As the Power Rangers movie reboot approaches its 2017 release, we've seen more and more of how the filmmakers are re-imagining and re-designing the series' iconic characters. From the Power Rangers, to their Zords, to villains like the Putties, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and Goldar, it's going to be a different Power Rangers experience than fans may be used to.
Now we may have a first look at another new take on a classic character: Zordon, as played by Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston.
That image comes from a Reddit post that supposedly comes from wireless mobile company Qualcomm's display at CES. The image is blurry, but it is supposedly of Cranston's Zordon in the Power Rangers' new command center. We here at Comicbook.com reached out to Bandai, Saban and Lionsgate for confirmation that this image is, in fact, Cranston's Zordon; we have yet to get a response from representatives.
The design has the brightly-lit alien aesthetic we've seen in so many other elements of the Power Rangers movie, with "Zordon" basically looking like a digitally distorted visage of Cranston. It's not much different than what Comicbook.com friend BossLogic did in one of his fan-made images of the new Zordon, and seems like a fine enough ode to the classic series.
