X-Men: Apocalypse star Lana Condor recently discussed how she now views the Jubilee role.
In 2016, Lana Condor made her cinematic debut as Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse. Fresh off the heels of the critically acclaimed X-Men: Days of Future Past, the X-Men franchise was poised to enter a new era of greatness. Unfortunately, X-Men: Apocalypse was a failure by many standards and marked the beginning of the end for the X-Men franchise. One of the many failures the X-Men film presented was the lack of lines for Lana Condor’s Jubilee.
Excitment was rampant when it was announced that Jubilee would be making her theatrical debut in X-Men: Apocalypse. However, when the X-Men film hit cinemas, many were disappointed to find out that the much touted Jubilee role was merely a cameo. Lana Condor only had a handful of lines, as did other Asian characters in the X-Men film. Since leaving the X-Men franchise behind and focusing on her To All The Boys franchise, Lana Condor has revealed that a bevy of scenes and lines she had as Jubilee were cut.
Speaking to Stylecaster, Lana Condor discussed how her thoughts on the X-Men film have changed since the film was unleashed to the public.
“In the moment, I was happy for any part I could get.Now, if that same experience happened, I would be pretty discouraged and upset and feel there was an injustice.”
It doesn’t seem as if we’ll be getting a brand new cut of X-Men: Apocalypse showcasing all of the cut footage of Lana Condor’s Jubilee. It’s quite disappointing that Jubilee was never able to be the runaway star of the X-Men film, especially because fans were rooting for Lana Condor’s portrayal to be a success. Since the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, Lana Condor hasn’t expressed interest in returning to the role of Jubilee. With Lana Condor’s other successes, she’s opened up the floodgates to be one of Hollywood’s leading actresses, without the help of a superhero franchise.
