For those of you who have been wondering what the new Power Rangers costumes would look like in the upcoming movie, here you go! This image was released by Entertainment Weekly, and it looks like something Tony Stark would have come up with. Talking about the costume designs, production designer Andrew Menzies says:
"It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. 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.”
I never expected the costumes in this film to be spandex. I think we all knew they were going to get some kind of heavy armor-type upgrade like this, so I'm not really surprised. The suits look fine, and it will be cool to actually see them in action.
We've previously seen photos of the team without their costumes, which you can see here. The group is comprised of actors Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger. Then of course, there's Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
Power Rangers is currently in production, and it hits theaters on March 24th, 2017. What do you think of the new Power Rangers costumes?
