Director Bryan Singer has confirmed Jubilee will be in the new X-Men film.

The teenage mutant will played by newcomer Lana Condor.

In the comics and TV show, Jubilee was a fan favourite despite having the relatively unexciting powers of shooting 'pyrotechnic energy plasmoids' - essentially fireworks - from her hands, which never had any effect on super-villains besides occasionally distracting them.

Jubilee is a wealthy Chinese American teen gymnast living in moneyed Bevely Hills, who becomes an orphan when hitmen target her parents.

She is usually recognisable by her trademark yellow trenchcoat.

Singer will be glad he has new mutants to introduce, after Jennifer Lawrence confirmed on Monday that she will now longer play Mistique and that the next X-Men film will be her last. Her fellow blue mutant Nicholas Hoult who plays Beast also hinted at the same.
