Newcomer Lana Condor Cast as Jubilee in Upcoming 'X-Men: Apocalypse'
Growing up, I was a huge fan of "X-Men: The Animated Series" with just about every single other kid that lived on my block. Everyone was obsessed with Wolverine, Gambit, and Cyclops, but personally, Jubilee was my favorite X-Man of the entire series. First off, she was young and stylish with a cool punk attitude. Secondly, her mutation was that she could shoot fireworks out of her hands. (How cool is that?!) I can only imagine Jubilee growing up to be the best TGIFriday's waitress of all time. ("We've got a birthday in the house! PEW PEW PEW PEW!")
But I digress.
'X-Men' franchise filmmaker Bryan Singer has officially announced that not only will Jubilee be a part of the new X-Men film, "X-Men: Apocalypse", but the role is going to be played by 18-year-old newcomer actress Lana Condor.
The idea of using a newcomer is completely awesome, especially since I think Marvel movies thus far haven't been doing the greatest job at hiring lesser-knowns and keep recycling famous face after famous face.
What do you guys thing? Does Lana look like a good fit for Jubilee?
In any case, I'm so excited to check out "X-Men: Apocalypse" when it finally comes out, and I know I'm not the only one!

@OGMoneyCash I hope the cast has even more newcomers. It would be cool for them to use the movie to make more new film stars! And @candyland1986 is Jubilee your favorite X-Man??/

Ha ha @beywatch X something righttttt!?? And yes more series movies, Ironman, Avengers, should also cast newcomers and introduce them as the member or villain. What do you think?

@OGMoneyCash I think so. I'm tired of all the Chrises being in every single comic book movie. Chris Pine. Chris Pratt. Chris Evans. Chris Hemsworth. Shoot, even Chris O'Donnell was Robin in two Batman movies. WE NEED VARIETY.

Jubilee not my favorite x men character. I like Storm. But I'm still glad that more characters are being introduced. She was a main character to me in the cartoon and comics it felt weird not having her in the movies. There are other characters that I think should be in the movies too...X-Men isn't complete without them.

@candyland1986 Storm was always my second favorite. I love all the women in the X-Men comics. They're all such badasses.
