Dean Israelite‘s Power Rangers (2017) is currently filming and thanks to EW, we have a first look at what Elizabeth Banks looks like as the infamous Power Rangers villain Rita Repulsa. Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa will be unlike anything we have seen before in many ways; this new costume looks more reptilian and Dragon-like. Power Rangers releases in movie theaters on March 24, 2017. Naomi Scott and David Denman also star in Power Rangers.
Elizabeth Banks told People:
It’s definitely a modern and edgy reimagining of the original Rita Repulsa. We wanted to give her a backstory that connects her to the new Rangers.
She also added:
Obviously, first, world domination. I’ve never played a villain before, let alone an alien warrior.
