Rumors have been circulating for awhile that The Rock is up for a DC movie. Most people really want him to play Black Adam if DC can ever get a SHAZAM movie going. Although he has said numerous times that he would love to do play SHAZAM's main nemesis, more recent rumors say he is in the running to play Lobo. During and online twitter chat today he calls Rock Talk, Johnson said he does indeed have Lobo on his radar.




Like The Rock said in the above tweet Joel Silver and Brad Peyton are currently working on the film with no release date. This is not confirmation that he has be cast in the part just that he is a strong possibility. Leave your thoughts in the comment boxes below if you think The Rock will be a good Lobo.

Wait that movie still exists? O.o

Never imagined him as Lobo....

I always wanted him to play Black Adam, he definitely has the look but deep down I just don't think he has the acting chops to pull it off.
toco89 - 7/15/2012, 12:38 PM
Black Adam...yes(looks just like him).

Lobo...wtf.

toco89 - 7/15/2012, 12:39 PM
MICKEY ROURKE FOR LOBO!!!!!!!
jazzman - 7/15/2012, 12:40 PM
WTF sorry Rock i like u but your are Black Adam not Lobo.

plus Lobo is going to fail big time first of its not going to be produce by Legedary Pictures. Joel Silver should has no right to produce any DC films.
jazzman - 7/15/2012, 12:41 PM
Kevin Durand is Lobo
JDUKE25 - 7/15/2012, 12:46 PM
No no no no no no no.
Minotauro - 7/15/2012, 12:47 PM

DC should just give up. Marvel destroyed them at Comic con yesterday.
Necroxide - 7/15/2012, 12:51 PM

RipperSavage - 7/15/2012, 12:51 PM
Enough of the #@%$#@ Rock!!! %*@%^!!! #%^#@!!!!!
FU@* the Rock!!!
valeriesghost - 7/15/2012, 12:51 PM
He just doesn't have the face for it. And really, the rock just comes across as a good guy, I can't see him having the twisted mind needed to pull this off. That being said I don't have a better suggestion off the top of my head.
rebellion - 7/15/2012, 12:53 PM
lol, get someone who can actually act
valeriesghost - 7/15/2012, 12:53 PM
I'd rather save him for black Adam, although I don't see shaman ever happening. But I also couldn't see an annan movie happening either. And maybe it still won't.
TheKeywork - 7/15/2012, 12:54 PM
PLS NO
RamonSuarez - 7/15/2012, 12:54 PM
Oh god please no.
Knightrider - 7/15/2012, 12:54 PM
How can I live in a world where Johan Hex and Lobo are getting big screen adaptions before Flash and/or Wonder Woman
scmittydude - 7/15/2012, 12:55 PM
lol lobo isn't exactly a role you would get scorsese and deniro for. come on be reasonable.
ManofSteel23 - 7/15/2012, 12:56 PM
who the [frick] is lobo
IIIAdamantiumIII - 7/15/2012, 12:57 PM
Please yes, just so people can bitch and cry over something new today.
RipperSavage - 7/15/2012, 12:57 PM
@Knightrider Dont forget about STEEL and CATWOMAN-Halle Berry. 2 DC Classics!
Knightrider - 7/15/2012, 1:01 PM
@DarkMetal My lord, forgot those. Plus he'd be a perfect Black Adam, has the looks and judging from Doom, can play an evil guy.

Lobo? Just why? Man of Steel is the potential starting block for a DC universe on screen the second, third or forth block shouldn't be Lobo, when you have Flash and Winder Woman to get done, plus GL and Batman reboots to get sorted.
SmokenOaken - 7/15/2012, 1:01 PM
If there's a Lobo movie, I vote for Simon Bisley to animate it.
Enterlion - 7/15/2012, 1:04 PM
Kevin Durand would be better. Rock for Black Adam.
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/15/2012, 1:05 PM
Well... he has the build and smile and isnt a too bad actor. He just needs shit load of make up in his face and body and sharp teeth, cigar and long black hair.
It could work... MAYBE!... Future tells!
BUT THE MOVIE NEEDS TO BE BLOODY AS HELL!!
Durf - 7/15/2012, 1:05 PM
If it's still PG-13 then they can [frick] off
marvelmaniaco - 7/15/2012, 1:06 PM
Lobo is one of my favourite dc characters I really want him to have his own film but id prefer Jeffrey dean Morgan as him
JULEZ13 - 7/15/2012, 1:06 PM
I still don't understand WBs fascination with Lobo - a character the non-comic book reading public doesn't even know exists!

Why they feel the need to give him a solo movie before the Flash, WW AND the Justice League is beyond me. It is also very, very frustrating as a DC fan.
95 - 7/15/2012, 1:09 PM
I don't know this character. So I don't care for Warner Brothers to make this. Rather them stick with a good slate of DC films they got going with TDKR and MOS. But I do like "The Rock".
Durf - 7/15/2012, 1:09 PM
@tea: lol, well played sir
AlexDeLarge87 - 7/15/2012, 1:09 PM
SirWinsalot@ Rock is exception.
tripttwe - 7/15/2012, 1:10 PM
I'd rather see the Rock playing the Puma, Thunderbird, (obviously) Black Adam, or even Bishop -screw it. I'll believe this when I see a trailer... Maybe not even then...
jondoe297 - 7/15/2012, 1:11 PM
You know what I can deal with him as Lobo because he is big enough to play so no one will bitch like they did with Tom Hardy and Bane can he pull him off I think so if he takes on his wrestling pro sona cuz that's the kinda the personality Lobo has you know by calling him self the " main man" so yes he can do it and besides he can do black Adam as well just cuz they are both in the DC universe don't mean he can't do both characters look at Chris Evans he did
tripttwe - 7/15/2012, 1:13 PM
PS: this things needs rated R treatment all the way.
