Watching my second Fyre Festival documentary of the week… this… it gets weirder with every minute of footage I watch.
Poor Jubilee. She just can’t seem to last more than a few seconds in an X-Men movie. For such a central character in the 1990s X-Men cartoon, she can’t win int he films.
In X-Men she was played by Katrina Florence. In X2 and X-Men: Last Stand she was played by Kea Wong. In all three of those instances she was an extra in classroom scenes. Then, in X-Men: Apocalypse it looked like she would get her big break and would be portrayed by Lana Condor (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before). And then… most of her scenes got cut.
Now it’s time for X-Men: Dark Phoenix and surely she’ll be back!
“No, I didn’t end up doing Dark Phoenix ’cause I was doing To All the Boys,” Condor told Collider recently. “I hope ‘X-Men’ lives on so hopefully in the future I’ll be able to go back to that family because it’s where I feel very indebted and loyal to… It’s funny because I, of course, love ‘X-Men’ forever. ‘X-Men’ was such an incredible experience because I had never worked before, I was so excited to be there. I love Jubilee and I hope that in the future she’ll get her due.”
Some day, Jubilee… some day.
