Another day, another beautiful work of art made us want to make a film that doesn’t exist. This time the famous graphic designer BossLogic gave us a poster for an imaginary film called Captain Planet with magical elementary rings that resemble the spirit of infinity that Thanos used in the Avengers : A war with no end.
With the image, Boss Logic wrote a signature that should be familiar to anyone of a certain age and said: By our forces, united… Legendary.
POWERFUL: The captain of the planet, the author of the films, calls it dark, subversive and funny.
The poster shows the hand of a mysterious figure wearing gloves, probably titled Captain of the Planet, in his characteristic red costume, with a glowing yellow planet on his chest. The character in the TV series may be blue in skin, but we don’t know if he has a version of the artist, with the addition of blue to something resembling an all-night superhero costume, unlike the chic red bikini suit that Captain Planet shows in the series.
In the foreground of the poster, in gloves, the captain of the planet is taken in hand, decorated with red and gold ornaments and the emblem of the Golden Planet. His fist shows five elementary rings – earth, fire, wind, water and heart. The design is reminiscent of the almighty Gaunt of Infinity from Marvel Cinematic Universe, whose rings shine like endless stones.
Cartoon Captain Planet and Planetards begins when Gaia, the spirit of the planet, brings together a team of various planets capable of joining forces to summon an elementary warrior in the form of a superhero Captain Planet. It works with the planets to protect the Earth from pollution from criminals and bad guys. According to the theme song of the show, Captain Planet will reduce pollution to zero by defeating bad guys like Hoggish Greed, Dr. Blithe and Luten Plander.
The series was co-created by media magnate Ted Turner, a well-known environmental activist, and each episode was followed by at least one planetarium alarm video, often linked to the story, which talked extensively about ecological and other social and political issues, and about how viewers can contribute and be part of the solution, rather than pollution.
Captain Planet and Planetards worked on TBS from 1990 to 1996 and represented the voices of David Coburn, Levar Burton, Joey Dedio, Cat Sushi, Janice Caway, Scott Menville, Whoopi Goldberg and Margot Kidder. The series has produced a range of characters, toys and video games and has even led to the creation of an environmental organisation, the Captain Planet Foundation.
Over the years many attempts have been made to adapt the show and bring Captain Planet and his planets to the big screen. They contain a dark and grainy image of the post-apocalyptic world, which even reached the stage of conception before it was abandoned. In October 2016 it was reported that Paramount Pictures and Appian Way Leonardo DiCaprio tried to develop a new film and negotiated with Johno Matt and Glenn Powell to write the script. Unfortunately nothing has been done yet, but with climate change and environmental issues at the forefront, this would be the perfect moment for the film Captain Planet.
If the film is ever shot, they can do much worse than with the BossLogic poster design. This came from BossLogic.
