Whilst Batman and Superman get set to collide later this month, the on-off attempt to get a Lobo movie off the ground has now brought in a new writer.
The Wrap has word that Wonder Woman’s Jason Fuchs has been brought in to pen the script for a film focussed on one of the coolest characters in all of comics. This isn’t the first time that we’ve had hopes of a Lobo movie, though, for 2012 saw San Andreas’ Brad Peyton signed on to direct just such a film. Since then, things stalled, people left the project, and it’s not even known if Peyton is still actually contracted to a Lobo movie, with him next moving on to direct a San Andreas sequel and an adaptation of classic video game Rampage. Regardless, it’s believed that Fuchs’ screenplay will completely ignore any previous drafts done for a Lobo tale.
The character of Lobo himself is a pretty damn uber-nails one, known for having actually held his own against multiple Justice League members when the time called for it. A badass intergalactic bounty hunter who speeds around on his gnarly motorcycle whilst breaking the fourth wall, the Czarnian native is certainly a prime candidate to be brought to the big screen seeing as how well Deadpool is doing at the box office right now.
