Check out the reveal of the new Power Rangers suits for the upcoming flick!
The reveal happened over at EW, where production designer Andrew Menzies opened up about the suit re-design.
“It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume,” he shared. “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”
However, fans are thinking Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) had some influence. Check out their tweets below!
“From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process,” director Dean Israelite shared with EW about the actors.
He added, “We switched all of the races around, but we made sure that the essence of each of those characters are who they were in the original show, and this really will be an origin story of those characters.”
Elizabeth Banks will star as villain Rita Repulsa in the movie, hitting theaters in 2017.
The original Pink Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson, is looking forward to seeing Naomi Scott as the new Pink Ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers movie.
“Congrats @NaomiScott you’ll make a GREAT #PinkRanger! Excited to c what @lionsgatemovies & @HaimSaban have in store for YOU #PowerRangers xo,” Amy wrote on Twitter after news of Naomi’s casting was announced on Wednesday.
“Thank you so much, I hope I can do you proud,” Naomi added.
Naomi, who co-starred with Bridgit in Lemonade Mouth, tweeted about another track on Bridgit‘s album, “Guess what I’m listening to……my tune man. @bridgitmendler yeah baby, finally I could buy it in the UK!!”
