Following the character posters released this morning, a new Power Rangers photos has debuted online featuring Elizabeth Banks’ villain, Rita Repulsa, as she attempts to take on the Rangers one by one, with her first target being the Yellow Ranger, Trini, played by Becky G.
“Rita tries to make Trini feel like she’s the weakest link of the Power Rangers,” the singer tells EW. “And she feels it’s easiest to go for her. Rita’s the type to play a lot of mind games, and Trini’s [thinking], “Can I really overpower Rita Repulsa or can I not?”
The actress also confirmed that principal photography has wrapped on the movie but that some reshoots will be taking place soon. Check out the new photo in the gallery below!
