    If Lionsgate is smart they use Captain America: The Winter Solider as model for the first sequel which odds will be an adaptation of "Green with Evil"
    Captain, in Order to build a better world, sometimes means tearing the old one down... And that makes enemies.

    If it turns a decent profit, there will be sequels. Many, many sequels. If not, then Power Rangers will go back to the same nebulous obscurity that Fantastic Four is now stuck in. Personally, I have high hopes for this movie. It's been a while since Power Rangers made a genuine effort to reinvent and modernize itself. Franchises like Star Wars have shown that it is possible to update the themes to the 21st century. I think Power Rangers has a much bigger battle ahead of it if they want to be a major franchise again, but I see no reason why it can't be done.

    I agree that it has a big battle ahead of it. Hoping the eventual trailers will swing the GA to see the movie. Really believe that Saban and Lionsgate want this to shift the view that the public has of PR. It has all the elements there to succeed. We just need a good movie from it.

    Also, there were some additional shoots taking place and someone was able to snap some good pictures of the Red practical suit. Looks much better than the initial CGI'd image they released!

    If they bring in proper Kamen Rider then we'll talk.

    I really don't know what you're saying here. Maybe there's some confusion about the meaning of "theme". Star Wars certainly didn't update it's themes (and there never was a need to update them)

    Oh good. I was afraid that a franchise being made into a film was just going to get one movie.

    Hold your horses there Lions Gate, lets see how well the first one does before we start thinking about sequels.
    When there is no enemy within the enemies outside cannot hurt you.

    Well, you can't argue with their ambition .

    I imagine the next sequel will probably include Tommy and do the Green Ranger storlyine, and maybe Zedd as well, though I'm curious if they'll get far enough to adapt the shift from MMPR to Zeo.

    Ditto. Hopefully this does well and opens up the Mech/super robot genre

    Remember back in the 90s when they tried Kamen Rider in the US?

    General consensus is that the sequel would be an adaptation of "Green With Evil". Though Rita using the Green Powers in this one have caused some fans to think they might skip to white ranger for Tommy. Which is dumb IMO.

    If the first is successful here's where they ought to plan it

    2: Adaptation of Green with Evil (tease Zedd)
    3. Lord Zedd
    4. Zeo (new cast?)

    Even then, I don't think it's as hard as people make it out to be. They'll fill seats with the name alone. If they actually genuinely care. It can skyrocket in no time. I know it has potential.

    If you guys want Kamen Rider, I'm down for an updated Kamen Rider Black. Kiva? W?

    Sounds cool and this franchise could be cool among those who grew up in the 90s.

    The costumes look great. If the rest of movie itself is as visually pleasing that alone will help make it a success. A good story would be even better.
