'Metal Men' movie

Yeah, I know what you're thinking: Not another comic book movie! But I must confess to having very fond memories of Metal Men, an obscure DC Comic of the '60s that evidently has acquired a fervent cult following. It's been years -- well, OK, decades -- since I've glanced at an issue. But I remember the robotic heroes as being among the very few DC characters of the time who seemed as complex and compelling as the dysfunctional superheroes in Marvel titles. So the prospect of a film version strikes me as, at the very least, promising. I mean, how could you not look forward to a movie that may feature the sexiest fembot since Maria of Metropolis?
