Barry Sonnenfeld to Direct a Comic Book Movie?

I’m banking on a lackluster result quality wise, but a lot of people seem excited to go back in time with the next installment of the Men in Black franchise… perhaps to a time when the Men in Black franchise was worth getting excited about. Still,  I offer proper respect to the first film and the look of the second film, and a lot of that credit goes to Barry Sonnenfeld, who is apparently in talks with Warner Brothers to do a comic book movie, this according to, well, him, by way of

“You know, I’m talking to Warner Bros. about doing a franchise based on a comic that hasn’t been around since the 60s. But it’s too early to talk about it. But possibly, yes.”

You hear that? Warners is making a Herbie Popnecker movie! Or maybe, maybe Brain Boy: The Cinema Film! Or Mercury Man! One of them, all of them, none of them, it could be a public domain character, not an old DC character, so the choices (when you follow the parameters Sonnenfeld laid out) are endless and awful. Come on Warners, can this and give us a Flash or a Wonder Woman movie!
