Captain Atom isn't popular enough for a live-action movie. An animated film would be alright, though.

YES! I love Captain Atom.  Give him a chance.  I would hold off just for now tho and see how well the Flash and others do to help pave the way for him.

Actually, I think he should get a movie of his own eventually.   His powers, abilities and quasi-tragic origin story make him a good candidate for  a 21st century hero.  The biggest problem is that he hasn't had a really good storyline since the Armageddon adventure in the Wildstorm Universe.   But one good storyline and he could become a MAJOR charactor.

I think he should too. He is a great superhero that has a very interesting origin/story to tell. I think the right story will allow him to become a great well known superhero in mainstream audience. I think he should be made as soon as a good story comes along just like Flash and Wonder Woman. Why? Because he is has a story to tell and if it happens to be before them then that's fine.

No! It's like making the movie based on Dr. Manhattan.
