Elizabeth Banks Will Play Rita Repulsa

Did you grow up in the ’90’s? Then, odds are, you’ve seen at least one episode of “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” If you haven’t, your childhood was definitely weak AF. Step your game up.

Anyway, for those who do know the show, and the character of Rita Repulsa: The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Elizabeth Banks will be playing the role in Saban’s upcoming “Power Rangers” film. Are you into the idea of the freaky girl from “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” playing her? Because frankly, I don’t think there’s a better choice out there. I would’ve never thought of it, myself, but once I heard her name, all I could think was, “that’s perfect.”

She brings a ton of credibility, and even more talent. She’ll be able to make the character sexy, funny, scary, and whatever else is needed of her. I don’t know how the rest of the film is going to turn out, but at least the villain will be top notch.

Now, we just have to find out who’s going to play Goldar.
