Deadpool vs. Psylocke swordfight leaves Ryan Reynolds deflated

X-Men: Apocalypse star Olivia Munn stole the show in the Super Bowl trailer 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'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?
