Ever since January 2008, when Wikipedia greased the rumor mills with hints of a possible Captain Planet live-action movie, we’ve been following along in hopeful expectation. Of course, everything out there makes our Magic 8 Ball point to “No”, but that hasn’t stopped some creative fans from shaking things up with Photoshop.
Early last month, an image surfaced showing what appeared to be a Captain Planet teaser poster hanging at Comic Con 2009. Some bastard even created a supposed screenshot from an upcoming trailer. Everything was quickly shot down when attendees at Comic Con cried foul and let the online world know that no such poster actually existed. Since then, we’ve heard the familiar grumblings from fans that they’d definitely be interested in a live-action version of the film — with some saying it should have happened well before G.I. Joe received the green light.
Seriously, in a time when even the Smurfs and Fraggle Rock are getting their own live-action feature makeover, doesn’t the world deserve some saving from a blue-skinned dude with green hair? We’re just sayin’.
