In May, we reported that Dwayne Johnson might be in the running to star in the DC superhero movie, Lobo. The rumor began when a fan tweeted to Johnson that he’d like to see the star in the role, and Johnson responded, “Funny U say that…” Today, he has added a bit more fuel to the fire, by tweeting about the rumor he started:
“Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. [Producer] Joel Silver and [director] Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun.”
I’m sure if Warner Bros. wanted to go forward on a character like Lobo, who’s mostly unknown outside of comic book fans, they would do well to have a star like Johnson on board, especially since he’s one of the few major actors who can match Lobo’s physique. Hit the jump for more background on Lobo.
