Director Bryan Singer used his Instagram (as usual) to announce that Lana Condor has been cast as Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Condor is the definition of a Hollywood newcomer, with no known TV or film credits. Jubilee has appeared in cameos in previous X-Men films. She was played by Katrina Florece in X-Men (2000) and Kea Wong in X2: X-Men United (2003) X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).
Created by Chris Claremont and Marc Silvestri, Jubilee first appeared in 1989’s Uncanny X-Men #244, and was a mainstay in the 1990s animated series.
We all know that product placement is here to stay, as are “the official whatever of whoever” sponsorships. We live with it. But here is a benefit of the advertising partnership: sometimes we get to see cool new footage in the commercials, as is the case with Audi and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
A:AoU opens May 1. I presume Audis are available now at your local dealerships.
