First Logo For POWER RANGERS Reboot Has A Nostalgic Feel; Plus Casting Update

The upcoming Power Rangers reboot has recently started to pick up some traction. The other day director Dean Israelite provided a quick update and now, the first logo has surfaced.

Today marked the first day of the 2015 Las Vegas Licensing Expo and while we've already seen more than a few goodies from Warner Bros.' upcoming superhero event Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, there are quite a few other upcoming films on display as well. The good folks at Collider managed to snap a photo of an early logo for Lionsgate's upcoming Power Rangers reboot and well, it's basically every Power Rangers logo ever, save for the logo used in the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series.

ICYMI, director Dean Israelite recently provided an update on the film, read about it HERE!

Check out the photo below and keep scrolling for a small casting update: 

With the reboot not arriving until January 13, 2017 at the earliest, it shouldn't be too surprising that casting has yet to begin. However, according to Heroic Hollywood, it looks when the process does kick off, Lionsgate will be looking at relatively unknown actors to play the actual Power Rangers as the studio wants them all to believably play characters in their late teens.

Considering the Power Rangers franchise has a long-running history of casting unknowns as the iconic Rangers, this really shouldn't come as a huge surprise to anyone invested in the property. However, if you were hoping to see popular fan-favorite picks such as Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), and/or Donald Glover (The Martian), amongst others, say "It's Morphin' Time," you may be a tad disappointed. 

The report also states that it's highly unlikely the upcoming movie will feature former actors from the popular '90s television series suiting up on film. Does this mean the movie will be a full-on reimagining that pays homage to the original series while moving in a different direction, or is the door still potentially open for former stars such as Austin St. JohnWalter JonesAmy Jo Johnson, and David Yost to make appearances? Still too early to say, but with the movie expected to start production later this year, expect to learn more very soon, possibly as early as next month's San Diego Comic-Con!

What do you guys make of all this? Sound off with your thoughts below!

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. A team of “five teenagers with attitude” — Jason, Zack, Kimberly, Billy and Trini — receive superpowers beyond their wildest dreams so they can defend the Earth as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
