The Rock Might Be DC Hero Lobo
Dwayne Johnson aka former wrestling superstar The Rock, has confirmed through his official Twitter account that he is in fact in talks to play DC alien anti-hero Lobo. Johnson announced via his official Twitter account :
“Rumours of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun…”
Director Brad Peyton and The Rock recently worked together on Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, so this could see a swift reunion for the pair. Lobo started life as one of DC comics leading villains, but has been gradually rehabilitated to become a more popular and heroic figure. He’s a remorseless muscle-bound alien mercenary with a fondness for motorbikes and dressing like the lead singer of a thrash metal band.
Expect wigs, KISS makeup, lots of leather and very limited smiling if The Rock does land the role. Till then you can look forward to checking him out alongside Bruce Willis & Channing Tatum in blockbuster summer sequel GI Joe Retaliation.
