Mighty Morphin Power Rangers returns to movie theaters in 2017 and this first look of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa — one of the most iconic villains from the original TV show — suddenly has us morphing in our shorts.
A powerful sorceress, the original Rita Repulsa was an evil humanoid alien witch bent on galactic domination. Banks looks just as ready to dominate the Earth as well as a few S&M gatherings.
Judging from this first pic, we’re all in on the reboot.
Directed by Dean Israelite and written by the team behind X-Men: First Class, Thor and Kong: Skull Island, the Power Rangers reboot is currently shooting in Vancouver and is scheduled for a March 24, 2017 release date.
