Bryan Singer has cast his Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse

03.25.2015

Another new mutant will join the roster of heroes for Bryan Singer's X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and we now have the first look at her. The director shared the first shot of the newly cast Jubilee, Lana Condor via his Instagram. This appears to be the acting debut for Condor who will portray the fan favorite mutant.

Jubilee has played prominently in a lot of X-Men comics and animated series but her big screen appearances have been relegated to minor roles in the second and third films where she was portrayed by Kea Wong. The teenaged Jubilation Lee joined the comics in the late 1980s and has stuck around since thanks to her spunky attitude and ability to shoot plasma energy from her hands.

It is unknown how significantly Jubilee will factor into the events of X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, but with the new round of younger actors playing Nightcrawler, Storm, Jean Grey, and Scott Summers, I would expect this to be a glimpse of what the X-Men will look like after the bigger names like Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry take reduced roles or depart the franchise after this film.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE begins production soon in preparation for the slated May 27, 2016 release date.

I'd officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee, #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #XMEN #Apocalypse

Nice, hopefully a good role. I guess though if she's in the 80's, that'll make her appearances as a high schooler in X-Men/X2 possibly odd. Though I guess with the time travel anything is possible.

I've always loved her character, especially in the 90s series. Pretty excited now!

So this movie is going to feel like an episode of the 90s Fox X-Men cartoon?

Was "Apocalypse" the storyline where Jubillee turned out to be the most powerful mutant ever when she went Omega level? Or was that a later storyline?

While it's nice to see Jubilee finally getting some attention, is there really much point, seeing as they basically swapped her with Rogue?

This is where Singer is going to prove how good he is because if he he makes her cool that would be something even Marvels best writers and Fox kids couldn't make happen with that lame character no matter how hip they tried to make her.

So the character they've had 3 times in the original trilogy but was cut all 3 times is now back in the 80's? I thought like what UL said that Dazzler was more era specific than Jubilee who was more 90's. Either way I'm happy she maybe will finally appear on screen.
