Let's Fan-Cast the Gritty Power Rangers Reboot Coming in 2016

Children and grown-ups alike flocked to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in its first weekend of release, and now Hollywood is betting the the '90s nostalgia wave will last least two more years – on Wenesday, Lionsgate announced that its Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot will hit theaters on Jully 22, 2016.

The studio has signed the the writers of Thor, to produce a script off a story by Star Trek's Robert Orci. There are no plot details yet, but knowing that Lionsgate was the studio behind Ender's Game, The Hunger Games and I, Frankenstein, it's likely the Power Rangers movie will skew in the same dour, effects-driven direction.

So let's cast the thing, then, with the quality of actors who might be able to bring a gritty realness to this tale of five teenagers with attitude picked to defeat the evil Rita Repulsa. We're gong to abide by the same racial casting standards used in the first iteration of the Power Rangers squad. If it makes you uncomfortable, that's OK – that awkwardness is practically an integral part of Power Rangers at this point.

Sometimes people just have a bad day. And according to Donald Glover, that's what's to blame for his recent online rant.

On Monday, the former Community actor turned musician posted a series of troubling posts on Instagram. "I feel like I'm letting everyone down. I'm afraid people hate who I really am. I'm afraid I hate who I really am," he wrote. "I've been sick this year. This is the first time I've felt helpless."

But the actor now says he was merely venting. "That night, we had a show, and then afterwards, I had this moment of feeling like, 'What's the point? Why am I even here?' " Glover told PEOPLE exclusively Wednesday. "I just wanted to write down my feelings. I definitely was just expressing myself."
