This is not a drill.

Just a few hours ago, Bryan Singer announced over social media that Lana Condor will be stepping into the shoes of Miss Jubilation Lee — a.k.a. “Jubilee” — for X-Men: Apocalypse.

I'd officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee, #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #XMEN #Apocalypse

Jubilee first appeared in the comics in 1989, created by comic book rock stars Chris Claremont and Marc Silvestri. She didn’t reach a higher level of popularity until the 1990’s, though, when she was a main character on the “X-Men” animated series that ran on Fox. Even though Jubilee will be appearing in Apocalypse — which is set in the 1980s — she technically already showed up in Singer’s original two X-Men movies, along with 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.

Those appearances were only cameos, though, so Singer and his writers (Simon Kinberg, Michael Dougherty, and Dan Harris) are probably thinking that the age thing doesn’t matter too much after last year’s movie, Days of Future Past, basically changed the whole landscape of X-Men movie history and continuity.

Along with Jubilee, Singer’s already cast younger versions of Cyclops, Storm, and Jean Grey to appear in the film alongside the main cast members of First Class and Days of Future Past, and Jennifer Lawrence also recently said that Apocalypse is going to be her last time appearing in the X-Men series.

As far as the new actress is concerned, other than (according to her IMDb) the fact that she’s 5’2, not much else is known about Condor…but I’m sure that’ll change in the next 24 hours.

X-Men: Apocalypse will start shooting soon for release on May 27th, 2016. Stay tuned for more!
