Set in 1983, “X-Men: Apocalypse” moved the mutant franchise into a new era and introduced teenage versions of more than a few iconic superheroes. Jean Grey (Sophie Turner), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Jubilee (Lana Condor) all appeared in the film, expanding the X-Men’s world and roster once again.
Fans were excited to see Lana Condor’s Jubilee in the film, especially because her iconic comic book outfit was pretty faithfully recreated for the big screen. Still, Jubilee didn’t get much screentime, especially compared to all the other new mutants in the film. Still, Condor apparently bonded with the character and hopes to reunite with her sooner rather than later. She recently shared some fanart of her Jubilee on Instagram, writing in the caption that she wants to hang out with her again soon.
CBR spoke with Condor back in September about her future with the franchise, specifically her desire to return for more X-Men action as Jubilee.
“I’ve only heard rumors about all that,” said Condor, referencing rumors about an upcoming X-Men movie. “I think that probably the people who hired me wait until the very last minute to tell me anything — for this very reason! But I would love — if they were to have more X-Men movies, I’d love to. And if they were to have me in it, I’d love that. I’ve heard a little about ‘New Mutants,’ like reading the blogs, but I know all that is talk right now and stuff, but that’d be cool too.”
While it hasn’t been officially announced yet, there most likely is a new X-Men team movie in the works at Fox — one that’s been in pre-production under the working title “X-Men: Supernova.” Reports indicate that the film will most likely focus on the “Dark Phoenix Saga,” one of the most prominent X-Men stories of all time. Recently, franchise producer Simon Kinberg teased what may be ahead for the franchise.
“Well, I can’t comment on what we’re doing with this next ‘X-Men’ movie,” said Kinberg in a recent interview about the new X-Men film, “but I think a way to talk about it potentially, is to talk about ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ and then that being a Dark Phoenix movie that we didn’t get quite right. I think of maybe a few mistakes we made in that movie — and every movie has mistakes — but the main mistake we made in that movie was taking the Dark Phoenix story, which is such a vast and profound saga, and making it the subplot of the movie as opposed to the main plot of the movie. I think if we were to make a Dark Phoenix movie in the future, it would be a Dark Phoenix movie about her struggle, and really should be the A plot and the primary of the movie.”
The film is expected to begin production in May in Montreal.
