The five new ‘Power Rangers’– R.J. Cyler, Becky G., Ludi Lin, Dacre Montogomery and Naomi Scott– appeared at SDCC, but Lionsgate, the studio that is releasing the modern big screen adaptation, didn’t hold a panel at that gathering. But now that the film is growing closer to release, there will big a big panel at New York Comic Con this weekend.
There was some controversy surrounding the posters featuring the heroes and their Zords, but there should be no problems with this latest batch of new posters. Each hero gets their own, spotlighting them striking martial arts poses, as the characters on the original show were wont to do. As a bonus, we get a good glimpse of their Power Coins which indicate that indeed, the heroes will each pilot their traditional vehicles: Billy/Blue/Tricerotops; Jason/Red/Tyrannosaurus Rex; Kimberly/Pink.Pterodacyle; Trini/Yellow/Sabretooth Tiger; and Zack/Black/Mastodon.
Check them out:
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.
