Disney is hot to bring back the bronze-headed hero The Rocketeer. Vulture is reporting that the 1930s matinee hero homage and his trusty jetpack are being reexamined by Disney for a potential reboot.

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.
