This isn’t the first time we’ve heard talk of a live-action Captain Planet movie: Sony was originally planning to bring the environmentalist superhero to the big screen, but now that the rights have lapsed, Paramount is in talks to snag them with a little help from real-life environmentalist superhero Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor is teaming up with Scream Queens star Glen Powell to develop a movie based on the ’90s cartoon series, but unlike other recent nostalgia cash-ins, this one has a positive message behind it.

'Captain Planet and the Planeteers' was a mildly popular, environmentally-friendly cartoon that ran from 1990 through 1996. And like so many childhood favorites it is being shopped around as a possible new movie franchise. Sony has taken the bait, and are working on turning the cartoon into a feature length film.
