Dean Israelite, director of the newPower Rangersmovie, explained the final scene of the movies.

After the Power Rangers group defeats Rita Repulsa, a mid-credits scene plays. In the final scene, Tommy, who would become the Green Ranger, has escaped from detention. A green jacketsits on an empty chair as the detention supervisor calls out his name. Then an empty school hallway is seen and explosion goes off. Israelite spoke with EW.com about the final scene and its possible implications where a sequel is concerned. After Israelite admitted that the final scene was a tease for a sequel, hespoke about what the scene said about the new Green Ranger.

"We thought about the fact that the movie is an updated version of the show, which was teenagers with attitude, so [the tease is saying] if you thinktheseteenagers have attitude, wait 'til you see Tommy. He brings it in bucketloads. That's what this scene is trying to hint at," said Israelite. "I think the end credits scene is entertaining for non-fans and fans in that you kind of understand that there is someone who isn't there that's really important, and what does that all mean? I agree that it's the one thing in the movie that is so much more enjoyable if you're [already] a fan, but I think that's really typical of movies that are based on pre-existing content. I find I always wait for the end credits scene in Marvel movies, and if I'm not familiar with the [franchise]I really have no idea what just happened, but I get it. It's part of the conceit of this kind of movie."
