Captain Planet, our hero, has a movie in the works

Early '90s cartoon "Captain Planet and the Planeteers" is going the way of "The Smurfs" and getting a belated big screen adaptation.

According to reports, Sony Pictures is in final negotiations to obtain rights for a film version of the cheesy animated series that aimed to teach kids about taking care of the environment.

In the cartoon, Captain Planet was an Eco-friendly superhero who could be summoned by five adolescents from around the world. The group of teens were bestowed with magical rings that help them stop polluters, but they called in Captain "The Power is Yours" Planet to help with problems they couldn't handle.

Mark Gordon, Don Murphy and Susan Montford are on board to produce the project, but details on how Sony plans to adapt the cartoon are slim. The general Internet consensus is pretty clear though: Get Don Cheadle in this, or it's not going to work.

    Captain Planet is an anti-american, anti-capitalism, anti-white, leftist propaganda cartoon designed to try to influence children, that's all. If you don't believe it, try looking at the storylines it has had. Consistently the "bad guy" in the movie is a white capitalist (usually American) who cares little for the planet and somehow dumps more pollution than his facility could legitimately generate. A movie? Sounds like it would be as scientifically accurate as that fairly acted but poorly conceived "The Day After Tomorrow".
