The identity of Power Rangers Beast Morphers‘ Gold Ranger has seemingly been revealed!
In a new photo from the set of Power Rangers Beast Morphers filming in New Zealand, fans can see Abraham Rodriguez, previously announced to play the character Nate, donning a gold sweatshirt next to a robot expected to be the Silver Ranger (following the same pattern as Power Rangers Beast Morphers‘ Super Sentai counterpart, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters).
Abraham appears next to the other core three Rangers (Red, Blue, and Yellow), portrayed by Rorrie Travis, Jasmeet Baduwalia, and Jackie Scislowski.
The photo would seemingly confirm that Nate, portrayed by Abraham Rodriguez, will be the Gold Ranger.
The photo would also seemingly confirm that the Silver Ranger, who will be a robot/non-humanoid character much like Zenowing from Power Rangers Dino Charge, will use the same robot suit as Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
In Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, the Silver Ranger was a robot named Beet J. Stag. In Power Rangers Beast Morphers, the same concept is likely to be retained where a Beast Bot takes on the role of the Silver Ranger.
At this time, not much else is known about Rodriguez’s character, Nate. He can be seen wearing glasses on set in the photo below, captured by Twitter user @theyispetty, but his relationship to the other three Rangers remains unknown at this time.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will have 22 episodes, and air on Nickelodeon in early 2019 (click here to recap).
Hasbro’s Power Rangers Beast Morphers toys will begin hitting store shelves in Spring 2019. Fans can check out the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below.
Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun.
The season also stars Liana Ramirez as Roxy, Colby Strong as Blaze, Cosme Flores as Ben, and Kristina Ho as Betty.
