With the latest Men In Black proving a reasonable success, the rumour mill is starting up regarding what’s next for director Barry Sonnenfeld…
Could the Metal Men, a fairly obscure DC comic, be the next project he’s looking at? After all, Men In Black was also an little heard of comic book before he got his hands on it.
The Metal men (and one girl) are, we’re sorry, some of the more unlikely superheroes out there – intelligent robots with the ability to ‘morph’, each is made out of – and named after – a different metal, Gold, Iron, Mercury, Lead, Platinum and Tin.
They have enjoyed brief moments of celebrity in titles like Batman, Justice League and more recently in an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold ever since their creation in 1962.
However, despite Sonnenfeld’s form, we don’t think this is likely… but we’ve been wrong once (or twice – ed) before.
