Warners, New Line and DC are working on a Plasticman movie

December 7th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Right. This is… unexpected.

With Shazam! coming next year and recent news that a Bluebeetle movie might be in the pipeline at DC/Warners, we never expected a… Plasticman movies!

But it looks like it’s being planned.

New The Mayor screenwriter Amanda Idoko will be on writing duties and the movie is set to be a comedy action/adventure for Warners/New Line, the same folk who are bringing us Shazam!

Plasticman is really Patrick “Eel” O’Brian in the comics, a former criminal who is a good guy after he was covered in toxic chemicals during a criminal adventure which, yup, now allows him to manipulate his body in any given way since it’s… plastic now.



Word is the will stick to the craziness of the comics, so it’s unclear just where or how he’ll fit into the DC Cinematic Universe but, given that he was once a member of the Justice League, we’d imagine it can be done.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
