TOP GUN: MAVERICK Star Glen Powell Updates On CAPTAIN PLANET Movie; Still Hopes To Play The Hero

We haven't heard a thing about this one for several years, but Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell has now confirmed that a live-action Captain Planet movie is still in development...

Back in 2016, we got word that a live-action Captain Planet movie was in development at Paramount Pictures and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way, with Jono Matt and Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell enlisted to write the script.

Updates have been pretty much non-existent since, but Powell has now confirmed that the project is still in the works, and he's very keen to play the environmentalist hero of the title!

"Captain Planet is definitely something I'm incredibly passionate about," he tells Yahoo! "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."

Some of you might be a bit young to remember Captain Planet, but the cartoon was very popular when it ran from 1990 to 1992, and still maintains a bit of a following. The show focused on five teens from around the globe who could control the elements, and once their powers were combined they were able to summon Captain Planet - a superhero who battled against pollution in an effort to cleanse the environment.

Apparently, Powell and Matt's take would 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."
