I really never expected Lobo to be made into a movie before The Flash or Wonder Woman, but apparently that’s what the execs at Warner Bros. think is going to sell to the kids these days.  To sweeten the deal, the studio has even signed Snatch director Guy Ritchie to helm the DC Comics adaptation.

Lobo was meant to serve as a parody of violent heroes such as Wolverine and the Punisher, with his stories featuring a nihilistic streak tinged with dark comedy and excessive violence.

No word on release date, cast members and the like.  Some of you may remember a now defunct Virgin Comics which had also signed Ritchie up to direct the movie adaptation of The Gamekeeper, and we see where that is in development.

    I just think the exes are afraid of doing movies with “teh” big name characters… Its been rather hit and miss with the big ones… (Supe, Batman, Spidey) And therefor no one of course has the balls to do it… Lobo is safer, if its fails there goes nothing if not A FRANCHISE IS BORN!
