Lobo

It was only a matter of time before Michael Bay even considered jumping aboard another blockbuster film. It’s practically his bread and butter. But after directing five Transformers films and a few gritty ones in between, it looks like Bay is looking to direct a superhero film. Well, at least one that fits his sense of direction. According to new reports, Bay is in talks to direct an adaptation of Lobo, about a grungy space bounty hunter who has crossed paths with some of DC’s most notable intergalactic heroes and villains. More on the story below.

Lobo

With the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice a little over a week away, WB will no doubt be looking to add more DC Comic characters film adaptations to their current slate. But the studio won’t actually be looking too far to find a writer for the long-gestating Lobo, one of DC’s lesser known characters. According to new reports Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman, Pan) will be the new screenwriter.

More on the story below.

DC Introduces The ‘Real’ Lobo Into The New 52

DC Comics Lobo old and new 52

There are many characters in the DC Universe that have a small but loyal fanbase, with the galactic bounty hunter Lobo being one of the most popular. Since his creation by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen in the pages of Omega Men back in 1983, Lobo has gone through a number of different iterations, largely remaining a comedic foil for other heroes to fight or occasionally team up with. Lobo has already been introduced once into DC’s revamped New 52 continuity in the pages of Deathstroke, but it turns out that was not the bastich that fans know and love.

According to DC comics, the “real” Lobo will make his introduction in the pages of Justice League 23.2: Lobo (a one-shot scheduled for release on September 11, 2013). DC is making a big deal about the reintroduction; not only are they bringing the Main Man back, but they are also giving him a whole new look, courtesy of artist Kenneth Rocafort. The new look is quite a departure, making him younger and leaner than he has been in the past.

Check out the new Lobo image here below, along with three other proposed designs that didn’t make the cut.

Dwayne Johnson In Talks To Play DC Comic Anti-Hero Lobo

Dwayne The Rock Johnson May Play As Lobo

Dwayne Johnson, who is practically built to fit any sort of muscular character for TV or film, has confirmed that he is in negotiations to play Lobo, a space renegade riding a star-hopping chopper.

It seems quite fitting that Johnson play as the famed DC Comic anti-hero for a couple of reasons. For one reason, he certainly fits the profile of Lobo. The other reason is that he’s been rumored to play as the anti-hero for quite some time, so its quite nice to hear the news come straight from the horse’s mouth. Of course Johnson stopped short of actually confirming that he was signed on for the role.

Johnson confirmed the news via a Twitter chat. Check out the photo below.

Guy Ritchie Steps Away From ‘Lobo’ To Do ‘Sherlock Holmes 2’; Brad Pitt Not Looking Likely

Lobo

Super producer Joel Silver spoke to The LA Times recently, and on the menu of topics discussed were the proposed comic book adaptation of Lobo, as well as Sherlock Holmes 2 — both of which were set to be directed by Guy Ritchie.

Because Holmes has done so well ($389 million to date), a sequel is being thrown onto that popular fast track to try and get it done and ready while all of the stars are willing to return. If you’ll recall: Sherlock himself, Robert Downey Jr., recently walked away from the comic book adaptation of Cowboys & Aliens, which was to reunite him with his Iron Man director, Jon Favreau (Read: Daniel Craig In Negotiations To Replace Robert Downey Jr. In ‘Cowboys & Aliens’).

Akiva Goldsman Talks ‘Swamp Thing,’ ‘Lobo’ & Others; New ‘The Losers’ Poster

Swamp Thing

In the same interview with the LA Times that revealed Marvel topper Kevin Feige’s view of Batman & Robin as the most important comic book movie ever to be made, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman spoke about all of his other upcoming projects for DC Comics. Covered here is some new bits from the revamping of Swamp Thing and the movie adaptation of Lobo. They also talk about other projects such as Jonah Hex, which you can follow their link to read about.

The best part of everything talked about was easily Swamp Thing. At first this was just another of many remakes which actually sounded pretty cheesy, but with this interview, some excitement has begun to build up. Goldsman explained that they “want a film with real Southern, dark horror overtones, a little bit like a classic Universal horror film,” and that they actually want to make the movie closer to Alan Moore‘s popular comic book vision of the character and not based on the 80s movies.

With these two things, this new Swamp Thing has a lot more potential than it once had, though there is still a long way to go before we really see what they try to do with the property. The article even mentions that Guillermo del Toro himself considers Swamp Thing one of the “few remaining Holy Grails” of comic book characters.

WB Grabs Guy Ritchie For DC Comics’ ‘Lobo’ Movie Adaptation

Lobo

While Disney and Marvel are on their honeymoon figuring out how they’ll organize and move forward with their countless projects, Warner Brothers is keeping right at it with their comic book tag team with DC Comics. The studio has hired Guy Ritchie to direct a new movie based on their comic book title Lobo to follow up his upcoming Sherlock Holmes film.

Lobo follows a bounty hunting alien on a motorcycle who is a pretty intimidating force and perhaps one of the most intriguing comic book characters ever made — though he’s not very well-known. He’s a monster of an alien: standing seven-feet tall, who looks kind of like a Hellboy/Abe Sapien hybrid with some sweet Rob Zombie hair. He was created to be DC’s version of the popular anti-hero like Wolverine or Deadpool — someone who isn’t very friendly, but does some form of good. Of course, Lobo maybe doesn’t always do “good”; his name means “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it,” and he unleashed a plague on his home world, killing every other member of his species in order for him to be the only one left.
