KRYPTON Has Found Its Lobo! Irish Actor Emmett J. Scanlan Will Play The Main Man In Season 2

KRYPTON Has Found Its Lobo! Irish Actor Emmett J. Scanlan Will Play The Main Man In Season 2

As previously reported, the second season of SyFy's Krypton is set to introduce a small-screen take on Lobo as its big bad, and word has now come in that actor Emmett J. Scanlan has been cast in the role.

We found out at SDCC that Krypton would be introducing Lobo as its main villain for season 2, and now we know who'll be bringing "Da Main Man" to live-action life on the small screen for the first time.

According to THR, Irish actor Emmett J. Scanlan will portray "the ruthless bounty hunter who murdered his entire species."

This take on the popular DC Comics character is described as "a genius-level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare and is a deadly adversary. He has superhuman strength and is virtually immortal. Lobo's word is the only thing he hold sacred and although he'll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time."

Despite Lobo making his live-action debut on Krypton, this report also confirms that Warner Bros. still has big-screen plans for the character, possibly with Michael Bay at the helm.

Scanlan has mostly worked on TV (In the Flesh, Constantine, The Fall) but he also had a small role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.
