I’ve gone on the record before about my personal history with Power Rangers: I was young enough when its earliest incarnation arrived in that I watched and enjoyed it for a brief period of time. I bear no love for it now, but I also bear it no ill will and have found the majority of the fans I have encountered online to be friendly, reasonable, and frequently self-aware in their love for this incredibly goofy series. It’s easy to be snarky about director Dean Israelite‘s new Power Rangers movie that is set to open next year, but this is a case where I’m trying to keep by chin up and my mind open despite certain fibers of being demanding to release the sarcasm engine.
I open with this because a new Power Rangers photo has has arrived in the pre-Comic-Con wave of news and the best I can muster is a simple oof. These costumes may look amazing on film. In motion, they make be exactly what Power Rangers fans are looking for. But as an agnostic observer (who didn’t hate the initial reveal) looking in from the outside…oof.

I wasn’t a fan of the Power Rangers television series when it aired — maybe I was a year or two too old for it, or maybe I was already over my Voltron days. Whatever the case, I haven’t found excitement for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. And then last month Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston signed on to the film as Zordon, a character that appeared as a giant floating head in a tube in the TV series. I thought, that’s interesting. And then a teaser poster for the film was released (you can see it right after the jump), which was not what I expected from this particular franchise. Okay, so maybe I am a little curious now to see what the Power Rangers movie will be.
And now we have Bryan Cranston talking about how the movie is wildly different from the 1990s television series, comparing more to a Dark Knight-style reimagining of the franchise.

Suicide Squad is the most talked about movie online this past week.

The past decade has been kind to Bryan Cranston as he has evolved from a scene-stealing character actor into one of the most celebrated performers of his generation, winning accolades (and Emmys) for his work on Breaking Bad before snagging a Tony award and an Oscar nomination. He’s essentially earned himself a lifetime pass, the chance to pursue whatever roles he wants and take on any challenges that excite him.
And now he’s chosen to play a floating blue head that lives in a glass tube and mentors a bunch of teenagers with attitude in the fine art of defending Earth from alien marauders. Yes, Bryan Cranston has been cast as Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. You keep on doing you, Mr. Cranston.
