CASTING THE GRITTY 'CAPTAIN PLANET' MOVIE



So today it was announced that a Captain Planet movie is in the works - a live-action version of the no less than outstanding 90s edutainment cartoon. Now of course this is in essence ridiculous - BUT. What if rather than teenagers flying around in an utterly un-aerodynamic yellow jet with power rings that bind together to summon the world's greatest 'mullet'-ed superhero - we went with a Batman Begins style gritty reboot with adult stars? Oh, the casting decisions we could make...

  1. Johnny Dep as Ma-ti is all kinds of wrong.

  2. I'm not sure how big of a Capt Planet fan you are but the Planeteers are all teenagers, and the actors that you listed are beyond that age nor could they be passed as teenagers either.

    If I had my way, Rupert Grint would play Wheeler.

  3. tle003 - Read the opening paragraph again. Age accuracy was never my intention.

  4. The only character we agree on is Looten Plunder. Other than that, I'm not feeling this. Johnny Depp as Ma-Ti? Depp is almost fifty and Ma-Ti is like, a tween. All the selections are too old and none of them look like teenagers. If age accuracy was not an intention in this, what's the point of making a list?
