With the history of the ‘Power Rangers‘ rooted in a long-running television series, it should come as no surprise that the new film would want to become an ongoing franchise and the mid-credit scene sets things up for just that. Dean Israelite hasn’t just taken a fresh coat of paint to the series which become the go to for 90s geeks but tried to embrace it while giving us something new. What will have fans possibly most excited though is the mid-credit scene that sets up a future film assuming their box office debut morphs into a huge pile of money for the studio.
Obviously, this means that there is a huge spoiler below so I’d turn back now if you want this to be a surprise.
When the mid-credit scene hits, we’re back in school and being introduced to a new student at Angel Grove High. We don’t actually see the student, but a teacher calls out his name for detention. Who is this recent addition to the school that has already landed themselves in trouble? Why Tommy Oliver of course.
Yes, the eventual Green Ranger who had become the central character in the television series will be in the sequel if it happens. According to Israelite:
“Obviously we’re teasing something at the end that relates to [Tommy], so it sort of all felt organic.”
From Green to White to Red to Red to Black, Tommy has taken on the mantle of quite a few Rangers during his tenure on the show.
Are you looking forward to the new take on ‘Power Rangers’ when it hits the big screen later this month? Excited that they’re already planning for Tommy to be introduced in the sequel? Share your thoughts below!
