"X-Men: Apocalypse" - Enter 'Blink'

Take another look @ Chinese actress Bingbing Fan aka 'Blink' in "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" covering the Spring 2015 issue of "Elle" (China) magazine. Fan has confirmed she will be returning for writer/director Bryan Singer's prepping Fox feature "X-Men: Apocalypse", as Marvel Comics' teleporting mutant:

"I am contracted to appear in the next four 'X-Men' films," said Fan.

"In the comics, 'Blink' is a Caucasian girl, so I was curious why Bryan wanted an Asian to play the role," Fan said about her debut in Singer's "X-Men: Days Of Future Past".

"He said that it’s time for Blink to make an appearance and, for her debut she has to be simply marvelous. It was an offer I couldn't refuse."

Created by writer Scott Lobdell and illustrator Joe Madureira for Marvel Comics' "Uncanny X-Men" #317 (1994), 'Blink'  has the ability to teleport herself and others at will.

She can also utilize these powers in a destructive manner by using her power to teleport only parts of objects. Her 'portals' are typically pink and accompanied by a "Blink" sound.

Blink also has an unusual appearance...

...with lilac-colored skin, dark pink hair, pointed ears, pupil-less green eyes and birthmarks across her face.
