Dear children of the ’80s,

Captain PlanetI heard a rumor last week that Warner Bros. studio had announced a live-action film version of the ’90s cartoon series Captain Planet and was planning to release it in late 2009.

Captain Planet, you say? Why, he’s our hero! (Wasn’t he gonna take pollution down to zero?)

Sadly, though, I must report that I then contacted the Warner folks (and their bros) and found out that this rumor is, in fact, "untrue."

I know, I know. I too am crushed. But before you get your superhero-tights in a bunch, consider this: perhaps by our powers combined we could petition them to reconsider?
