Bryan Singer announced via Instagram Wednesday that actress Lana Condor will play mutant Jubilee in the upcoming film “X-Men Apocalypse.”
“I’d officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee, #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #XMEN #Apocalypse,” Singer wrote in the post. The latest installment in the “X-Men” franchise will be Condor’s debut gig.
In the “X-Men” universe, Jubilee is a teenage mutant capable of generating explosive plasmoids from her hands. She was a central character in the 1990’s cartoon series.
Condor is the most recent hire for the film. Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner and Alexandra Shipp will portray Nightcrawler, Cyclops, Jean Grey and Storm, respectively.
