Even for many hardcore comic book fans, The Metal Men are still a little known/obscure team. The average joe wouldn't know what the hell this movie is about, and I doubt they'd care enough to go out and see it in the theater... Stick to what people know, DC!
However, I think it could make for a GREAT animated flick.

of course it would work with the right script. i doubt it will be an epic movie that is over 2 hours. more like an hour and a half at best. and DC didnt green light this, WB did. DC has no say over what movies WB brings out. i say take the chance.
Barry Sonnenfeld peaked with Men In Black in 1997. Since then it's been pretty downhill; two MIB sequels that were crappy to mediocre, RV (ugh), Big Trouble (9/11 turned that film into a disaster) and then there's Wild Wild West...the crowning turd in the water pipe!
I thought the Metal Men were fun when I was younger...but there was no Transformers then, and I got past the age of ten. I mean, if DC thinks there is real potential as a live action film, then get ready for that Wonder Twins film as well!

MIB 3 was pretty good and has a better score on imdb versus MIB. and its not dc, but WB. WB thinks they can make this into a fun movie. Metal Men is still a great concept and their last maxi series was fantastic. in case any of you didnt read it.
