Ranger Nation, it has been quite an eventful weekend in the land of Power Rangers.
The hearts of fans have been racing a mile a minute. Twitter has erupted, and as we all know nothing good ever comes from Twitter erupting. Rumors broke about Jonathan Entwistle possibly leaving the upcoming Power Rangers movie, and everyone lost their minds.
The Tweet That Sparked The Power Rangers Flame
Popular Power Rangers leaker, Jin From State Farm tweeted about rumors he’s hearing about Jonathan Entwistle possibly leaving the upcoming film.
If the initial tweet wasn’t enough to worry Rangers fans, Jonathan Entwistle’s updated Twitter bio got the job done. Days after Entwistle updated it possibly revealing the movie’s title to be “The Power Rangers”, he updated it again completely removing “The Power Rangers” along with “Fred & Ginger”.
The sudden retraction of the titles raised eyebrows all across the Ranger Nation. Fans have so many questions waiting to be answered. Did Jonathan Entwistle leave? Is the movie canceled or delayed? We’re not sure completely certain yet, however, it’s quite probable that Entwistle simply removed both of his upcoming projects from his Twitter bio to keep the attention on his completed works, The End Of The F***ing World, and I Am Not Okay With This.
It’s worth reiterating that Fred & Ginger was also removed, yet he’s currently working on that project.
Beware Of Fake News
While we’re here, please be wary of opportunists spreading fake news. All we know for certain are the facts being that Jonathan Entwistle removed the film from his Twitter Bio and that the new Power Rangers Universe is coming to Netflix as far as we know. There have been no official reports of Jonathan Entwistle leaving Power Rangers.
What’s Really Going On?
I was shocked and concerned as everyone else until I gathered my thoughts. Entwistle first added “The Power Rangers” to his Twitter bio on Wednesday, May 11th but removed it early today, Saturday, May 14th. I find it very unlikely that Entwistle decided to abandon the film within that span of three days after giving a subtle indication of the film’s progress by revealing the possible title of the movie. If Entwistle left, we would’ve heard about it by now, news about directors leaving films usually break instantaneously.
While I understand that this may be a cause for concern amongst Rangers fans, it’s too early to worry about that. The second half of Dino Fury has not been released yet and we’re still a year away from the exciting 30th anniversary that is guaranteed to deliver a few “morphinomenal” surprises.
While we wait, Jonathan Entwhistle can’t stand idly by. He’s still a filmmaker working on other upcoming productions including Hello Tomorrow! for Apple TV Plus, and Warner’s reboot of The Lost Boys.
