Power Rangers Follows Beauty & the Beast with First Openly Gay Movie Superhero

The moment occurs midway through the film, when one character asks yellow power ranger Trini (Becky G) if she's having "boyfriend problems".

However, Hollywood still has a long ways to go - as evidenced by the fact that the mere mention of a female character's "girlfriend" in a superhero movie counts as a major step forward for LGBT inclusivity.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter ahead of the film's release at the end of this week, Israelite said: "For Trini, really she's questioning a lot about who she is. She hasn't fully figured it out yet", director Dean Israelite explains. And I feel like the cast is so diverse in so many ways, the colors of our skins and where we come from.

The new "Power Rangers" reboot is morphing the superhero movie industry with the inclusion of an LGBT protagonist. 'I think so many people in the LGBTQI community are going to be excited to see that representation'.

Together, they find themselves in position as the newest generation of Power Rangers sent to defeat the powerful witch and former Green Ranger, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). On April 5, you will be invited to discover the Power Rangers, a film that should please both old and new fans!
