Barry Sonnenfeld to direct Comic Book Movie for Warner Bros?

Men in Black franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld revealed in a recent interview with CBM that he's currently in talks to direct a new comic book movie over at Warner Bros. Here's what the director had to say when he was asked about what he thinks of the recent trend of successful superhero movies and if there were any characters that he'd like to bring to the big screen...

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.

The only hint he gives about what project he'd be working on is that the comic hasn't been around since the 60's. It must be some obscure superhero or something. Do you have any ideas on what comic it might be? And comic you hope it will be? I'll be honest... I didn't read a lot of comics from the 60's.
