“I’ve never played a villain before,” said Banks. She additionally informed People that she looks forward to “world domination – and being unpredictable as a character.”

While Banks’ Rita doesn’t exactly look the character from the original show, her costume is actually a major upgrade in our opinion. Plus, could her green ensemble be foreshadowing a team-up with a certain Green Ranger?

The Power Rangers reboot hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
