    According to the producers of the "Superman vs. The Elite" WonderCon panel they want to do some non Batman/Superman animated movies but they needed the continued success of the Sups and Bats movies in order for movies based on other characters to be greenlit.

    Unless it's animated it'll suck. DC needs to stick to doing animated movies, it's what they do best.

    I'd be pleased if they got the guy from the Paramilitary Special to play him, but otherwise I'm cautiously pessimistic.

    Well sounds not promising.
    All this joker has to do is look at the * comics! The Main Man is not rocket science.

    Why on earth choose Lobo to do a kid friendly film? Of all the characters in the Dc catalog that would work really well in a kid flick, LOBO is what they go with?

    thats what i mean. the DC movie people really need to step their game up. marvel is seriously kicking their *. they should simply go the route of marvel, publish movies of all the main characters, flash, wonder woman, etc and after its done, do a justice league movie.
    the material is all there, im seriously doubting their decicion making abilities. well, lets see how lobo plays out

    I think I would prefer a Sheriff Lobo film over this.

    Even the Lobo that was on Superman: the animated series was pretty tame but Michael Ironside voiced him so it was fine with me.

    the thing is, im kinda ok with this cast.

    the important thing about lobo is his appearance. it is supposed to be intimidating. and im pretty sure "the rock" is pretty intimidating.
    I dont know how well he can portray the: "there is nothing good about me" attitude, but as i see it, lobo is pretty over the top, so it can be acted in a lot of different ways.

    Johnson is not a bad actor, he is no oscar-performer, but he is decent at what he does, action. And im pretty sure a lobo movie will have lots and lots of action.

    so to summarize: perfect body type, decent actor, possibly a good cast (we will have to wait for footage to say for sure anyway)

    I won't rule out he can pull it off if he does his homework.

    The Lobo comic sense of humor is unique to say the least.
    How that will stay intact on film is concerning. It's ultraviolent
    parody upon parody at times. Will they chicken out when it counts most
    to portray that?

    Anything less than an R rating would be a disservice to the character. And space dolphins are a must.

    I would expect a disservice than. Any of these Marvel or DC movies will not make as much money if it is R Rated. Even though films like Batman are SUPER DARK and fairly edge-y, comparatively speaking....... They still are rated PG-13 for a reason. Families. Kids still wanna see these movies, and families want to be able to take them. Action figures, licensing deals, all that nonsense. Lobo will fall in line w/the rest when push comes to shove. It doesn't mean it was a bad movie, just look at the past 2 Batmans & The Avengers. But it won't be R rated. I would almost be willing to bet on it.

    DC is becoming the Research in Motion (Blackberry) of the comics/entertainment industry.

    Such a fun character though, any quality film about him would have to be super-mega ridiculous with a very hard "R". Just get the idea of a PG-13 Lobo out of your head, DC.

    Also, a score by Mastodon would be most excellent.

    No, it has to have an edgy, rock appeal. Hard, but yet still family friendly...

    Think Evanescence.

    Sorry, no offense meant. I like their singles at least, or what I've heard. But I also think they have a broader appeal then just rock fans or hard rock fans. Lobo is great, but certainly not well known amongst the public. Which is why I said it would be hard to make money on this movie and not appeal to a broader audience. If they just wanted to cater to Lobo fans, they can, but they won't pull in the general public. IMO.

    I never knew of Lobo for years until I just happened on the guy and his adventures (mis-adventures?) one day,and I must say I like him.

    But face it you need to do an over-the-top parody/comedy take on superhero films if you wanna get Lobo right,and it has to be R rated.
    now they did do Constantine in R rating if I remember right,so doing this that way could work as long as you keep the humor thick and the violence flowing.

    I'll just wait and see what they come up with.

    Brad Garrett was Lobo. Michael Ironside was Darkseid and the TDKR Batman from the "Legends of the Dark Knight" episode.

    I'm genuinely curious to see this, just to see if DC can produce a decent film anymore that isn't based on Batman.

    Re: oh god no...Lobo movie coming, starring....

    While I have no real problems with The Rock playing Lobo in and of itself, he certainly has the physique, I am kind of concerned about what might be behind the casting. Considering that The Rock, in recent years, has been doing more and more family friendly films I'm not too sure that he'd be willing to do an R-rated Lobo movie which means that he's being cast because the movie will be, relatively, family friendly.

    Re: oh god no...Lobo movie coming, starring....


    All I had to see was the pile of crap movie "Doom" to form my opinion on how this venture will go. Don't get me wrong though, I LIKE "the Rock" and have enjoyed him in multiple movies but I think these types of roles are just not a good fit. Sure, physique wise he fits the bill perfectly but I have serious doubts to his ability to portray Lobo's insanity. At least in the case of the potential Deadpool with Ryan Reynolds I can at least see Reynolds pulling off the role well.

    Hmmm, what about Jeffrey Dean Morgan? The actor who played The Comedian in Watchman. Grow his hair longer, keep the muscles, make the skin white, instead of Comedian's mask, add in the paint. Maybe? I don't know I think he could do a good job.

    jeffrey dean morgan is by far not big enough.

    the reason i can see johnson pulling it off is walking tall.
    he also never was "playing" a nice guy on WWE.
    fast 5 wasnt too bad either (the movie wasnt too good, but johnson did well)
    have to wait for GI joe for another potential reference

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan is 6'2" he's tall enough. Dwayne is only 3 inches taller. Jeffrey could gain a little more muscle mass for the role. I think he has the attitude and charisma for the role. Not to mention you can easily make someone look bigger than they should. Hell Westley Snipes is 5'9 and he looked big for Blade. Hell he even wants to play Lobo.

    As much as I like Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson he's not exactly that awesome of an actor. No matter what he does it's like, watching The Rock in every role.

    I would rather have a better actor than bigger muscles. That is why Hemsworth is a better Thor than HHH.

    It's not all about size. Mckellan and Fassbender don't look like Magneto from the comics, but both played him well.

    Is that serious? HHH as in Hunter Herst Helmsley??? Triple H? Was he ever actually seriously considered to play Thor? Hey, I agree, he looks the part. But god, I would have never seen that movie.

    For those people complaining about other actors height and/or mass. Remember the guy who played Hagrid, Robbie Coltraine is only 6' 1" and they made him look 9' tall in Harry Potter. In the mass department they made Chris Evans look 100 lbs lighter and at least 6 inches or more shorter in Captain America. I am sure they can reverse that process digitally.

    this role needs a good ACTOR not a good body
