Rumors have recently surfaced that Michael Bay may be in line to direct a Lobo film. For this to work it would take one hell of a script. Screenwriter Jason Fuchs may be the man for the job. He had this to say about a possible Lobo movie:
“I think when you’re working on comic book characters, especially ones that are near and dear to my heart, like Wonder Woman and Lobo are, you want to create something that’s true to what the original text are. I think Wonder Woman really captures the feeling of — not only the original Moulton Marston comics, but the George Perez run in the late-80s. It feels like reading those comics up on the big screen.
“So for something like Lobo, without saying too much about it, it’ll feel, I imagine, quite different, because the Lobo comic itself is quite different. What Keith Giffen and Alan Grant put together was something really unique, and hopefully we’ll capture some of that same spirit when we make the movie.”
The first key to making a good superhero movie is to find people to make it who are truly fans. Who get the characters they are trying to bring to the big screen, and so far it looks like Fuchs does. Of course we have no idea when or if this film will ever see the light of day, but if it does, Fuchs may be on to something.
