Ever since the release of Man of Steel back in 2013 many DC fans have been clamoring for a movie centralized around Lobo, a crude, loudmouthed intergalactic bounty hunter. It looks like they are going to get their wish! However, their director choice may stir up some controversy.
According to a story put out by The Wrap, Transformers director Michael Bay is being eyed to help the project. This would be Bay’s first superhero movie.
For the most part the internet has reacted negatively to Bay’s involvement once this news was released. The director has created good to great films in the past such as The Rock, Armageddon, and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. However, the stench of the Transformers franchise is all fans can think about. Those films do make money, but are consistently critically panned, and have gradually become detested by audiences with each installment.
As of now Warner Brothers has not confirmed The Wrap’s story, but the film does fall within the director’s wheelhouse, so it’s probably true.
As of now the Lobo film does not yet have a release date.
