After the rather polarizing reveal of Rita, the question of when we would see the new Ranger costumes wasn't far behind. We didn't have to wait long. Per an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, the new, high-tech Power Rangers are here! Check out the updated costumes below.

Although it's a radical departure from the spandex, and even latex armor of the 1995 movie, the Zyuranger influence is still there: The diamonds in the middle of the chest, the prehistoric animal helmets and even the power coins on the abdomen call back to some very basic design elements from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers we all know and love.

However, as some have pointed out, it seems heavily inspired by Iron Man, with some elements related to Tron and Guyver thrown in as well. (And I swear the abdomen armor is lifted directly from the batsuit in 2005's Batman Begins.) I suppose such a high-tech update isn't so surprising—Actually it's very much expected. Regardless, there's little doubt the new look will be polarizing to fans as well.

What do you think of the new Ranger designs? Is it a adequate call back to the original Zyuranger suits used for Power Rangers? Or do they trail too far from the original? Let us know your thoughts below!

I think the suit designs are awesome; you can really see the inspiration they took from those mentioned films. I hope they took inspiration from those films and used it in other areas of the movie as well.

Honestly had no idea what they were going to make the ranger suits look like, but wasn't expecting much. That being said, they look pretty good. It's nothing amazing, but I at least know they're power rangers. No way anyone could see at Elizabeth Banks with no knowledge of the upcoming movie or her role and know she was supposed to be Rita.
