Given that the original Blue Ranger (Billy Cranston) was named after Bryan Cranston and he actually lead his voice talents to some of the enemies faced by the Ranger’s it’s almost logical that they would tap him to play floating head and order giver Zordon.
Emmy winner Bryan Cranston is also know for his role as Hal in Malcom in the Middle. A role that was starkly different from that of blue meth kingpin Walter White in AMC’s Breaking Bad. Cranston has also had small parts on a series of other geek friendly shows and movies such as: Babylon 5, X-Files, and The Flash to name a few.
This new teaser poster was also revealed by LionsGate a short while ago. It doesn’t give us much to go on, but it is a pretty picture nonetheless.
The Power Rangers movie is set to release March 24th of 2017. It will be a retelling of the origins of the titular heroes. The Red Ranger/Jason will be played by Dacre Montgomery, the Pink Ranger/Kimberly, will be played by Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler will play Billy/the Blue Ranger, Becky G. will play Trini/the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin will play the Black Ranger/Zack. We also know that Elizabeth Banks is Rita Repulsa.
