'Power Rangers' First Official Look At The New Rangers

By Matt O'Bryant

Saban Entertainment and Lionsgate have already kicked off production on their highly anticipated Power Rangers reboot, and now they have released the first official photo from the film via Entertainment Weekly. The magazine also got a chance to speak with the director of the film Dean Israelite, where he spoke briefly about the new look of the Power Rangers in his film.

We’ve really pushed ourselves to make them feel different from any other superhero costume that’s out there. One key that’s different to the Power Ranger suits is that they’re not really suits that people get into. They’re suits that morph onto our kids, so they already have this almost metaphysical quality to them.

The director also when on to speak a little, about the villain of the film, the villainous Rita Repulsa, who will be played by Elizabeth Banks.

It’s very exciting that we got [Banks], and I think what she loves is the opportunity to really embrace the insanity and deliciousness of Rita Repulsa in terms of how weird and wonderful that character was, and really dive into and consume that character. You should always be off-balance when you’re watching her. Is she insane? Is she totally calculated? Does she know what she’s doing? Elizabeth can toe that line really well.

The Power Ranger's suits remind me, of the way they talked about the horrible Green Lantern suit that Ryan Reynolds wore in that failure, I'm hoping these suits are CGI suits. What about you guys? Do you like the new cast photo, are excited about this film? Sound-off in the comments with your thoughts.

Power Rangers is set to hit theaters on March 24th, 2017.
