The cast of Power Rangers gets their game on at the Fandango Studio during the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con on Friday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.
Becky G, Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin and Naomi Scott played a fun game after first stopping by SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio Channel at Hard Rock Hotel.
“We spent a bit of time sort of collaborating through the rehearsal process with other people before it was initially established that he was going to be playing the role,” Dacre dished to EW about working with Bryan Cranston on the upcoming film.
He added, “So we had a bit of contact with these other actors, and suddenly he came into the mix, and we were all like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Bryan Cranston.’”
The other casts of Power Rangers were also around the annual convention. Check out the pics below!
The cast of the Power Rangers are unmasked in this brand new still ahead of their 2016 San Diego Comic-Con appearance.
Becky G, Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler and Naomi Scott, who all got the poster treatment last week, are ready to meet the fans this weekend for the annual convention.
“Just overall, the whole experience,” Becky shared with EW about her excitement. “There’s so many people in costume and so many die-hard fans, and I’m more excited to meet the Power Rangers fanatics and learning more about what I’m doing. I was a fan growing up, but it’s still, like, a whole new world to be able to share this new insight with the new and old Power Rangers fans. ”
She added, “[My castmates and I] have our little Power Rangers WhatsApp group chat, because we’re all in different parts of the world. You’ve got Ludi [Lin, who plays the Black Ranger] in China, you’ve got Dacre [Montgomery, who plays the Red Ranger] in Australia, and Naomi [Scott, who plays the Pink Ranger] in the U.K. RJ [Cyler, who plays the Blue Ranger] and I are the only ones who live in L.A., so he came by to visit me in the studio. We’re all really looking forward to going. From what I hear, it’s like going to a whole other world.”
Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) has Trini (Becky G) by the throat in this brand new still from Power Rangers.
Becky, 19, chatted with Entertainment Weekly about her fight scene opposite Elizabeth.
“When we did our blocking, our run through, Elizabeth and I really wanted to make it fun, to make this scene as real as possible,” she shared. “Actually, I got to run through the wall a couple of times. I got thrown up against it and I got to break it myself. My stunt double of course was there, talking me through it, but I was really, really excited.”
Becky added, “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.”

“Meet Zack. Bet you couldn’t guess his favorite color,” Ludi joked on Facebook.
He added, “Btw. See you at @Comic_Con next week! ?#?BlackRanger? will personally hand you this poster. That’s how much he loves you…and apparently himself. Ha.”

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!
