Re: Lobo: Alien Bounty Hunter -- DC's next big screen character??!!

I imagine they'll look to bring it in for the kind of budget Peyton had for the last two movies he's directed for WB: $80-90 million. That's if it actually gets a greenlight. This is one of the DC properties that remained under Joel Silver's control (while Green Lantern and Wonder Woman were taken away from him) and he's just been let go from WB. Whether that'll have any effect on this project remains to be seen.

Seems like Duane Johnson may be interested. Perhaps unsurprising, given the choice of director.

I'd say The Artist Formerly Known As The Rock isn't a bad choice for the Main Man.

Dwayne is an interesting choice. Still would prefer to see him as Black Adam in a "Shazam" film but that doesn't seem likely to happen.

The Rock as Lobo? I'm not so sure of that, doesn't seem to fit his personality and I don't know that he has enough thespian skills to stretch to pull it off.

Rock's heel character at times was close to Lobo IMO. With the proper script...he could pull it off.

Thespian skills? It's not Hamlet, it's Lobo.

I think he'd be a decent enough fit for the role, assuming he's willing to drop his family-friendly appeal for a movie or two.

I always thought Michael Keaton would have made a cool Lobo. True, he doesn't have the bulk but they can always make him an all CGI character. Keaton has the personality. I've always thought of Lobo as Beetlejuice with steroids and suffering from a serious psychosis.

Keaton can do psycho! He can do it soooooooooooooo fuckin' well!

The Rock tweeted this today:

Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.

Nice update. Still a bit amazed they are going ahead with a Lobo film though.
Of all possible characters in the DCU stable, both streetwise, super and cosmic they go with Lobo. Especially considering how the last cosmic character went.

Yeah, I think this and Guardians of the Galaxy are probably the most unexpected (at least by me) comic book movies to be announced in a while.

Re: Lobo: Alien Bounty Hunter -- DC's next big screen character??!!

"Lobo" has been in development at one point or another over various times the last couple of decades. Kind of like "Sgt. Rock" has been and other characters. DC seems to be weird with what kinds of their properties they want to develop into live action. Not obvious choices I agree.

DC-wise I'd still rather see a Hitman movie - no relation to Agent 47 - with Baytor, Six-pack and the gang all included...

Re: Lobo: Alien Bounty Hunter -- DC's next big screen character??!!

It seems an alleged one sentence synopsis has found it's way to the Web.
“Lobo, a powerful alien bounty hunter, lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc.”
So as a standalone movie how does this work to make us relate to Lobo as the hero? He's suddenly now even more an obvious Jonah Hex from space parody.

As a synopsis I can see that as the set-up for how Lobo meets an actual hero and the real hero keeps him in check. I don't see Lobo suddenly keeping a low profile and honoring the native customs and protocols. Not without so much reworking that he's now Lobo in name only.

^ Why do you assume Lobo will be a standard "hero" type?
