    Okay, so Hollywood, what I want you do to with DiCaprio, is to take the evil rich guy character he played in Django, and change nothing but his name. And, boom, you have Looten Plunder.

    You all know I am right.

    Oh, but if he isn't available you can always hire Christopher Walken to play the role. I mean, he has already played the role, when he was in Batman Returns.

    Oh, and Danny DeVito as Hoogish Greedy. Charlize Theron as Doctor Blight...

    I think it'd be pretty wild if we got a Captain Planet movie that does a better job with the various source material then the majority of MCU sludge.

    Well, naturally he needs to be Captain Planet. Nobody could possibly object to that casting.

    I would argue, that the Captain Planet cartoon is better than most of the recent MCU sludge. So, if they just follow that formula, it should be an easy to match the MCU, being just how low the bar has been set. Oh, and not just for the MCU, but for superhero movies in general these days.

    Although, personally, I would love to see a different take on Captain Planet. I would love to see the canceled Captain Planet movie, get done.

    Capt Planet is so environmental I'm surprised James Cameron didn't grab it to adapt.

    If he's willing to do it seriously, and not as a joke.

    Though I wonder whether Leonardo DiCaprio himself wants to have the hero's role.

    Nah, Captain Planet doesn't have enough ocean for James Cameron.
