The ongoing Plastic Man movie tease continues, but this time with a twist: The man in question might be a woman.
Entertainment industry newspaper Variety reported on Dec. 4 that Warner Bros. and DC Films have hired writer Cat Vasko to write a Plastic Man movie as "a female-led action adventure." Other online sources have taken this to mean the title character will be a woman instead of a man.
The Variety article also said that DC execs Walter Hamada and Chantal Nong "are overseeing for the studio as it shifts the focus of the two-year-old project." That's a reference to the December 2018 announcement that a Plastic Man movie was in development, with screenwriter Amanda Idoko writing a "comedic, action-driven script."
When contacted by Plastics News this week, a DC Comics rep only said that the project was in "early development."
Vasko's comics-adjacent credits include working with Margot Robbie — who's played DC character Harley Quinn in two films — and an adaptation of the popular comic Lumberjanes.
