The upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will serve as the conclusion to the X-Men film trilogy that began in 2011 with X-Men: First Class and continued last year with X-Men: Days of Future Past. James McAvoy (young Professor X), Michael Fassbender (young Magneto), and Jennifer Lawrence (young Mystique) - the three leads in the First Class series - are all expected to step away from the X-Men franchise after Apocalypse, too.
It's a good thing, then, that Apocalypse will introduce not just younger versions of mutants featured in past X-Men movies, but also those that haven't been featured yet - not in any significant capacity, that is. One such mutant, as we learned today, will be Jubilation Lee a.k.a. Jubilee: a character who has made blink-and-you'll-miss-her cameos in previous live-action X-Men films (and who almost showed up in Days of Future Past's post-apocalyptic future setting).
Jubilee, who possesses a super-human ability to create pyrotechnic energy plasmoids with her hands, first appeared in the Uncanny X-Men comics in 1989. She was the youngest member of the X-Men during the early 1990s comics, around the same time that she was featured as one of the main characters on the '90s X-Men animated TV show. The character, as mentioned before, has been brought to life in live-action form before (by Katrina Florence and Kea Wong), but in Apocalypse it will be newcomer Lana Condor's turn to play the role - and fingers crossed, she'll actually get more than a minute or two of screen time.
Bryan Singer, who is directing Apocalypse (his fourth X-Men movie to date), confirmed the Jubilee news, as you can see below:
