Teh New Rita... Not Bad...

Swiped from some Tumblr somewhere, but no doubt swiped from some official source somewhere else. Here's your new Rita Repulsa (as played by Elizabeth Banks) from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot movie thing that's due next year.

On the one hand, I'm sort of glad they're not sticking with trying to recreate the old look of the character, which would've been a bit goofy for something that's supposed to be a little more mature and a little more expensive (for lack of a better term) than the original show. And in all honesty, she ain't that bad looking; more alien-ish than just a Japanese woman in a hokey outfit and I particularly like the color choice here... I'm guessing she'll be the Green Ranger in this flick?

(Seriously, though, that wouldn't be a bad idea and it's something that was teased in past fanfiction brainstorms years ago, but that's another story.)

On the other hand, if they're being this drastic in redesigning Rita, it does make me wonder how much of an overhaul the Rangers are going to get. But hey, so far, I'm liking what I see.
