Yes, One Of The Power Rangers Will Be Queer

In the new movie, she will be the first-ever openly gay protagonist in a superhero movie.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Power Rangers movie will have the Yellow Power Ranger, Trini - played by Becky G - experiencing what she first calls "boyfriend problems", but later speculates that it might be "girlfriend problems" instead.

The teenage superhero sensation from the '90s are back in Saban's Power Rangers, the reboot film Lionsgate and Project Almanac director Dean Israelite.

"She hasn't fully figured it out yet", he said.

Though superheroes that identify as LGBTQ appear in both Marvel Comics and the DC Universe, those type of storylines have not translated to the big screen until now. On April 5, you will be invited to discover the Power Rangers, a film that should please both old and new fans!

It sounds like Trini's sexuality isn't a major plot point in the movie, but the characters do discuss the topic onscreen. But when those characters are represented in movies, they are portrayed as straight.

The fantasy film, which was released in theaters on March 17, sees the character LeFou (Josh Gad) expressing romantic sentiments toward Gaston (Luke Evans).

"They really stepped up to the plate", he said.

"I think what's great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, 'That's OK'".

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers began in 1993, adapted from the Japanese original Super Sentai. In the TV show, none of the characters were queer or on the spectrum, but actor David Yost (who played Billy) was/is gay, and was subject to a degree of bullying and suspicion on set. Disney introduced its first openly gay character in the new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.
