(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if don’t want to know about the post-credit scene in Saban’s “Power Rangers”)
“Power Rangers” premiered Wednesday night in Los Angeles and TheWrap got a sneak peek at the movie’s post-credit scene — specifically a mid-credit scene that teases things to come.
After the film’s climatic battle, where the five Rangers manage to form Megazord and defeat both Goldar and villain Rita Repulsa, the film ends with most of the teenagers returning to Saturday detention class where they all met in the beginning of the film à la “The Breakfast Club.”
As our heroes are settling in, the teacher running the detention class calls out Tommy Oliver’s name. While Tommy can’t be seen, the camera cuts to a green jacket at an empty desk.
For non-fans, Tommy Oliver ends up being the Green Power Ranger — which Rita Repulsa was at the beginning of the film, before she turned on the Rangers.
Tommy Oliver’s name being called in the mid-credits scene strongly suggests that he will be involved in the “Power Rangers” sequel.
“Power Rangers” retells the story of the TV show’s first season back in 1993, with five teens from Angel Grove being summoned by the mysterious Zordon (Bryan Cranston) to become the Power Rangers and take on his former ally-turned-villain, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks).
Dean Israelite directed the film from a screenplay by John Gatins, with “Power Rangers” creator Haim Saban producing with Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Brian Casentini. The film has received mixed reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with current scoring at 48 percent.
“Power Rangers” hits theaters March 24.
