: Apocalypse: Olivia Munn's Psylocke fight scene took two weeks to shoot
During a Twitter Q&A from the social media company’s headquarters, the actress dished on her favorite scene from the film. “The fight scene was a long time preparing and it took me about, I think, two weeks to shoot the entire fight scene,” she said in a video response.
In a separate video, she explained, “I worked for many months training and I did, like, 6-7 hours a day of sword and taekwondo training, and stunt training and wire training.” In months past, Munn posted behind-the-scenes looks on social media of the grueling regime.
“I did get hurt training. Most of it was self-inflicted,” she continued. “I have a picture of my leg on my right side just completely bruised literally from my ankle all the way up my thigh, and that was just when I was at home trying to learn sword by myself, and this is before I asked for maybe a not-so-sharp blade to practice with.”

Rounding out the Q&A with talk of her mastery of Psylocke’s background and the X-Men comics, Munn shared a new still from Apocalypse of Psylocke sprinting into battle.
Munn teased her character has a similar fighting style to Wolverine as she often fights with weapons in both hands. If these characters were ever to face each other on the field, the actress seemed adamant about Psylocke’s victory.
We’ll get to see Munn in action when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
