Bryan Cranston is set appear in the new Power Rangers movie, and he's convinced that the film is unlike anything diehard fans saw in the original TV series. 

The Oscar nominee told the Huffington Post on Tuesday that the movie is “unrecognizable for the most part,” when compared to Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV show.

Cranston said: 

“This is as different a reimagining as the ‘Batman’ television series as it became the ‘Batman’ movie series. You can’t compare those two, and nor can you compare this movie version of the ‘Power Rangers’ to that television series."

Late last month, it was announced that Cranston would be joining the cast as Zardon—the giant, floating face who directs the Power Ranger's missions. For those not well-versed in the Power Rangers universe, Zordon is something of an erudite mentor to the group. He's also the genius who created them. 

The Power Rangers movie releases 2017, but there might actually be about five or six sequels.
