LOS ANGELES, March 26 (UPI) -- Lana Condor has joined the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse.
The newcomer actress will portray mutant Jubilation Lee, aka Jubilee. Katrina Florence previously portrayed the character in X-Men, while Kea Wong took over for X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand.
"I'd officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #XMEN #Apocalypse," director Bryan Singer announced Wednesday on Instagram.
In the Marvel comics, Jubilee lives a comfortable life in Beverly Hills until her parents are murdered by hitmen. She discovers her ability to generate pyrotechnic energy plasmoids from her hands, and is taken in by the X-Men after becoming close to Wolverine.
X-Men: Apocalypse will see the team of mutants take on ancient supervillain Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac). Jennifer Lawrence will return as Mystique in her final X-Men film, with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Michael Fassbender as Magneto and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.
