Green Ranger May Play Role In Power Rangers Sequel

Power Rangers star Dacre Montgomery talks about the possibility that the Green Ranger may figure into the planned sequel.

Speculation that the sixth ranger could make an appearance in the next installment was apparently sparked by a post-credits scene attached to the movie, which reportedly hints at the future involvement of the character. However, this is far from the only interesting development regarding the matter.

According to Montgomery, he and his co-stars have been discussing the possibility of making the Green Ranger female, noting that such a decision would result in the team having a perfect balance of males and females. Fans of the original 1990’s TV series will recall that the character was a male named Tommy Oliver and played by Jason David Frank, a fact that opens the door to backlash on the part of those who may not appreciate such a dramatic alteration of the Green Ranger.

Superherohype, the source of this story, shares the following synopsis of the film:

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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
