WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR The Power Rangers MOVIE!
If you haven’t headed to the theaters, we suggest you head to the theatres RIGHT NOW before reading anything beyond this point.
Seriously, GO! (or Go-Go!)
If you have seen the new movie, you know that if there is a second film, the Green Ranger is going to show up.
“There’s a post-credits scene, so people should stay,” director Dean Israelite says, revealing that this is the direction the sequel will go.
“It teased up the direction of what the next movie could be for people that know the brand it’s super exciting. There are so many ideas we’re kicking around in the direction of where the film leads you.”
In the scene, you hear a teacher in detention call out the name of “Tommy Oliver” (aka the name of the original Ranger), only to find an empty seat with a green jacket laying over it.
But is Tommy Oliver actually going to be a guy?
“A lot of the cast and I have discussed that we think it should be a girl,” Red Ranger actor Dacre Montgomery says. “It makes it even three girls, three boys.”
He adds for the storyline, “It’s left blank. It’s a cliffhanger. Whoever you’re going to drop into that position — whether it’s a girl, it’s inevitably going to create drama. It’ll be interesting to drop that drama into it and see how we all relate to it and work with it.”
