Deadpool vs. Psylocke swordfight leaves Ryan Reynolds deflated

X-Men: Apocalypse (opens in new tab) star Olivia Munn stole the show in the Super Bowl trailer (opens in new tab) for the upcoming mutant blockbuster, and she almost does it again in her latest Instagram video. Granted, she's not slicing flying cars in half as Psylocke, but the amusing swordplay standoff between Munn and Deadpool (opens in new tab)'s Ryan Reynolds is still impressive.

The short clip shows off Munn's katana expertise as she juggles a sword from hand-to-hand, spinning and slicing the blade through the air. As for her opponent, well, it is Deadpool. Were you really expecting him to take it seriously?

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller and Gina Carano, Deadpool opens in the UK on February 10, 2016 and the US on February 12. Directed by Bryan Singer and starring Oscar Isaac, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Sophie Turner, and Olivia Munn, X-Men: Apocalypse opens on May 19 in the UK, and May 26 in the US.
