In a Power Rangers Movie mid credits scene, the teens are gathered in their detention hall and their teachers does a roll call. Whose name appears but….Tommy Oliver’s.
Should the film get a sequel we will see somebody take over from Jason David Frank’s as Tommy. But what do we think about them possibly being a woman??
I think it would be an interesting gender flip on the show. .Although we already seen a bad ass female in Rita, I think the fact she is human will really push the Rangers and their moral codes. Can they kill another human? Also I think a female Tommy should be bisexual and should try and seduce Trini. They’ve already opened the door slightly to Trini being queer so they should kick those doors wide open in the sequel.
With the rangers now facing an evil ranger, we could see how Zordon dealt with the same issue. This would be a perfect way to feature flashbacks of Zordon and Rita when they fell out. I loved that opening scene, more of that would be awesome.
Dacre Montgomery commented on the mystery over the Green Ranger’s identity and the possibility of it being a girl. “It’s left blank. It’s a cliff-hanger. Whoever you’re going to drop into that position — whether it’s a girl — it’s inevitably going to create drama. It’ll be interesting to drop that drama into it and see how we all relate to it and work with it.”
