Rumor Has It That Warner Bros. Has Decided To Scrap Solo Movies For DEADSHOT And LOBO

Rumor Has It That Warner Bros. Has Decided To Scrap Solo Movies For DEADSHOT And LOBO

There are a lot of DC Comics movies in various stages of development at Warner Bros. but if a new report is to be believed, the Will Smith led Deadshot and long-delayed Lobo have both been scrapped.

There's a new man in charge of Warner Bros.' DC Films division and it seems some big changes may have already taken place. Take this with a pinch of salt but the Twitter accounts below (both of which are semi-reliable sources of news) claim that Deadshot and Lobo have been scrapped. The former was being used as a starring vehicle for Suicide Squad standout Will Smith but was never confirmed.

On the plus side, he'll no doubt return in Suicide Squad next year and there's still a chance this could happen if that's a big enough hit. However, it's not a "necessary" movie so this is no great loss. 

This isn't the only DC Comics adaptation no longer in the works if these Tweets are to be believed as Lobo - a release which has been in development since before the DC Films Universe was even a thing - is said to be on the scrap pile. That's a shame but the studio may have other plans for the anti-hero!

Either way, an official slate is overdue so here's hoping the studio gets its act together by Comic-Con.
