No, no or go, go Power Rangers as new movie Rangers suits are revealed?

May 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments





Woah… it looks like the Power Rangers have robbed Tony Stark!

Feast your eyes on the all new Power Rangers from the upcoming straight-faced (apparently) adaptation of the famous kids’ show.

In the picture are: Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy and they are no longer sporting skin-tight lycra but rather pretty tough looking body armour.

Diretor of this and Project Almanac, Dean Israelite, said: “The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis. These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.” 

production designer Andrew Menzies (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) adds: “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.”

What do you guys think of the new armour/suits? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
