We don't know all that much about Lionsgate's upcoming reboot of Saban's Power Rangers but that change come next month. Jason David Frank, Mighty Morphin Power Ranger's Green (and eventual White) ranger took to Twitter to announce an appearance at San Diego Comic Con. The appearance is in association with Lionsgate and claims that there will be "media and a special appearance". Willl the media in question be our first look at the film?



After 10,000 years of imprisonment, the evil sorceress Rita Repulsa and her loyal minions are freed when astronauts on a routine mission in space accidentally open her dumpster prison on the Moon. Filled with rage, Rita decides to conquer the nearest planet: Earth. But her arch nemesis – the heroic sage Zordon – has been patiently waiting in preparation for this day. With the assistance of his wisecracking robotic sidekick Alpha 5, Zordon recruits a team of five ‘teenagers with attitude’ – Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy, and Trini - to receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams and defend the Earth as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Aided by giant robotic vehicles modeled after dinosaurs called Zords, the Power Rangers fight back the evil alien hordes of Rita Repulsa.

That guy was the coolest mother[frick]er around when I was a kid.
DaVinci31 - 6/15/2014, 11:23 AM
@MrBlackJack

was?
DaVinci31 - 6/15/2014, 11:24 AM
He still is . . .

TheAbaryMan369 - 6/15/2014, 11:26 AM
If they make the costumes less dorky... I'm all in.
MrBlackjack - 6/15/2014, 11:28 AM
@DaVinci

He was, until I saw my first Bill Nye the Science Guy video
KingPatel - 6/15/2014, 11:32 AM
I don't expect any footage, but wouldn't be surprised to see something about the film. Maybe the cast reveal? or costumes?

Hope this guy isn't involved in the film outside of maybe a cameo, haven't heard good things about him lately. I'd much rather see Austin St. John come back in some capacity, but to be perfectly honest, I'd prefer if no one from the past was involved, a fresh start to the franchise would be nice.

@KingPatel Eup he has been going crazy lately.

Also it is most likely about the big war at the end of the season because he is in that fight. If we get anything new it will be the cast reveal for the next season Dino Charge as they are finishing the casting process.
Comedian03 - 6/15/2014, 11:46 AM
He looks like a Backstreet Boys reject. The whole spikey hair and soul patch thing hasn't been in for a very long time.
MrSotoMan - 6/15/2014, 11:49 AM
They are probably going to talk about how excited they are for the movie, show a 1 minute teaser unveiling the logo, and MAYBE a costume shown of one of the Rangers, probably the helmet.
MrFridayNights - 6/15/2014, 11:50 AM
Michael Bay would be perfect for a Power Rangers movie lol explosions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JASON DAVID FRANK AS GOLDAR

Idk.. I always loved Jason best. Red Ranger all the way!
marvel72 - 6/15/2014, 12:03 PM
prediction time,this will be as bad as the tv show.
KidGoku - 6/15/2014, 12:05 PM
Probably not any footage. I'm really trying to get a chance to try out for the role of the Black Ranger. I'm black, in the age range to play a teenager in high school. I've been acting for years and also experienced in martial arts. I need this chance
BboiBlack - 6/15/2014, 12:09 PM
If michael bay made a power rangers movie, people would complain about explosions and stereotypes and thin plots and so forth. Fan will be fans.
captainireland - 6/15/2014, 12:10 PM
They hardly have footage already?! I'm cautiously optimistic about a reboot though. And I absolutely love how Jason David Frank still embraces the franchise. So cool to see he has such a passion for it. Can he just be in the reboot?! Maybe he can play Zordon! :P Hopefully the reboot takes some inspiration from the original series anyway. Here's the kind of stuff I'd like to see in it: http://davecsimpson.wordpress.com/2014/06/12/thoughts-and-ideas-about-the-power-rangers-reboot/

Ha....thats funny....thats pretty much the show in a nutshell.
MichaelPMZ - 6/15/2014, 12:25 PM
Unless they use Gobusters footage for the movie, there's nothing to show for the movie. Gobusters had leather suits like modern American superhero movies instead of the usual Sentai spandex. They're contractually required to adapt every Sentai show, but are skipping Gobusters for the dinosaurs themed Kyoryuger.
Inhuman - 6/15/2014, 12:26 PM
This makes me want to go back and have a Power Ranger marathon I swear lol
Inhuman - 6/15/2014, 12:26 PM
Green Ranger will always be my favorite Ranger
DylanTBest - 6/15/2014, 12:27 PM
I'm hoping the reboot isn't as corny as the show, and has JDF. Speaking of which, did that huge Legendary War thing air yet?
ManCalledSting - 6/15/2014, 12:32 PM
Inhuman: They're on netflix.
CyberBishop - 6/15/2014, 12:32 PM
I have met him three times at cons, he is a complete class act. He even took a pix of him and I "fighting" while I am wearing my stormtrooper armor. He donated a bunch of signed pictured to our charity as well.
Maxi91291 - 6/15/2014, 12:32 PM
Oh hell yes !
Inhuman - 6/15/2014, 12:33 PM
@mancalledsting

I don't have Netflix =/ Ill just stream it on the web. I have so many sites I know

I should get Netflix though because of the 5 Marvel shows coming soon as well as last season of Clone Wars
McGee - 6/15/2014, 12:42 PM
Is Michael Bay involved in this?

Because I'm gonna be pissed off if I can't bitch, whine and moan about him ruining my childhood again. >:(
LucasMend - 6/15/2014, 12:47 PM
Hmmm INTERESTING! Looking Forward to this.
CaptainHammer - 6/15/2014, 12:57 PM
This has some serious potential if done right.
Dedpool - 6/15/2014, 1:15 PM
Jason David Frank is the shit!!! Period!!! Love him best as White, Green and Black rangers (red never looked as good on him) and he's a badass fighter in real life too!! He better get some role in the reboot!!
GenerationX - 6/15/2014, 1:15 PM
Why are people thinking his tweet means that they will show footage? All it means is that he is going to be there. He goes to cons all the time. Stop getting worked up over nothing people

FastFlames - 6/15/2014, 1:32 PM
That guy has been like 4 different Raners over the decades. HE IS THE BEST MOTHER[frick]ER TO EVER GRACE THE POWER RANGERS! Long live JDF.
rage - 6/15/2014, 1:35 PM
I still think JDF would make a awesome Frank Castle (punisher ) for a tv series or a movie.
0megaDaGod - 6/15/2014, 1:38 PM
I'm so ready for this....

My top 3 favorite rangers of all time.

Gambit10 - 6/15/2014, 2:28 PM
My favorite transitioned many times. From Blue Ranger, to Green Ranger, to White Ranger, then Adam's Green Ranger in Zeo, and then when Gold Ranger appeared, he was my favorite of all-time.
Enphlieuwince - 6/15/2014, 2:37 PM
Yeah, I've always been a fan of Jason's first but Tommy is always a close second. That said, I don't think any of these guys should be involved if they expect a hit.
gordonh7 - 6/15/2014, 2:44 PM
If it is a reboot and it has Jason David Frank in it. Then how does it go. Tommy was not part of the original line up he later joined the series.
MisterNiceGuy - 6/15/2014, 3:01 PM
Reboot show or film?

I called it last year too. Pacific Rim will inspire all sorts of movies of this genre
GerMan - 6/15/2014, 3:06 PM
back then i saw the original power rangers movie at the theatre.
the special effects of the zords were awesome and the suits great but the story was lame (kind of michael bay´s transformers like) just like on the small screen.
if they´re gonna make a movie they should use the original dinozords and the dragonzord.
and the story? do we really need a story for power rangers? ;-))
