The Power Rangers sequel status is still up in the air, but that hasn't held back fans from offering up opinions about who the Green Ranger should be, including if she should be a man or a woman.
Rita Repulsa was made to be the Green Ranger in the recent reboot, and some have expressed interest in having a female occupy the role of Tommy Oliver in the hopeful sequel. The original Green Ranger Jason David Frank offered up his stance on the discussion to That Hashtag Show, something Saban trained him for.
"I was highly trained on this answer. Are you ready for this? I don't really like the answe: no comment."
While that is the official comment, he did elaborate on how he views the role.
"I don't like the answer, and it sounds really weird. I just wanna say one thing like I said before, which people can jump me about it, which is that for me, I said it before so I'll probably get calls, the Green Ranger's epic, and not just the Green Ranger because of who I was. I'll say it again it doesn't matter the skin, the color, the race, the girl, the females, whoever's going to be inside that spandex is going to kick major butt, but I have to refer back to my comment."
Frank also offered up a little piece of advice for whoever does don the costume in the future, advice that has worked well for him during his career.
"No matter who plays the character, I would give one piece of advice. Be yourself. Don't try to duplicate something else. That's the reason why I like doing Emissary in Transformers. I like doing Bloodshot for the Valiant universe because they're characters that haven't been played before."
Jason David Frank will be appearing at 2018's Power Morphicon, and you can purchase your membership packages on RegOnline. The official Power Rangers convention is set to begin on Friday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 19th, and will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Saban's Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
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.
