From playing Negan The living Dead for The Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Guards, Jeffrey Dean Morgan clearly loves starring in comic book-based movies, and he’s not going to quit anytime soon, with the actor recently taking a Lobo project in its future. Morgan has put his name forward for the role of DCs Lobo before, but now, the Walking death star has gone so far as to suggest he might finally get his wish, revealing that something is “cooking” right now.
“There are so many superheroes. I really like Lobo. I wanted to do Lobo for a long time, but we’ll see. We’ll see, I might be cooking something and I’ll let you know if that changes. but I love the world of comic books and hope that I can play in this world for a long time. “
DC’s Lobo is an intergalactic bounty hunter, and one of the last remaining members of the planet Czarnian … with the rest of the species wiped out by Lobo himself after what he called a “science experiment.” Of course, that’s only one version of his backstory. Known for his colorful speech and rapid regeneration, Lobo is more of a nuisance than an outright threat, and is often portrayed as an antihero. Lobo first appeared in the 1980s, peaking in popularity in the 1990s. Lobo was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen and has become a firm favorite of DC fans, with many hoping that he will one day make his way. to the big screen in the same way as Marvel’s Deadpool.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan has several comic book credits to his name, including The Walking Dead, Watchmen, The Losers and played Thomas Wayne in 2016 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor has set his hopes Lobo and in 2009 he revealed he was looking forward to the title role in a possible project from director Guy Ritchie. As of 2018, DC Films reportedly watch Transformers’ Michael Bay for a Lobo film inspired by the success of Tim Miller Deadpool, although there have been no updates since then.
Thanks to his past roles, it’s easy to watch Morgan fill Lobo’s giant boots, but he does have some very intimidating competition on his hands, with Guardians of the Universe star Dave Bautista recently revealed that he, too, competed for the role. “I’d really watch Lobo. I’d be really interested. I’d be all about it,” said Bautista. Luckily for Morgan, Bautista has also set his sights on another DC role, that of Batman villain Bane, “Oh, it would be Bane all day,” he said of his entry into the DC cinematic universe. “I haven’t made a secret of this. I want to play Bane so badly that I went to Warner Bros., met them, met DC, walked in the door and said,“ I want to play Bane. “I’m not kidding. They were kind of like” Woah, we don’t even cast Bane. “I thought,” I don’t care, I’m playing against him. “
Morgan could have his hands on a disappointed Bautista no matter what he’s cooking for Lobo work out. This comes from CinePOP.
