Warner Bros. Will Bring DC's "Metal Men" to the Screen

by | April 5, 2007 | Comments

Ever heard of a comic book called "Metal Men"? Came out around 1962? From DC Comics? Nah, me neither, but it looks like someone over at Warner Bros. remembers these guys…

"X-Men" series producer Lauren Shuler Donner will oversee the "Metal Men" and their transformation from comic book characters to big-screen heroes. Apparently they’re a team of six robots, and each one has their own distinctive skills, powers, personalities, and … elements. (Gold, iron, lead, tin, mercury, and platinum, if you must know.) Created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru, the "Metal Men" act as a dysfunctional family as well as a futuristic crime-stopping unit. (So the movie will be "X-Men" meets "Robocop," maybe? If so, cool.)

Comic book author Geoff Johns is also attached on the creative side, as is "Mr. 3000" screenwriter Eric Champnella. No word yet on who’ll be directing … but I bet it’ll be someone with lots of experience in the field of CGI. What I wanna know is this: Will DC’s "Metal Men" make it to cinema screens before Marvel’s "Iron Man" does? Hmmmm…..
