What I think Tommy Oliver will be like in the sequel.
Tommy will be a female, Native American/First Nation
…and will be a bit of a jerk.
Now, before you get pissed off at me, hear me out.
Usually, Tommy is depicted as constantly switching sides and being a badass loner sort of character, so I think to update the character, she will sort of be more violent and aggressive to separate her from the others. She’s the only one of them who doesn’t want to change her personality.
After she somehow finds the green power coin, she joins the team and helps them fight off some baddies. She will completely be in love with her powers and go crazy with them, maybe getting a bit out of control. The others begin to get annoyed by her, Trini especially, so they try to find her and talk to her at her house.
They walk over but before they can walk inside the house, they hear Tommy shouting with her parents, getting into an argument that eventually gets..violent.
It will be revealed that she’s going through some tough sh#t at home and the reason she acts like a jerk is because she wants control of her own life and fighting and bullying is the only way to get control.
The others sympathize with her, especially Trini, and don’t bring it up, acting nicer to her and bonding to her. However, Rita somehow returns or some other villain appears and tempts Tommy to join the dark side. Tommy doesn’t trust the villain but somehow, another confrontation with the Rangers (maybe Tommy accidently nearly kills one of their parents during a fight scene) turns her to the dark side.
In the final act, she’s fighting the Rangers but eventually comes back to their side and defeats the villain in a giant freaking Dragon zord.
And the movie will end with her finally getting along with the group.
