For awhile now, rumors of a live-action Captain Planet movie have been making their way around the interwebs, but it appears that Funny or Die (along with God-amongst-men Don Cheadle) has gotten the drop on any would-be Captain Planets out there. Wanna see what Don Cheadle looks like in full Captain Planet regalia, or what happens when Captain Planet decides to get drunk on his own environmental powers? Keep on reading for one of the best Funny or Die clips we’ve ever seen, my gentle Examiner readers…
If you’re a child of the 80’s, there’s a very good chance that you watched a fair amount of Captain Planet on Saturday mornings. The series– a poorly-animated but well-meaning thing that most people have forgotten ever existed– ran for several seasons back in the day, and recently rumors have been going around about Hollywood “rebooting” the Captain Planet series in a live-action movie. From the looks of the video on the left, Funny or Die (and, more specifically, Don Cheadle) has beat everyone to it.
Click the “Video” box over there on the left to see it for yourselves, but be forewarned that Funny or Die and Don Cheadle’s version of Captain Planet contains a few naughty words (and a few well-timed pelvic thrusts). You’re about to see the Planeteers (that was their name, wasn’t it?) summoning the Captain, only to discover– far too late– that he’s gone mad with power. Please, stop reading this “article” right now and click the video box: this clip might be the best thing we’ve seen all month.
