'Power Rangers' movie could result in sequelpalooza
It’s almost a year until the first Power Rangers movie hits theaters, but from the sound of it, it’ll be far from the last time the colorful crew is on the big screen.
In a conference call with analysts today, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said he has plans for a whole series of films based on the teen superheroes.
“We are really, really excited about the Power Rangers movie…We could see doing five or six or seven,” Feltheimer said, this according to Variety.
The movie, which features a group of relative newcomers as the Power Rangers as well as Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, follows this team as they use their newfound superpowers to save the world. Considering the current appetite for superhero movies and general awareness of the Power Rangers, the news of potential sequels shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, although the number of them is rather ambitious.
Power Rangers is slated to be in theaters March 24, 2017.
