Oh boy, this is the best news ever.
I just read on darkhorizons.com that Barry Sonnenfeld (director of the Men in Black franchise) is attached to bring DC Comics’ Metal Men to the big screen.
I first read a Metal Men comic when I was about 10 years old. I loved the group dynamics within the team and the whole idea of robots built from a specific metal, with the personalities and properties of said metal.
There was the leader Gold, the beautiful Platinum, super strong Iron, Mercury who could flow, Lead and Tin. They were created by the scientist Dr. Magnus.
I am hoping the movie is set in the kitschy ’60s like the original comic, sort of like a DC Comics version of the X-Men First Class movie.
