Captain Planet was one of Powell’s favorite shows during his childhood but he told THR his version of the mulleted environmental avenger will be different. “I mean they’ve tried to make it into a superhero movie before, but they kind of did like an earnest take and ours is way more subversive and fun and like dark and irreverent,” he said.
