A '90s superhero could return thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio, and rock legend Chuck Berry celebrates his 90th birthday on Tuesday by announcing a new album.

Meanwhile, Melania Trump gets mocked via hashtag and President Barack Obama starts his post-White House job hunt.

Social Cues is your go-to guide to what's trending across Facebook and Twitter each morning. Here's what your friends and followers are talking about on social media Tuesday:

Captain Planet: Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! By his powers combined, DiCaprio is taking "Captain Planet," a 1990s cartoon superhero, from the small screen to the big one. The "Revenant" actor's Appian Way Productions is in talks for the rights to the environmental hero, according to Hollywood Reporter. DiCaprio would produce the film with Paramount, as part of his fight to reduce pollution. News of the superhero's imminent return was trending on Facebook.

Stephen Colbert: Social media is roaring with laughter after Obama's segment on the "Late Show with Stephen Colbert." In the skit, Colbert gives Obama advice on his next job in a mock interview as Randy, the rental car agent. "I did get the Nobel Peace Prize," Obama said.

Colbert asks back, "Oh really? What was that for?" Obama responds, "To be honest, I still don't know."

Melania Trump: Donald Trump's wife took up two trending-topic spots for her defense of the Republican presidential candidate, in the turbulent wake from his quips about groping women. Her name was trending on Facebook, as was the hashtag #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt. She is blaming former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush for encouraging Trump to make the remarks back in 2005. Twitter mocked her with the hashtag, offering various scenarios with Bush as instigator.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: The nominees are in for 2017's induction ceremony. Pearl Jam became the first band to trend on Twitter after nominees were announced Tuesday. It's joined among nominees by such names as Journey, Tupac Shakur, Janet Jackson and Jane's Addiction.

Chuck Berry: It's back to the future for Berry. On the rock n' roll legend's 90th birthday, Berry announced that he will release a new album for the first time in 38 years. The album, titled "Chuck," is expected to come out in 2017. The announcement trended on Twitter, along with happy birthday wishes for the entertainer.
