“You know it’s funny because I develop Metal men with Warner Bros. âSonnenfeld explained. âWe are actively working on a treatment for this. To me, it’s not so much a superhero thing as it is a world-building thing. If you look at the work that I have done, let it be The Addams Family, Men in Black, Pushing Daisies, Schmigadoon !, Where A series of unfortunate events, it’s about creating a world. An unusual world, slightly quirky and quirky; that’s what I love to do. It is not specifically, necessarily a superhero, but even in Metal men, which I’m developing, it’s going to be a very special world. It’s a real world because I always like things to be based on reality, but slightly with a slant from that. It all started with The Addams Family which is both real but slightly pushed. “
