While Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has yet to confirm or deny if he’ll be taking the role of Lobo for his Journey 2 director Brad Peyton (despite this hint), it looks like the DC comics adaptation has an official synopsis. One that actually makes it sound like it has a chance of being a fun movie (of a reasonable budget).
Per It’s On The Grid, “Lobo, a powerful alien bounty hunter, lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc.” And – for what it’s worth – the site lists The Rock as starring.
In the comic, “Lobo is an alien that works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used hard boiled villain in the 1980s, the character remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s, when he became on of the most popular characters in the DC Comics stable.?
No word on a start date yet.
