Lobo is an upcoming American superhero film based on comic book character of the same name set in the DC Extended Universe. The film will be directed by Michael Bay, from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs.



In September 2009, Warner Bros. announced that Guy Ritchie would direct a live-action adaptation featuring the comic book character. Variety described the premise: "Lobo is a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled antihero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenage girl to stop the creatures." Ritchie was scheduled to begin production of Lobo in early 2010 and bring an "irreverent, gruff tone" to the film as he did with previous films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, though the studio was reportedly aiming for a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America.[1] In early 2010, it was reported that Ritchie had left the project in order to pursue working on a sequel to his hit film Sherlock Holmes instead. The future of the movie was then put on hold.[2] In 2012, Deadline reported that Brad Peyton would write and direct the film.[3] In March 2016, it was reported that Jason Fuchs will be writing the film's script.[4][5] In February 2018, DC Films is eyeing Michael Bay to direct the film inspired by the success of Tim Miller's Deadpool film, but only if Bay agrees to direct under the right budget that's below $200 Million.[6]


In July 2012, Dwayne Johnson announced via Twitter that he was in talks with Joel Silver and Brad Peyton to portray Lobo,[7] however on in February of the following year, Johnson left the project to play another villain from the DC Comics, Black Adam, in the Shazam franchise.[8]
