Barry Sonnenfeld to helm film for WB based on ’60s comic book property?

With MEN IN BLACK 3 appearing to be quite a shockingly good little action film, a return to form for a middling franchise shall we say, director Barry Sonnenfeld appears to be finding a second wind in his directorial career.

The same man behind films like WILD WILD WEST, is, according to Comic Book Movie (and a hat tip to /Film), set to team with WB for a new film based on an old property. The director will helm a comic book film based on a book that hasn’t seen the light of day since the ‘60s. At this point, that’s all we know, so let the questioning commence.

I have no idea what this could possibly be. Does he mean that the book hasn’t been around since the ‘60s, or have we just not seen the character, at all, since then? Could this mean we’ll get someone like The Question, or Shazam? It has to be a DC property, since the two have been bunk mates for years now, but honestly, the options are limitless here. What do you think?
