    Did anyone really believe this would actually happen, anyway?

    Not really counting all DC projects are dead but when I saw the thread bumped, hopes were raised...

    Good. I hated the idea of a PG-13 Lobo with blue skin. Does that sound right at all?

    I was thinking about this just yesterday and for some reason I was thinking that the only person who'd be able to pull off playing the REAL, R rated Lobo would be Danny Trejo.

    I figured the wild success of Deadpool would jab a pin into WB's derierre and make them move on this project....

    WB probably got 50 pitches for The Authority this week alone.

    You may be in luck then Magmaster12 as "someone assigned to write a script" doesn't really mean anything production wise these days (someone was assigined to write a script for a Black Widow movie over 5 years ago... never heard anything else about that project) so this could be sat on for awhile. Especially because Lobo is not the Deadpool equilivent at DC. Remember Deadpool was made not only because of Ryan Reynolds super passion for the project, but that Deadpool in general is a very high comic seller with a lot of titles and impact on the medium. Lobo somewhat had that... in the 90's at the heyday of the character's popularity but that certainly isn't the case nowadays. He doesn't really have any titles going on right now or many major appearances in various storylines for the books and doesn't have the recognizability or supreme fan love now Wade Wilson would have. It's still there somewhat but... not nearly to the same degree of DP. I suppose a film could still happen but the reason something like Suicide Squad was picked up wasn't just due to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy but due to the Suicide Squad still being a successful comic line successful characters DC has attached to it. Seriously if there's a DP Equilivent at DC it's more Harley Quinn then Lobo honestly. So unless we actually get some more behind the scenes info about this, I wouldn't expect to hear anything about this for awhile. Especially as the main DC line up already extends to 2020 anyway.

    I could care less about Lobo, TBH, but if they do it, they have to use his pre-52 look. The new one is too Twilight for my liking.
