The latest addition to X-MEN: APOCALYPSE has been confirmed by director Bryan Singer via Instagram. Jubilee, a fan favorite from the 90’s cartoon, has been cast and will be portrayed by young actress Lana Condor.
We do not know where she came from or what the film’s plans are for Jubilee, but this is definitely shaping up to be a huge movie full of popular X-Men characters. From the First Class trilogy characters as Xavier, Mystique, Beast, and Magneto, it is also confirmed that Cyclops, Jean Grey, and a young Storm will be making appearances as well. Further indication is that a future Magneto and Storm, portrayed by their early counterparts Ian McKellan and Halle Berry, and it wouldn’t be an X-Men film without Wolverine showing up at least once. Lastly, Gambit as Channing Tatum will somehow make it into the film.
Thats right. Almost every X-man to ever exist all in one film taking the fight to Apocalypse, the biggest baddie that isn’t the US Government in an X-Men film to date. Will we have another X-Men 3 on our hands or is the most brilliant team-up film ever? We’ll see in 2016.
