We’re getting into the thick of the season with Power Rangers movie news and rumors. If you are a person who doesn’t want to be spoiled, stop reading. Have you averted your eyes just yet? No. Alright, I’ll wait. How about now? Good. You’ve been warned!
We have already seen an official cast picture and an official picture of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, but we haven’t heard anything else about other staple characters we’ve grown to love (or hate) from 1993’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Sure, we’ve been introduced to Jason’s father who is “at odds with his son over Jason’s football career”, but that has pretty much been it. Until now.
There has been much talk about the tone for this movie and whether it will borrow the humorous side from the TV show. For many people, Bulk (Paul Schrier) and Skull (Jason Narvy) were the levity that the show needed from the typical “civilian activity, putty fight, battle” pattern each episode fell into.
So the question is: Will the characters of Bulk and Skull appear in the movie? The answer: No.
Sources tell us that in place of Bulk and Skull will be two mean girls that the rangers encounter. No word yet whether Schrier nor Narvy will make an appearance in the film.
