Bryan Singer’s nerd cred is rising all the time.

The director of the previous X-Men film, Days of Future Past has announced via instagram that nerd sweetheart Olivia Munn, famous for Attack of the Show and The Newsroom, has been cast as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse.

For those perhaps unfamiliar Psylocke is known for her mutant powers including psychic and telepathic immunity and the ability to generate a telekinetic katana from her hands. SWEET!

Along with Munn, X-Men: Apocalypse also stars James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Bingbing Fan, Lana Condor, and Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse.

Shaping up to be quite the movie! X-Men: Apocalypse begins in theaters May 27th, 2016.
