The new Power Rangers reboot has everyone abuzz about one character: Rita Repulsa. Rita, who was originally portrayed by Japanese actress Machiko Soga, will be played by Elizabeth Banks in the new reboot. Banks describes the new Rita as "modern and edgy," and her look has some fans very excited. However, many have noted the character looks nothing like the original, and other fans are upset an Asian actress wasn't picked for the role.
