Which DC character is coming to the big screen next?

September 12th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

Does anybody out there want to see a Lobo movie? Is this something you’re excited for? Yeah, it’s not high on my list of must see films, but I’d check out the Blu-Ray. Well, if you are dying to see DC’s bad to the bone bounty hunter come to life, I have a new plot description for you.

The folks at Latino Review came across a posting on The Grid which gives a log line on the film. It says:”Lobo, a powerful alien bounty hunter, lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc.” It also goes on to list Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson filling the title role with Akiva Goldsman and Joel Silver producing. Also listed as a writer is Don Payne who also write for Thor and its sequel Thor: The Dark World.

How do you guys feel about this? Sure The Rock is a shoe in as Lobo, but do you really want to this movie made? I guess for me it would be about two things. One, how would this movie tie into other DC projects like any Man of Steel sequels, the proposed Batman reboot or the proposed Justice League movie. Just throwing Lobo out there to sink or swim on his own wouldn’t make sense to me. But second, who would the four fugitives be? I wouldn’t care about a B-list character like Lobo chasing down C-list villains. I remember the Green Lantern Brightest Day run brought Lobo to Earth to hunt Atrocitus (though it had been a set up and it turned out Atrocitus had paid Lobo to hunt him). That would be a great way to introduce Atrocitus, setting him up to appear in any future Green Lantern project wether its a reboot or a sequel. So what do you guys think?
