During a post-credits scene, the character Tommy Oliver is teased but never seen. In “Power Rangers” lore, Tommy is the Green Ranger, who starts as an enemy of the team, but later becomes an ally.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Dacre Montgomery, who plays Red Ranger Jason Scott, said there has been discussion amongst the cast of a Green Ranger gender swap.

“A lot of the cast and I have discussed that we think it should be a girl,” he said. “It makes it even: three girls, three boys. It’s left blank. It’s a cliff-hanger. Whoever you’re going to drop into that position — whether it’s a girl — it’s inevitably going to create drama. It’ll be interesting to drop that drama into it and see how we all relate to it and work with it.”
