Bryan Singer has selected actress Lana Condor to portray the mutant Jubilee in his upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

The director made the announcement on Twitter and Instagram. “I’d officially like to welcome our newest mutant #JubilationLee, #Jubilee @LanaCondor to #XMEN,” Singer wrote.

Jubilee first appeared in the “Uncanny X-Men” in 1989 as a teenage mutant capable of generating explosive plasmoids from her hands. She was often portrayed wearing a yellow raincoat.

Singer will direct the film from a script by Simon Kinberg, Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty.

Jennifer Lawrence confirmed Monday that “Apocalypse” will be her last film in the franchise.

X-Men: Apocalypse” will star James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne reprising their roles along with franchise newcomers Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Neither Ian McKellen nor Patrick Stewart will be returning as their older iterations of Magneto and Professor X.

The film is set for a May 27, 2016, release.
