Possible Power Ranger Spoilers
Ok folks since its Fan Friday, i thought I would share some “possible” spoilers for the upcoming movie courtesy from the good people over on The Wrap. Now while none of this is 100% confirmed, a few bits and pieces from the various media releases even to some of Andre’s Youtube vids…seem to give it some credibility. So without further ado….SPOILERS! MAYBE?
- Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa is 65 million years old and is a former Green Ranger gone rogue.
This is pretty much all but confirmed at this point. She’s in green and gold and has the Green Power Coin.
- Bryan Cranston’s Zordon was the original Red Ranger millions of years ago, long before being transformed into a state of pure energy.
A while back ( i forgot where though) in an international description of the movie/characters it was mentioned that Zordon was the former Red Ranger at one point.
Bill Hader’s Alpha 5 is a robot with a supple metallic body and is able to mutate into different designs to maximize his role.
Cool if ending up being true. So far Alpha’s design has seemed to garner the most fan criticism.
Putties will make an appearance in “Power Rangers” in a scene where Rita Repulsa is trying to steal gold bullion from the Central Bank of Russia. Five Putties made of stone in a later scene challenge the Rangers. Goldar’s molecular essence is scattered around the globe after he was vaporized into a cloud of microscopic gold particles in the opening action sequence on Ancient Earth. Rita Repulsa collects gold to resurrect Goldar… and the Rangers have just 71 hours to stop her.
Goldar being Rita’s creation doesn’t seemed far fetched. And one of the voice lines from the new Megazord is “That’s a lot of Gold!” Plus Goldar was the first of Rita’s monsters that she made grow. So it would seem appropriate if that’s who the rangers face this time around.
Now things get…interesting
The Zeo Crystal is protected by a force field. Anything that comes in contact with it is vaporized. Goldar was created with a single purpose – to penetrate the force field and steal the crystal. The Zeo Crystal is an artifact that channels the Morphing Grid – a dimension that weaves through all things and what gives the “Power Rangers” their power. The crystal was hidden on Earth to keep it out of the hands of those who would use it as a weapon.
While its certainly a little early and presumptions that the Rangers will become STRONGER THAN BEFORE! GO ZEO! it would be a fun easter egg for long time fans. Plus the Zeo Crystal would make sense as the movie’s Macguffin. Sure it would get some comparisons to the MCU’s Infinity Stones/Gems. But Marvel doesn’t have the copyright on extrestial gems of incredible power.
Rita Repulsa has been trying to deliver the Zeo Crystal to her master, Lord Zedd, for a long time. It would make quite a statement, as he burned half his face off trying to steal it himself.
In one of the recent #REPULSATAKESOVER tweets Rita mentions she was “tasked” with destroying the Rangers. Who would task her with this mission? Zedd is the only answer. In the show Zedd looks the way he does due to a bad encounter with the Zeo Crystal. So it would make sense he would want to use the crystal’s powers for his nefarious plans.
So again. None of this confirmed but seems extremely plausible in my opinion. Plus no giant sky hole!
