Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) Movie To Feature First Openly Gay & Autistic Superheroes!

The movement for inclusion and representation of all types of people continues to make waves and break new ground. This time around the frontier moves beyond the superhero/action adventure genre in the upcoming Power Rangers movie.

Yep, one of the Power Rangers will become cinema’s first openly gay superhero, and another will be on the autism spectrum!

The news broke earlier today, much to the surprise of fans and moviegoers everywhere. “Trini Kwan,” the Yellow Ranger,  portrayed by Becky G., will apparently be a lesbian in the film, but a fledgling one, meaning she is just coming to realize and accept her sexual orientation. Meanwhile, “Billy Cranston,” the Blue Ranger, played by RJ Cyler is on the autism spectrum. This definitely falls in line with the film’s motif of the Rangers being outcasts and different in high school.

Power Rangers is breaking down a barrier no superhero movie has before. The Lionsgate reboot of the ’90s children’s TV show is the first big-budget superhero movie to feature an LGBT protagonist.

During Power Rangers‘ second act, there’s a scene in which the titular heroes learn that the Yellow Ranger, Trini (Becky G), is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, with one character assuming she’s having “boyfriend problems,” and soon realizing that perhaps she’s actually having “girlfriend problems.” It’s a small moment, but one director Dean Israelite calls “pivotal” for the entire film.

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Israelite tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”

Writer, Actor, & Absolutely Amazing! We’ve Got Nothing But LOVE For Alex Jante!

alex jante

It is no secret that we at HeyMikeyATL love our web series, and more importantly web stars! The flare, performances, and risque world these budding actors have introduced us to is nothing short of addictive. By now, you might feel as if you know all there is to know about web stars. Perhaps you think there’s a simple formula to them– face, body, sex scenes, rinse and repeat–but you would be wrong. Especially when it comes Alex Jante, a true gem.

Alex  Jante is not your average guy, let alone web star.

This amazing young man is also an actor, writer, author and one of the stars of Signal 23 TV’s hit web series, Steel River: When We Were Young!

As you may already know, Steel River: When We Were Young is a prequel to Signal 23 TV’s flagship series, Steel River. Alex portrays “Will” a straight laced young man on the cusp of adulthood, who dreams of having a better life. Will also struggles with his sexuality, not knowing where his feelings end or begin when it comes to his best friend, Addison(Travis Demetri). “Will is a very passionate and loyal person in my opinion and perspective…he is a person who is really engaged in his friendship with Addison…he is cool and he knows about the other characters, but his loyalty really lies with Addison.” Interestingly, unlike most of the characters in the series, Will seems to be almost repulsed by his same sex attractions as evidenced by his face in key scenes. “So Will is the character that is very much like I said loyal to Addison up to the point that I believe he realizes Addison is struggling with his sexuality and because of who he is he wants his friend to be comfortable around him…so in that he becomes a little bit more affectionate and endearing and find himself in the head space of knowing he has love for Addison, but struggling with wondering is he in love with him just to be comfortable…I feel like Will is the type of person where if you were to be gay he is the person you would actually want to be with. For him it’s not necessarily the idea of a gay or straight struggle, just a relationship with Addison…”

Tyson Anthony’s About Him: Freshman Year is already setting itself up to be a mega-hit?

How? With a super trailer that would make any of the Love & Hip-Hop previews blush! As we have mentioned in previous posts, Brandon Karson is BACK as “Damien,” along with Rahim Brazil as “Kendall,” (“Hey cuzzo!”) and a few new handsome faces that have us all going gaga!

The second season of the series is set in Damien’s first year of college and it looks anything, but typical. Damien is out on his own away from Vince and his big brother, Marion, but that does not mean he is out of trouble! The super trailer is going to leave you wanting to see more, know more, and of course binge watch these episodes like a new Netflix Marvel series! Check it out below!

In the words of a girl stuck in the nineties, “Aww sookie, sookie now!” Tyson Anthony and Bawn TV  really are a match made in heaven. If this series is anything like Tyson’s others (Entercourse, Raising Eli, Pharm: The Seriesthen we already know we will truly be entertained. The cast looks amazing, Brandon and Rahim are good in just about anything together–their chemistry and brotherhood on and off screen is admirable. Desmond Fletcher is a welcomed addition to the cast. We loved him in Pharm and on Raising Eli. He definitely has the “skills” to keep us tuned in.

Flash forward to Entercourse: Rocky Love Ballad,  a short film to tide us over until Season 2; and we find that Rocky has left for a month to help his grandmother out and Miles has opted to “do his own thing.” Meanwhile, Drew’s questioning of his sexuality has grown to curiosity and his begun to explore gay dating apps. He meets a younger guy, Jackson (Neal Robinson), who very well may prove to be more than he bargained for.
