COMIC REEL: Jubilee & Psylocke’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” Powers Revealed; Cox Teases Epic “Daredevil” Fight Scene


JoBlo’s set visit to “X-Men: Apocalypse” revealed new information about characters like Jubilee and Psylocke.

“Her power in the comic books is fireworks. In this film, I can safely say that her power is more fire-plasmoid, electricity type,” said Lana Condor, who plays Jubilee. “She is a student at the X-Mansion and she’s been here for about 10 years. So she’s not new, unlike some of the other characters who have just arrived. She’s mostly with Scott, Jean, and Kodi [Nightcrawler]. They’re like her good core friend group. And, I think in this film she serves as a timepiece, ’cause you’ll never really forget that you’re, like, in the ’80’s. Because if you’ve seen my costume, like I’m straight out of the ’80’s, like, they literally took me out. And, she also serves as kind of comedic relief at times where things are-might be a little more tense and real S-H-I-T is going down.”


In an interview with, Katie Cassidy revealed that you will see more of Laurel Lance training with Oliver Queen.

“Absolutely. You will have a chance to see Laurel and Oliver training together, and I hope that there will be more,” said Cassidy. “One of my favorite scenes, actually, I recently thought.”

She also teased what’s to come for her character: “Well, the thing that I thought was so great about this year, and continue to do so, is that we see Laurel a lot stronger, and along with fighting when she goes out there as the Black Canary, we see her more polished, we see her more … professional. She’s in training, and fighting. I feel as if she’s become a lot stronger emotionally as well. I think that continues to go that direction. I feel like she’s the backbone for a lot of these characters, and she tries to see the best in people, and she is a strong woman, and I love that. I think that we continue to see more of that. I think you’ll see someone come along who you don’t necessarily expect Laurel to embrace, and she does. Having said that, that’s all I can tell you.”

The CW also released the first photo of Megalyn E.K. as Vixen as she’ll appear in “Arrow.”


While at the Winter 2016 TCAs, “Daredevil” lead told a group of reporters that there’s one fight sequence in season two that he’s eager for people to see — and it puts the first season’s elaborate, one-shot hallway fight scene to shame.

“There is one in particular that I’m really excited about because it’s kind of like an homage to that scene, but it’s almost like that scene on crack,” said Cox, as reported by

Collider spoke with Dominic Purcell at the TCAs, the actor that plays Heat Wave, and got his thoughts about the ex-villain’s role in the show.

Purcell said he does feel Heat Wave’s connection with White Canary. “Yeah, I sense that. There is certainly something there that he has for her. He doesn’t know what it is, but there’s something there. I think he respects the fact that a woman is taking charge. He likes that.” Overall, Heat Wave’s also surprised that he likes anyone on the team: “Yeah, he is kind of surprised. He doesn’t really like anyone. But he wants off the ship. He doesn’t really want anything to do with the ship. He wants off. The only reason he joined was to go back in time and steal shit, and now he wants to fucking get off. He’s over it, and people are pissing him off. Everyone pisses Mick off.”
