Dwayne ‘THE ROCK’ Johnson has confirmed he will play Lobo in a film adaption of the DC comic character…
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has confirmed the Lobo rumors. If you didn’t know it has been rumored for a while that Dwayne will be playing DC Comics Lobo in a film adaption by ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ director, Brad Peyton. He was planning a film adaptation of the DC Comic series about the psychopathic creature and it was rumoured he would team up again with Dwayne for the project and now it has been confirmed by The Rock himself on a Tweet:
A little about Lobo —
Lobo, Whose name is Czarnian for “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it” — is an alien bounty hunter and the last of his kind. As strong as Superman, as cunning as Batman, and as ruthless as Wolverine, Lobo was wildly popular in the early ’90s after writer Alan Grant and artist Simon Bisley transformed the character from a somewhat ridiculous space-clown into a badass anti-hero with attitude to spare. Lobo is a seven foot, dreadlocked, alien bounty hunter with a penchant for goth make-up and cigars. He wields weapons on chains and rides a space bike and was created in 1983 by Keith Giffin and Roger Slifer, who intended him to be a satire of excessively violent Marvel comic book characters such Wolverine and The Punisher.
I think Dwayne is a clear choice… He looks the part but will he be able to pull of Lobo’s madness on screen??
What do you think?
I think Dwayne 'The Rock" Johnson will do a great job.

A silver age of heroism...that will start when they look up into the sky at you...with hope for tomorrow. You will help everyone to embrace it."-Dr Fate
