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.
Its here people – we are one year away from the release of the next film in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Paramount Pictures is not about to let it slip our minds.
Will the new film be good? Who knows. Will it make a billion dollars? Most likely. Will Paramount give us an awesome advertising campaign that will make us forget about all the previous films? Well if the release of the first poster is any indication, the answer to that question is absolutely.
Paramount Pictures took to their Twitter feed yesterday to show us their very first banner for the new Transformers film, and it looks awesome!
The next film in the Transformers franchise, Transformers: The Last Knight, just scored huge points by casting Sir Anthony Hopkins.
The film series announced on Friday via its Facebook page that the Academy-Award winning actor had sign on for the fifth film in the series in a currently unspecified role. Fingers Crossed that its the voice of a Decepticon.
