Captain Planet

Just last month we found out that Cartoon Network and Transformers franchise producer Don Murphy and his Angry Filmworks production banner were teaming up for a live-action film adaptation of the cartoon series Captain Planet. Well, the turnaround on that project seems to be pretty damn quick as we have the first trailer where everyone's powers combine to summon Don Cheadle as the titular environmentally sound superhero. Of course, it looks like Captain Planet may have a bit of a dark side as he takes it upon himself to keep the planet green and healthy. You'll see what I mean in the trailer below!

Here's the trailer for Captain Planet courtesy of Funny or Die:

Okay, so obviously that wasn't a real trailer for the film, but that's some pretty hilarious stuff. It's great seeing someone like Don Cheadle, who has shown his dramatic side plenty of times, have fun with something like this (not to mention his great turn in the Ocean's 11 franchise). I wish some more big names would've signed up to play the Planeteers, but it's nice to see "Community" star Gillian Jacobs show up for the laughs, and Effren Ramirez (Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite) is quite funny as Ma-Ti harnessing the power of Heart. If anything, this should be a warning that no one should cross Captain Planet, or he'll turn you into a f*cking tree.
