It's hard enough being a mutant, what with the general persecution and the giant killer robots and all. Now, thanks to a question from Bravo's Andy Cohen, we have mutant turning against mutant!
The development occurred during James McAvoy's appearance on the late night Bravo talk show "Watch What Happens Live," where McAvoy had to weigh in on which X-Man has the worst power. McAvoy, who returns for his third go as Charles Xavier in "X-Men: Apocalypse," has seen his fair share of mutant action over the last few years, so he has the experience to answer this question.
When asked, McAvoy responded: "Fireworks [shooting] out of your fingers kind of suck." McAvoy's referring to the powers of Jubilee, although McAvoy clarified that the Jubilee of the film (played by Lana Condor) will actually be more of a "mistress of electricity" than a Fourth of July firecracker.
Jubilee joins a cast of characters that includes the telekinetic Jean Grey, the teleporting Nightcrawler, the weather-controlling Storm, the eye-blast shooting Cyclops, the telepathic Psylocke, the super-speedster Quicksilver, the shape-shifting Mystique and even more. Whether or not fireworks shooting out of your hands is "suckier" than having uncontrollable eye blasts or blue skin and a tail is a matter of personal opinion.
Directed by Bryan Singer, "X-Men: Apocalypse" opens on May 27, 2016.
