What happened to that Lobo movie?

So way back when in the July of  2012, we reported of Dwane ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s confirmation that he hat interest in taking up the mantle of DC comic’s Scourge o’ the Cosmos himself, Lobo.

With Dwane in talks with Brad Peyton, the man tasked to write the Lobo feature film (who also just happened to Direct Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which stared The People’s Champion himself) and a very confident looking Tweet from the Brahma Bull, this casting call looked to be a sure thing.

Well now it looks like the current reigning WWE Champion will not be stepping into the boots of the Main Man as revealed in an interview by MTV. Unfortunately MTV have only made the interview available in the UK so we are unable to show you the video (what with us being a British site and all), however the nice people over at Shock Till You Drop have been nice enough to write up a couple of key details.

It seems that Warner Bros (who are now somewhat bed fellows with DC Comics when it comes to licences movies) have simply lost interest in the idea of Lobo on the big screen;

John[son] tells MTV in an interview that while the project was hot “for a minute … it just kind of went away as things happen in Hollywood for a minute. I was interested in it, then it went away.”

So adding this flash-in-the-pan treatment of one of DC’s character licences to the mounting issues surrounding upcoming Justice League of America movie, could we start to see cracks forming in the Warner Bros./DC Comics relationship? More than ever WB need to ensure that the upcoming Man of Steel movie releases to a well receiving audience.
