I'm trying something new this week - no idea how it will pan out. I'm posting smaller, off the cuff articles rather than trying to create an whole long post. Today's is inspired by another news article I saw on Bleeding Cool about Zak Synder directing a Justice League movie in 2018 wherein it was revealed that a Metal Men movie is in development.
this blog know I love robot characters, but I'm not wild about this news. I think my main objection is that the Metal Men strike me a the type of property that would be better suited for the Marvel Cinematic Universe rather than the current Grim and Gritty DC Movieverse.
Really, I could almost see the Metal Men working better as a Pixar/Dreamworks animated feature. Something with the bright zip of The Incredibles or Wreck It Ralph.
What I'm afraid we will get is a film where the Metal Men have been redesigned beyond recognition. If the movie is written by David Goyer, it's almost a sure bet they will all be wearing long leather dusters and the main villain will be some Euro-Disco reject.
the Retroist to read a fun write up of a Rat Pack Version of the Metal Men movie that never was (but would have been so Awesome if it had!)
Is that not a great idea or what?
