Don Cheadle Wrecks Green Havoc Again As “Captain Planet”

It was roughly a year ago when we saw actor Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2, Hotel Rwanda) go power mad as Captain Planet. Now, it appears that he’s returned with not only a snazzy blue suit, but also powers that have um..“branched out?”

Written and Directed by Charles Ingram and Nick Corirossi, the short also once again has Effen Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite, Crank) as Ma-Ti.

Look, I’m waiting with about the same excitement and caution on the actual live-action Captain Planet movie like the next 90’s kid. But I honestly wouldn’t mind if they just somehow based the movie on this short.

Besides, where else are you going to find Captain Planet swearing (this is slightly NSFW) and shooting beams with a laser guitar while dubstep blasts in the background?

Yeah, exactly.
