We'll keep these as rumors for now but bleedingcool.com has received some rather interesting tips regarding Thor 2 and DC's Lobo---

Bleeding Cool was told recently that The Rock is going to play Lobo in Brad Peyton´s upcoming film of the DC comics. An untested, unknown source opened up correspondance with us, and told us a tale of “a Hollywood party” at which Mr. Rock was a guest, and told some fellow partiers that he was going to take the Lobo role.

But, as I said, the source was untested, so I went looking for corroboration in better known quarters. The story sounded a little unlikely, though so many of the true ones do. Either way, I wanted to check it out before passing it on.

Speaking to some people who may have, perhaps, had some good info on the Lobo situation, I connected to a friend of the site who was able to give me some Thor 2 bits and pieces instead.

Some of it we have to keep under wraps for now, but I can say, and with the utmost confidence, that you should expect to see The Enchantress in the film.

Which version of The Enchantress? Well… which version of Jane Foster did they use in the first Thor, eh?

As for Lobo? Dunno. Seems to make sense but I wouldn´t bet my shirt on it. Just hearsay for now.


What do you guys think? The lads over at BC are a little iffy on the Lobo rumor but seem to put a lot of stock by The Enchantress.


Thor 2 is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Thor, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It is intended to be the sequel to 2011's Thor and the eighth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Alan Taylor is set to direct a screenplay by Don Payne and Robert Rodat with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba reprising their roles from the first film. Thor 2 is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2013.

In April 2012, Hemsworth confirmed that filming is scheduled to begin in August 2012, in London, England.Hemsworth also revealed that Thor 2 will have a more Viking-influenced feel, elaborating "I think the science fiction element to Thor… the danger is it falls a little bit into the world of it's 'tough to throw a light to.' I think of big waterfalls and mountains and a Viking influence, where the Norse mythology kind of grew from. Having that in Asgard is going to make it all the more special and that's what Alan [Taylor] wants to bring to it."

YES to ENCHANTRESS!!!!!! HELL NO to the ROCK playing LOBO!!! Though I want to see a LOBO franchise, he needs to be played by Andrew Bryniarski. It was established a looooong time ago by a WIZARD Magazine fan poll that the ROCK, shold be BLACK ADAM:) SHAAAAZAAAAAAM!!!!!!!!
PaulRom - 5/21/2012, 8:31 AM
I hope the Enchantress bit is true. Would love to see her played by Alice Eve.
Not big on The Rock as Lobo though. Love the guy, but I'd rather see Jason Momoa or Jeffrey Dean Morgan play him.
cashsteele - 5/21/2012, 8:34 AM
Interesting tidbit about the Rock if it turns out to be true i wonder how that will turn out and they mentioned Enchantress and Executioner last year so that seem more likely and would be a fan of seeing them in the movie....
Wildaniel - 5/21/2012, 8:35 AM
Sienna Miller for Amora The Enchantress!!!

AlexdoxA - 5/21/2012, 8:37 AM
I'm sorry, I'm not as versed in Thor lore as I should... can someone please explain the "Which version of The Enchantress? Well… which version of Jane Foster did they use in the first Thor, eh?" part of the news
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 8:41 AM
YES!!! PLEASE BRING IN ENCHANTRESS!!!! I"M BEGGING YOU MARVEL!! :D

The Rock is wrong for Lobo.
Supes17 - 5/21/2012, 8:46 AM
I want a hot girl to play Enchantress...

That means curvy in the right places, not skeletal and anorexic...

Think more Sofia Vergara and less Angelina Jolie lol

No I'm not suggesting that Sofia should play Enchantress. I'm just talking about the bod;)

DJ as Lobo? Ha! I called this a couple of days ago.
Supes17 - 5/21/2012, 8:47 AM
@spidey63:
You have the right idea;)

It seems in-line with this http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Rock-Ready-Become-C-Superhero-Feature-Film-30990.html

sounds great............can't wait
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 8:48 AM
When there's Enchantress, there's The Executioner. When there's The Executioner, there's going to be a big battle with Thor. And with that, we fans will be freaking screaming like girls out of pure enjoyment. Alan Taylor, don't fail us now. :D
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/21/2012, 8:48 AM
Cool if true.

