Latest X-Men: Apocalypse Trailer Lets You See Oscar Isaac’s Real Face! But Where Is Jubilee?

Yes, we see the first face of Apocalypse in this new X-Men trailer which just happens to be the lovely Oscar Isaac. But I’m getting concerned about Jubilee.

I first worried about the time Jubilee (actor Lana Condor) might have on screen in the film if she wasn’t featured in either of the main posters. We got just one brief look at her in the first trailer and I know a lot of fans will be upset if she gets the shaft again.

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

  1. Jubilee is my favorite mutant! I’ve been really disappointed that she wasn’t in the last few trailers. I found this site via asking for alternatives to TMS… that community is incredibly toxic, but I like the way this one’s mission statement is worded!

    I stopped reading X-Men books in the early 90’s, so I’m not very familiar with Jubilee, or even what happened to Psylocke. The last I remember, she was Captain Britain’s sister, and was a supporting character in Excalibur.

    Since these movies seem to be affecting later fans’ feelings about the X-Men, and their characterization, I’ll leave commentary to them.

    From my own viewpoint, starting reading the books around the time of the Phoenix Saga (the first time around), none of the film versions of the characters have been close to their comic’s versions in the slightest. I’ve come to terms with that.

    Truthfully, I’d love to see a mini-series that faithfully followed the fall of Jean Gray, including all the weird Shi’ar space stuff. But that’d never happen.

    The best I can recall, I think I stopped reading shortly after Angel got the metal wings from Apocalypse. Maybe a few books into that story-line, so this is all newish to me.

    Sorry for the rambling post.

  4. As with all of the X-Men films, this one looks like it will be most enjoyed by people that have never read/watched anything else related to X-Men or people that do some irreparable harm to their own brains before seeing the movie. Or people that can just ignore everything they get wrong about the world and characters.

    I can do that. I can ignore their terrible, terrible mistakes.

    …just don’t talk to me about the Preacher adaptation.

      I am not happy about Storm being on Apocalypse’s side. Not. One. Bit.

      Storm has been a chameleon over the years, for certain, but she has NEVER been on the side of supporting genocidal maniacs.

        • frodobatmanvader says:

          Yeah, but the thing about Storm is that she longs to be a pacifist. She recognizes that in her position, that’s just not possible right now, but that’s still what she wants.

          More than any other character on the X-Men (even Professor X!), Storm is the one who empathizes with outcasts, and understands that, at some point in their lives, everyone has been an outcast. That’s why she’s peaceful at heart.

          The fact that Bryan Singer has put that character on the side of fucking APOCALYPSE, of all people, just shows that even outside of casting Halle Berry in the part, he simply doesn’t understand Storm’s character at all.

      • It seems like Apocalypse is filling in for Shadow King in her origin & she’ll break free of his influence to join the X-Men.

    I have a ton of conflicting opinions on everything I’m seeing so far, and on the X-Men film series in general.

    I love Oscar Isaac, but I’m still not sure about how he’s going to pull the roll off. I’m pleasantly surprised by what I’m seeing of Psylocke so far (though I still hate the costume), but how are they going to handle her back story? Is she still a body swapped Brit in a Japanese woman’s body? I’m also conflicted about Storm… I don’t like the idea of her being on Apocalypse’s side. AT ALL. It feels like a total misread of the character, almost like having Mystique become a full blown hero… oh, wait. (I’m being facetious with that one a little, but I still find her Spike-ification to be an interesting trajectory).

    I’m just not sure how I feel, and after DoFP fixing so many issues I’ve had with the X-film franchise, I’d hate for then to blow it all again with this one.

  6. Adrian says:

    Also, I gotta say, it really annoys me in the first preview how Xavier dismisses Jean’s prophetic dream as “just a dream.” Xavier, could you be any more condescending? If anything though, it just seem way out of character for Xavier of all people to not trust that the mutant with vast telepathic ability, greater than his own, to be so dismissive.

    • frodobatmanvader says:

      “Out of character” seems to be a reoccurring motif with these films, unfortunately. Can you say “Storm siding with Apocalypse”?

  7. Philip Lopez says:

    I’m VERY worried she’s going to be the Darwin of this movie.
