DC Comics and BOOM! Studios have been collaborating a great deal lately, but one of their most popular collaborations has hit the skids with scheduling, and evidently, the company has decided to put it on ice.
According to Bleeding Cool, issues 5 and 6 of Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers have been shelved, though it seems they will be offered again at some point down the line. The issues were currently scheduled for a May and June release, and neither company has said why the issues solicitation dates were pulled. The first three issues came out on time, but issue four hit a two month gap. Issue #5 was scheduled for May 17, and issue #6 has an August date attached. Who knows if that will still be the case when it returns, but hopefully it all gets worked out soon, as fans don't want to see it completely cancelled before the story can resolve.
The description for issue #5 is included below.
The Justice League and the Power Rangers have arrived in the Rangers' home dimension, but the heroes of these two worlds are too late to prevent Angel Grove's shocking fate. With the Earth now on the chopping block, can these teams come together to undo the damage wrought by Zedd and Brainiac? Co-published with BOOM! Studios.
The action-packed, coming of age feature film Saban's Power Rangers will morph onto Digital HD June 13 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital HD), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD and On Demand June 27 from Lionsgate. As part of the 24-year-old global phenomenon and based on the five Rangers from the original TV series, "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,", the reimagined movie features a modern generation of Rangers including Dacre Montgomery (TV's "Stranger Things") as Jason the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, and Becky G. (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, as they attempt to stop the evil and unpredictable Rita Repulsa (played by Elizabeth Banks, The Hunger Games Franchise) from destroying their city…and ultimately the world. Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") as Zordon, and Bill Hader (Finding Dory) as Alpha 5 train the Rangers to morph and master their powers as a united team.
The Saban's Power Rangers DVD will include exclusive audio commentary with director Dean Israelite and writer John Gatins, and deleted/alternate/extended scenes and outtakes. Saban's Power Rangers will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD for the suggested retail price of $42.99, $39.99, and $29.95, respectively.
Story by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless and Michele Mulroney & Kieran Mulroney. Screenplay by John Gatins. Directed by Dean Israelite.
