‘X-Men’ Staple Jubilee Cast in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Despite being a core member of the X-Men (or rather the newer 90s X-Men), Jubilee (full name Jubilation Lee) has yet to appear in the live-action film series, or at least not in a major role. Until now.

That’s right, Jubilee will actually appear in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Here’s hoping she’ll be wearing her trademark yellow coat — and she actually has lines.
