‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Casts Newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee

Marvel
Marvel

Jubilee is one of the more wildly divisive characters from X-Men — you either love or loathe her to pieces. Throughout five X-Men films and a few spinoffs, Jubilee has never really been featured, although she did put in some very minor appearances in the first few films. That’s all changing now as director Bryan Singer has cast newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse.

We’re That Much Closer to Another Comics Movie: ‘I Kill Giants’ Movie Has Funding

i_kill_giants_011p00-01

ComicsAlliance folks are big fans of Joe Kelly and J.M. Ken Niimura's 2008 graphic novel I Kill Giants, with its feisty lead character and manga-style art --- and the lovely deluxe fifth anniversary edition that came out just last year. Thus, it's exciting to hear that the movie adaptation directed by Anders Walter has locked in funding from Treehouse Pictures. Given how many steps it takes to get a comics movie from optioned to actual reality, this means we're that much more likely to actually see an I Kill Giants movie.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Will Be Jennifer Lawrence’s Last ‘X-Men’ Film

This isn’t exactly surprising news, since it’s been speculated for some time now that Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy might be making X-Men: Apocalypse their last outing with the franchise. Lawrence and Fassbender in particular are in increasingly high demand (and they aren’t particularly cheap, either), so it makes sense that either or both of them wouldn’t want to remain tied to the franchise for much longer. Lawrence has confirmed as much in a new interview, putting the speculation to rest once and for all.

‘Deadpool’ Production Begins; Vanessa and Weasel Confirmed as Characters

For a long time it seemed like the Deadpool movie could never happen. The character's first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine completely mis-read Deadpool's appeal despite the seemingly perfect casing of Ryan Reynolds. When Reynolds made his DC with the Green Lantern movie for Warner Bros., it seemed unlikely that Deadpool would ever get back in track.

The canny decision to leak some test footage back in July of last year for a Deadpool movie treatment that relies heavily on CGI to embrace the character's Looney Tunes cartoonishness caused enough of a stir that Deadpool was suddenly alive again, with Reynolds still attached to star. Now we have evidence from the cast that the movie has entered into production, which means it is really, actually happening.

Avengers 2 doesn't open for another few weeks, but deep inside Marvel headquarters they've already begun turning their attention to the next big movie: Captain America: Civil War.

Nobody — and we mean nobody — does Comic-Con quite like Marvel. In 2006 Marvel Studios held their first ever Comic-Con panel (announcing the Captain America and Thor movies) and has returned every year since. They've ruled the roost with dynamic, exciting presentations that mix showmanship with big announcements. But, that's all about to change. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed last night that, for the first time in nine years, Marvel Studios is skipping Comic-Con.
