New ‘Power Rangers’ Posters Show The Teens Behind The Titans

We’re still eight months away from seeing the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back on the big screen, but Saban knows how to whet our appetite by giving us a glimpse of the heroes behind the helmets. Power Rangers recently released a series of five character posters exclusively for 2016’s San Diego Comic-Con. The posters show each of the five main characters with their respective ranger colors, looking serious and ready for business.

There has been a lot of anticipation around this film ever since it was first announced. We recently found out Bryan Cranston is returning to the Power Rangers as the head of Zordon. I say returning because Cranston has a history of voice acting for the Power Rangers, voicing Twin-Man and Snizard in the 1993 TV show. And Elizabeth Banks has been impressing fans with her turn as a less-coneheaded Rita Repulsa, as well as the rangers themselves. Becky G, who plays Yellow Ranger Trini, gushed to Entertainment Weekly about getting to shoot a major action scene with Banks.

“It was a bit intimidating for me because, you know, it’s Elizabeth! I look up to her a lot as an actress, so getting to work one on one with her is really cool. I learned a lot, and there were moments when I had to hit her, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I hope I don’t actually hit her!’ She really let me be hands on in a lot of the fighting, so it was cool,” Becky G said.

Becky G said shooting is winding down for Power Rangers, apart from some reshoots, but the rangers haven’t entirely gone their separate ways. She mentioned that she and the other rangers have a special WhatsApp group chat that they use to stay in touch as they prepare for San Diego Comic-Con. Power Rangers is set to come out March 24, 2o17.
