Olivia Munn

  1. Margot Robbie, Focus, 2014.        First,  Kristen Stewart and  Emma Stone passed, then  Munn, Jessica Biel, Rose Byrne, Michelle Williams were assessed for Jess,  the beauty being coached in grifting techniques by an adoring Will Smith. 
  2. Morena Baccarin, Deadpool, 2015.      No question about who was to be Marvel’s pansexual, supersardonic, superhit’s fourth-wall breaking supervillain – Ryan Reynold had created the mould in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 2008. But who should be his lover, Vanessa Carlysle? Baccarin,  Munn (held  back for another Marvelverse rôle, Psylocke, in X-Men: Apocalpyse), the Irish Sarah Greene, Crystal Reed (she joined DC’s Swamp Thing series, 2019), Taylor Schilling from Orange is the New Black TV, 2013-2019…  plus two Aussies: Jessica De Gouw and Rebecca Ritters… they were all were seen before Baccarin (like Reynolds) achieved the rare double of winning both DC and Marvel comic characters.
