See the First Photo of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa in Power Rangers

She looks ready for world domination

Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.

The first photo of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa in the upcoming Power Rangers movie is finally here. Shot exclusively for People magazine, the image shows Banks fully embodying the alien witch nemesis of the mighty morphin’ teens.

The actress explained that her character’s look—which includes sharp metallic fingernails and some flashy headgear—is a new take on the villain from the 1993 television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. “It’s definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita Repulsa,” she told People. “We wanted to give her a back story that connects her to the new Rangers.”

 

Power Rangers is set to hit theaters in 2017.
