Last Friday (24th March), a motion poster of Green Ranger was unveiled, much to the delight of fans.
The new “Power Rangers” movie had a super interesting mid-credits scene that teases the arrival of Tommy Oliver aka Green Ranger. Although most people would expect Tommy to be a guy, the cast is advocating for a girl.
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dacre Montgomery (who plays the Red Ranger in the film) shared his thoughts of a Green Ranger gender swap. “A lot of the cast and I have discussed that we think it should be a girl. It makes it even 3 girls, 3 boys,” said the 22-year-old Aussie actor.
Although Tommy Oliver was mentioned during the bonus scene, the person was nowhere in sight. Instead the camera zooms in on Tommy’s green jacket draped over the empty chair.
“It’s left blank. It’s a cliff-hanger. Whoever you’re going to drop into that position — whether it’s a girl — it’s inevitably going to create drama. It’ll be interesting to drop that drama into it and see how we all relate to it and work with it,” added Montgomery, while highlighting the ambiguity of the teaser.
