Jenna Ortega has been in a variety of darkish and twisty films over the previous few years: She did a tour of slashers with X, The Babysitter: Killer Queen, Scream 5, and Scream 6, then over on TV there’s the second season of You, and after all the Netflix hit Wednesday, the place her dance scene went viral. So it is sensible that when she was on Saturday Evening Stay on March 11, they’d do sketches about none of these.
As a substitute they added to her array of roles as angsty teenagers attempting their greatest: Rogue from the X-Males.
Technically within the SNL sketch she’s not enjoying Rogue — she’s Zena Nutrino, a psychic and scholar on the “Professor Zander’s Academy for Extraordinary Kids,” who’s offended she’s not with the group doing precise essential issues. As a substitute she’s caught on the “College vs. College” quiz present squaring off towards the exceedingly regular West Grove Excessive college students.
It’s not a good struggle — West Grove doesn’t have tremendous powers, and Zena thinks the Shakespeare quote “to be or to not be” is from the character “Toby.” However sadly Professor Chandliss Zander says she has to play as a result of she will be able to’t management her powers simply but. Whereas which will sound extra just like the Darkish Phoenix, the distinguished white streak and inexperienced and yellow ensemble (a la the Jim Lee relaunch look) is straight out of Rogue’s wardrobe. The overall disdain for people although? That’s all Ortega.
However rejoice, Wednesday followers! If you need a glimpse of Ortega revisiting the Wednesday dance, the Please Don’t Destroy boys obtained her to do it yet another (final?) time.
