Today’s Crackle panels at the Television Critics Association tour yielded some surprising film news. While promoting his animated series, SuperMansion—that’s Emmy-nominated SuperMansion to you—Bryan Cranston got to talking about his appearance in the new Power Rangers movie. And, crop tops and rattails aside, it sounds like it’s going to be amazing. What makes us say that? Well, we’ll have you know, we’re not the ones touting it—Cranston is.
The All The Way star will play Zordon in the new movie from Dean Israelite, which Cranston has high hopes for after having seen much of it. Cranston told the TCA he believes “this movie is actually gonna be a big deal. I’ve seen a lot of it, because I’m doing ADR on it. And it’s impressive. Dean Israelite really has a nice touch. As big and as powerful as Power Rangers could be, he has a nice touch to keep it grounded, and real. I think it’s gonna turn some heads, I really do.”
This isn’t the first time Cranston effused over the project: back in July, he said Israelite’s reboot was on par with Christopher Nolan’s reimagining of Batman.
