Michael Bay is a man who makes large and dumb motion films, and a variety of superhero movies are large and dumb motion films, however he nonetheless hasn’t taken the plunge and embraced fashionable Hollywood’s love for males sporting capes. Again in 2016, he defined that he hasn’t achieved a superhero film as a result of he’s not inquisitive about working in another person’s world, including that he’d solely make one if he have been in a position to “redo it” in his personal method. Now, although, Warner Bros. is hoping it has discovered a mission that’ll get Bay’s consideration, and it includes what is well DC Comics’ most Bay-friendly creation.
The character is none apart from Lobo, the Principal Man himself, and The Wrap’s nameless sources say that DC met with Bay in hopes of convincing him to take over the mission. Bay even reportedly gave screenwriter Jason Fuchs some “notes” for a rewrite of the Lobo script that has been within the works since 2016. One challenge, apart from Bay’s distaste for cape films, is that the present script would put Lobo at a couple of $200 million price range. That’s increased than each Bay and Warner Bros. need to go, so The Hollywood Reporter says the rewrite should “scale down” the scope of the mission.
For many who don’t know obscure-ish comedian ebook characters from the ‘80s, Lobo is an alien bounty hunter with enormous muscular tissues, an area bike, and a completely unhealthy/rad perspective. He additionally calls individuals “bastiches,” has a therapeutic issue like Deadpool, and is usually simply as contact as Superman. In different phrases, he’s as large and dumb because the stuff Michael Bay normally makes films about, so this pairing—even whether it is positively only a rumor at this level—appears good.