The Rock playing Lobo is little bit questionable thou. He has the build and fit the make up and prostethics he would probably need i think he could MAYBE pull it off.
Im worried for the movie more thou.
Better have a damn great and respectful script and great directing.
The Rock needs a [frick]ing great guide if he is gonna do justice for the role.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 8:51 AM
53...Hey, no prob, my friend. ;)

@Supes17 - Haha, you know it. :)
RorMachine - 5/21/2012, 8:51 AM
There was already a rumor about Enchantress and Executioner being in Thor 2, so along withe this I'd say it's a decent bet.

Rock as Lobo? Seems Josh called it right..unless these guys just picked up on THAT for this rumor of course..
Supes17 - 5/21/2012, 8:52 AM
I can't read that models name! *squinting*
BackwardGalaxy - 5/21/2012, 8:53 AM
Enchantress, no. Rock as Lobo, no. And I like the Rock.
GiantNerd0720 - 5/21/2012, 8:54 AM
Rumor has it.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 8:55 AM



Bring it to us, Marvel. Bring it!! :D

Stay EPIC, my friends!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 8:57 AM
I really don't know much about Lobo, but from the looks of it, I'd say this character deserves an R-rated film. And Rock playing as him? Hmm, I could see him pulling that off.
genesis609 - 5/21/2012, 8:59 AM
alice eveeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! or kate from lost!!!!
80sFace - 5/21/2012, 8:59 AM
The Rock for Executioner.

Kate Beckinsale for Amora.
marknjoanna - 5/21/2012, 9:01 AM
so good to be a marvel fan these days.
JohnnyKrypton - 5/21/2012, 9:08 AM
"Which version of The Enchantress? Well… which version of Jane Foster did they use in the first Thor, eh?"

So they're going to make a new one up? EH?

Not sure Rock is right for Lobo...actually I'm pretty sure he's NOT right, but I'm willing to wait and see...

GarMogoth - 5/21/2012, 9:09 AM
I'd like to see Charlize Theron and Conan Stevens as Enchantress and Executioner
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 9:09 AM
Kate Beckinsale as Enchantress?


I could see that happenning. :)

Anyone else have any suggestion on who should play Enchantress?
AC1 - 5/21/2012, 9:10 AM
yeah, sure DC, go ahead and make Lobo instead of Flash, Wonder Woman, a Green Lantern reboot... it's not like we want a Justice League movie or anything...
Gnyah123 - 5/21/2012, 9:10 AM
wait...wasnt LOBO in superman? like sum rocker type guy?
shudnt he be DC??....
thalidomide - 5/21/2012, 9:11 AM
YES for the Enchantress! No for the Rock as Lobo, come on DC what the hell are you doing??!?!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/21/2012, 9:11 AM
@GarMogoth - Charlize Theron as Enchantress sounds good to me.


:D
DEATHbyEXILE - 5/21/2012, 9:12 AM
HelaGood - 5/21/2012, 9:13 AM
Evangeline Lilly for Enchantress


and HELL NO to the ROCK as LOBO. Lame just lame!!!!
thunderforce - 5/21/2012, 9:14 AM
I have heard Enchantress and Executioner for Thor 2 I have also heard there will be more magic than a Harry Potter movie and that Jane will have a friend in the movie named Dr Strange .
thalidomide - 5/21/2012, 9:16 AM
I confirm Helagood's comment
hehemata - 5/21/2012, 9:19 AM
NOO ROCK SHOULD BE BLACK ADAM
Wildaniel - 5/21/2012, 9:22 AM
Like I said, Sienna Miller for Amora The Enchantress!!!


Dedpool - 5/21/2012, 9:24 AM
Well ENchantress would definitely work for Thor 2, and that pretty much brings in Skurge the Exectuctioner as well.

Rock as Lobo? Hmmm Not seeing it. But who knows.
dellamorte1872 - 5/21/2012, 9:24 AM
its obvious ENCHANTRESS would be in THOR 2 shes as crucial to his mythology almost as much as LOKI
MarkV - 5/21/2012, 9:26 AM
zero intrest in Lobo
