In a new video posted to her Instagram account, Munn showed off her ambidextrous sword skills in front of Ryan Reynolds before striking a fierce pose. To his dismay, the Deadpool star learned a valuable lesson: never bring a balloon weapon to a katana fight.

Both actors are making their debut in Fox’s X-Men cinematic universe of films. This month will see Reynolds headlining Deadpool when the film opens this Friday, while Munn will unveil her Psylocke skills in Apocalypse, out May 27.
