Power Rangers Movie Suits First Look
So we’ve seen what Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) will look like but everyone wants to know what the actual Rangers will look like in the new Power Rangers movie. Well the wait is over because Entertainment Weekly revealed the first official look at the five ranger’s new battle suits. Obviously these are not the colorful spandex suits that we grew up with in the early 90s. However, they are still pretty reminiscent of what we’ve come to expect from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
Honestly I wasn’t sure what to expect especially since Hollywood has a track record of drastically diverting from the source material to fit their own vision. However, I’m actually pretty pleased with the new look. The new suits are definitely updated and look battle ready, but you still get that Ranger feel that we all know and love. It will be interesting to see them in action but my over all impression of the new suits is a good one. I like them.
Taken from Entertainment Weekly; “It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume,” production designer Andrew Menzies (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) admits. “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.” So far things are actually looking pretty good for the 5 teenagers with attitude. The new Power Rangers movie is set to hit theaters March 24, 2017.
