Dwayne Johnson in Talks for DC Comics Film, Is It "Lobo" or "Batman vs Superman"?

Dwayne Johnson in Talks for DC Comics Film, Is It "Lobo" or "Batman vs Superman"?Submit Comment
Vin Diesel spent a good amount of time teasing his fans about a conversation he had with Marvel. It later turned out that he was negotiating to voice the character Groot in "Guardians of the Galaxy." And now, Dwayne Johnson started teasing his own meeting, but regarding a DC Comics movie.

In the past, Johnson has been up for roles in DC movies like Guy Ritchie's "Lobo" and Peter Segal's "Shazam," but neither project ever got off the ground. Now, the actor announced via his annual "Rock Talk" on Twitter that: "We just had a big meeting [with] Warner Bros CEO [regarding] @DCComics 2014."

Since Segal himself recently said that "Shazam" is too similar to "Man of Steel," many immediately jumped to the conclusion that Johnson is once again in talks to play Lobo. And while that's possible, the shirt that Johnson is wearing in the photo (see below) promoting his "Rock Talk" may suggest that he'll appear in "Batman vs Superman." Stay tuned.

Please don't put him in Batman VS Superman, I think this much odd casting decisions is enough, but if they all surprise me... I mean, I f*cking hope they will surprise me :/

"I represent the Alfred of the new world,"he explained

"It's the physical preparations that I'm starting now," said Johnson.
"A very serious training regimen cooking, cleaning, sewing, windows, British.
A thousand and one things.
Ill lose body mass."

Warner Bros does a lot more than live action movies. For all we know, Rock could be writing his own comic, or is a voice actor in an animation feature film or tv show. Perhaps he shows up as a character in Arrow, or the new Flash TV series they're developing, his tweet is very vague.

Last i heard, the Lobo project was dead, and Rock looks nothing like him anyway, would much prefer a beefed up Josh Brolin, if he wasn't already squandered in Jonah Hex.

He could be in Superman vs Batman as Lobo, did you think of that. In the first series of Lobo he wakes with a piece of Superman's cape and is late told that while he was drunk he beat up Superman.

He probably will be Zack Snyder's version of Bane.

from reading Wikipedia Lobo is one crazy character who should probably get his own movie

the guy merged with Howard The Duck for christs sake

Hey crowd, new user, long time comment reader. My first act here is to bitch at Alex, Seems the norm. Just that Shazam isn't a damn DC character, it's the magic words a a kid says to turn into Captain Marvel.
