Universal picks up Cobalt 60
Universal Pictures has acquired the film rights to Cobalt 60, the late Vaughn Bode’s ultra-violent underground comic set in a postapocalyptic world.
Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) is set to direct.
Bode published just one story starring the masked Cobalt 60 in 1968. Bode’s son, Mark, revived the characters with Larry Todd in 1984 for Epic Illustrated.
