Glen Powell Offers Update on CAPTAIN PLANET Movie Saying It’s Still in the Works and He’s Optimistic About the Project — GeekTyrant

Eight years ago, we announced that Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, was working on film adaptation of the classic comic Captain Planet.

Hollywood sweetheart Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick, Anyone But You) was attached from the start as a writer on the project, and is expected to star as well. Powell has given updates on the project over the years, and now he is bringing us yet another one, still as optimistic as ever.

The actor told Yahoo!: “Captain Planet is definitely something I’m incredibly passionate about. Leonardo DiCaprio and I have been putting that together for several years.

“With the recent changes over at Warner Bros., we’re just trying to figure out how the pieces will fall. It’s an environmental superhero, so it’s not necessarily part of DC — it exists outside of that world.

“At the same time, I think the world has never needed an environmental superhero more! So I think it tonally fits in with everything that James Gunn and Peter Safran are doing at DC and Leo and I are very optimistic that we can make something happen. I’d love to play Captain Planet — that’d be sick.”

It’s rumored that this take on the animated series was going to be set “years after the adventures of the show, with the Captain now a washed up hasbeen who needs the kids more than they need him.”

The DC lineup doesn’t seem to have Captain Planet as part of its plan, but it could always act like The Batman, and be its own individualized property.

Are you looking forward to the future of a Captain Planet movie?
