Leonardo DiCaprio wants to make a Captain Planet movie.

The actor and environmental advocate's production company, Appian Way, is reportedly teaming up with Paramount to resurrect the blue-skinned hero who struck fear into the hearts of environmental polluters everywhere.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Paramount is in talks for the rights to the 1990s cartoon series, and is reportedly eyeing screenwriter Jono Matt and Scream Queens star Glenn Powell to write the flick.

If the talks are successful, DiCaprio will produce the project, the industry newspaper said.

With Leo's powers combined, we may get a whole new Captain Planet.

For the uninitiated, Captain Planet was a 1992 cartoon about a group of teenagers recruited from around the world by Gaia, the Spirit of the Earth, to help protect the planet from sinister, super-villainish polluters.

The five kids are given magic rings which, when combined, bring forth the blue-skinned hero.
