    Or Johnson is more committed to Black Adam. He was still attached to Lobo at this point, right?

    I think Johnson was always more attached to Black Adam, at least for the past 9 years or so. Only other name for Lobo has been Danny Trejo. Last thing we heard about Lobo development was writer Jason Fuchs was working on it. Unless they go more "Cosmic" at DC, probably not attractive enough.

    One or both might be on the back burner from which they could re-emerge or disappear forever. There might not be a satisfactory treatment for Lobo; Deadshot might be dependent on the performance on a second Suicide Squad movie.

    IMO, this is for the best. Frankly, a Lobo film should not be a priority at all when we still need a Flash and Green Lantern film.

    That said...I'm actually more interested in a Deadshot movie compared to a Harley Quinn film.

    Well, Lobo only came up after Deadpool, when WB realized an 'R' rating can still bring in big money.

    I feel like there have been talks about a Lobo movie for a while, but it gained a little more traction once Deadpool became a hit.

    IMO, it's another film hindered by a forced connective universe.

    There had been, but that includes Joel Silver's PG-13 Lobo movie that was thankfully given a mercy killing when it was still in development.

    I dunno. Theoretically, they could still make it a standalone film like with the planned Joker film.

    It turns out that Lobo may not be dead after all. Michael Bay is being eyed to direct and might be involved with re-writes.

    You can't make that stuff up.

    Ugh. Though, out of the various DC Comics properties, that might be a better fit with Bay than most.

    Yeah, as long as it's its own thing, I can buy Michael Bay on Lobo :p.

    Yeah, it can't be as bad as the current crop of DC stuff. It might be stupid and over-the- top, but who knows. So long as it keeps him away from Transformers awhile.

    You know since there is a thread for this (and hey it's something that was started in 2009 and has been updated for years since for new information it should still count) why don't we post the update here that DC is interested in of all people Michael Bay to direct a Lobo movie.

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/lobo-movie-will-michael-bay-direct-1083170

    Now of course there's still a lot of of talk on having to scale the budget back to not be something ridiculously expensive (since yeah Michael Bay can turn a profit even with a movie with such a high budget but... obviously this would not be the same kind of "kids flick" as something like the Transformers series are. And yeah I know The Michael Bay Transformers aren't really Kids flick but I mean "film that caters to a toy franchise that has to have a PG-13 rating attached to it" sort of "kids flick" kind of thing) so it may not happen but... it's honestly not the worst idea for Lobo. Honestly for most characters in the DC Universe Michael Bay would be a terrible idea (though based on a what if itsomerandomguy video still be profitable heh heh) the Main Man honestly would be a good fit because Lobo is such an incredibly in your face, aggressive and tough in your face macho personality you would need someone with the testerone of... well a Michael Bay to really handle him. And honestly if kept to the right length and budget Michael Bay can do that based on stuff like Bad Boys and Pain and Gain. Since honestly you need that super in your face explosive attitude to separate a Lobo from a Deadpool who yeah is also loud and crude but DP is also more of a prankster, goof and sort of romantic at heart which Lobo certainly isn't but has his own sort of charm I think could work in a Bay movie.

    THR reports a few more things:
    • Current script would require $200 million
    • Bay and WB aren't "keen" on the figure
    • Jason Fuchs will rewrite
    • Bay is currently not in negotiations with the studio nor is there an offer

    Isn't it interesting how all these dark solo comic book films are suddenly a possibility? Deadpool, Logan, Venom, Lobo...
