DC Comics superhero Plastic Man is headed to the big screen!
Up-and-coming screenwriter Amanda Idoko will write the script for the comedic action-adventure flick for Warner Bros., THR reports.
Plastic Man’s true identity is Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, a “crook-turned-good guy. O’Brian was part of a gang, and during a botched heist is shot and — wouldn’t you know it — also doused with a chemical liquid. Left for dead by the gang, he awakens to find himself imbued with the power to shape-shift and stretch his body into almost anything thanks to being the most malleable man alive. O’Brian eventually reforms and becomes a police officer.”
The character, originally published by Quality Comics and later acquired by DC Comics, was a member of the Justice League and had his own cartoon series as well.
The project is still in the early stages and has no filmmaker attached yet, though it will reportedly stay true to the “light-hearted and even silly tones of the character.”
