A few weeks ago Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld teased that he was in talks to make a movie based on a classic 1960s comic. And now we know — Sonnenfeld is making The Metal Men, based on the zany DC Comics property.
Vulture broke the news that Warner Bros. is hot to have Sonnenfeld bring the sixties comic about a team of metal crime-fighters to the big screen. The movie (if it follows the comics) will feature six robots each made out of a different material: gold, iron, lead, mercury and platinum. And their frequently kind of insane creator, Will Magnus. Would you watch a team metal robot movie? Or is the concept too dated and Silver Age to work for today's audiences?
