Olivia Munn’s Hollywood fairytale isn’t ending anytime soon. The PC North Panther turned fanboy crush turned cosplay star turned legitimate Hollywood actress has been cast in cast in “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

The Oklahoman’s resident comic nerd, Matthew Price, has all the details

Oklahoma native and geek favorite Olivia Munn has been cast as the X-Men’s Psylocke in the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalpyse,” according to an Instagram post from director Bryan Singer…

The big-budget X-Men film is set for a May 27, 2016 release.

Munn, who graduated from Putnam City North High School and studied journalism at the University of Oklahoma, talked to LOOK@OKC in 2010 about taking advantage of opportunities:

“You know what it is? It’s just being so appreciative. This business can be so arbitrary and success is so hard to attain and can be fleeting,” Munn said. “When you’re out here and you see how hard it is to get these opportunities, when they come around you just want to put all the effort to make sure you can do it all and not say no to anything.”

Munn rose to fame on the geek-friendly “Attack of the Show” and previously appeared in a small role in “Iron Man 2.” She recently starred in HBO’s “The Newsroom.”

The X-Men films are based on the comics from Marvel.

I’m not really into comic book movies, but I guess that’s cool. What’s not cool is this photo NewsOK.com used to accompany the write-up…

Yikes! Just because she’s playing a mutant doesn’t mean you have to make her look like one! WTF, could they have chosen a more unflattering photo? This is Olivia Munn. I know she’s kind of like Gwen, Jerry’s sometimes hot, sometimes not, two-faced girlfriend from the amazing Festivus episode, but there are plenty of hot photos of Olivia to be found on the Internet.

For example…

See, isn’t that better? I wonder what the deal was with that photo? I bet Matthew Price is upset that Olivia turned down the lead role in the Posthuman Project or whatever, and this was his passive aggressive way of getting back at her. I don’t know why he’s so upset. Alexandra Harris seems pretty solid.
