Umberto Gonzalez, founder and editor in chief of Heroic Hollywood, has announced that the villain of the film will be none other than Rita Repulsa, who has been described to him by inside sources with the following description:
“A huntress. A striking, yet subtly alien-looking woman. She carries a metallic staff topped with a distinctive crescent shape. Advances with a soldier’s confidence, guided by some sort of compass... Her staff is actually a device of immense power. She points it at the ground. Heads emerge, built layer upon layer like 3-D printing, made from the earth itself... The staff’s technology grants her the ability to create humanoid figures, soulless and robotic.”
In case you don't remember or don't know Rita Repulsa from the show, here's a picture of the original to jog your memory:
Zordon is also confirmed to appear in the film as well! The character is complete with an insider description of the film's direction of the character for the adaptation and everything!
“Though alien, he looks like a man in his 50s. Sinewy and strong, as if carved from some root that refused to die. A being of integrity and iron will.”
While we can't be sure that this will be set in stone as the final prologue to the film, it appears as though Ms. Repulsa will be revealed during the film's opening prologue battling the Power Rangers that existed all the way back in the cretaceous time period when the last of the dinosaurs were roaming the Earth, where Zordon will actually be the Red Ranger of the time.
