And with Iron Man and all the superhero hullabaloo, it's no wonder the studio is hot for this flick. Plus, the success of Captain America proved that the public can still get into World War II retro action. But who should write and direct? Sources say Disney hasn't pegged that down just yet.

Don't do it, Disney. The original has aged very well and is still one of the best pure comic book movies ever made. And with out Dave Stevens on set this time around, I think there's legitimate reason to worry.
