Deadpool hits theaters this Friday, and a video released by X-Men: Apocalypse actress Olivia Munn shows off her impressive sword skills opposite Ryan Reynolds and his weaker talents. Does it hint at a X-Men spinoff?
Olivia Munn will be playing the mutant Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, and she’s clearly been through some sword training during the film’s production of her sword skills are of any indication. In the video below we see her showing off in front of Ryan Reynolds, who stars in the highly-anticipated Deadpool. Reynolds’ sword skills don’t seem as impressive:

While it might seem like another publicity stunt by Reynolds for his upcoming film, rumors suggest that the video hints at a spinoff titled X-Force, which would involve both Deadpool and Psylocke.
There’s reports of a second Deadpool after-credits scene, which will include Olivia Munn as Psylocke, who she’ll be playing in X-Men: Apocalypse. The reports suggest that this will lead to an X-Force movie.
X-Force is sort of an X-Men version of the Avengers, but X-Force takes a more militant and aggressive approach toward its enemies compared to the X-Men. This means we could see characters such as Deadpool and Psylocke joining forces, despite Psylocke appearing as a villain in X-Men: Apocalypse.
If Deadpool performs well at the box office this weekend, we could definitely see an X-Force movie being made. So far, Deadpool is getting amazing reviews, and X-Men: Apocalypse’s trailers have been well-received.
Deadpool lands in theaters Friday, February 12, and X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters on May 27, 2016. Be sure to stay after for Deadpool’s after-credits scene in case they show an additional scene involving the X-Force.
