She’ll be joining Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Scott Summers) and Alexandra Shipp (Ororo Munroe). Jubilee was a mainstay on the 90s ‘X-Men: The Animated Series,’ but she’s largely been relegated to supporting status since then. ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ hits theaters on May 27, 2016.

Jubilee is an interesting addition since she’ll essentially be a founding member with the X-Men relaunch. What do you think?
