Power Rangers features first openly gay screen superhero

20 March 2017, 09:38 | Winston Chapman

The new "Power Rangers" film, which was scheduled to hit theaters this week, will feature a gay protagonist - the first superhero movie to do so. In a "pivotal" scene in the movie, Trini will be struggling with what a fellow Ranger assumes are "boyfriend problems".

Trini has "girlfriend problems" in "Power Rangers". "She hasn't fully figured it out yet", director Dean Israelite explains.

Israelite added that the film will give Trini the support and space she needs around her sexual identity.

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

LGBT representation in superhero films has trailed that of comic books, where heroes and villains such as DC's Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Batwoman and Harley Quinn, as well as Marvel's Ice Man, are among high-profile examples of LGBT characters. "The film doesn't dwell on any of this, but our heroes are a truly diverse group of kids in more ways than one".

But when these characters are adapted to the big screen, they have all been portrayed as straight - albeit a few homoerotic lines from Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool. Actor RJ Cyler (Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl) made no explicit reference towards his character's place on the spectrum, but he has favorited and retweeted messages from fans making the point on Twitter prior to the movie's release.

This movie is sounding better and better by the minute.

Power Rangers may be based on an old property, but it's breaking new ground.

"They really stepped up to the plate", Yost told THR.

David Yost, who played the original Blue Power Ranger on the TV show and left after suffering anti-gay harassment while on set, has praised the move.
