First The Rock as Black Adam.
Now Trejo as Lobo.
Marvel on suicide watch
wow, I... oddly hope he's mostly CG because Trejo is really getting up in age. Maybe if this released the time Machete did he might pull it off but the man is over 70. Not so much I doubt him and more I don't want this acting role to kill him
I mean, he KINDA Looks like him
but it's a lot easier to glue a wig and a beard onto someone who doesn't, but has the other attributes
like oh i dunno.. brad fucking garrett. THE Lobo. the only lobo in my book.
okay he's old but so is trejo
>Lobo as a geriatric mexican
U wot? Just get any young dude who can pull off a biker look and then paint their face.
Unless he's actually completely CG or something and Trejo is just the voice. Then it might work.
Not surprising. Nobody liked him and nobody wanted him and the easiest way to deal with a poorly received change to a character like that is to quietly pretend it never happened.
Shoulda gone with Momoa for Lobo instead of Aquaman.
>he has some of the look
Either we've read very different Lobo comics, or we're not talking about the same Danny Trejo.
Lobo doesn't have a face like a scrunched up orange, for one. Nor does he have a sloppy-prison-style physique.
whats this for a Lobo movie?
I never fucking thought it but he'd be a good Lobo wouldnt he
>You think you know me. You don't know me. You haven't even met me. Yet. Sorry. Not sorry.
>Throw logic out the window and get excited for something that hasn't been confirmed and might not happened, thereby leading to even more disappointment then just not having it happen in the first place.
I've learned to deal with disappointment. Please learn to do so as well.
He appeared recently in Batman/Superman and he pretty much was a lot more like his older self.
If you mean Nubo he was what Lobo would be if he was made today. He sucked by sheer virtue of the fact that he wasn't the old Lobo.
Gonna be honest though Slobo/Lobo/Nubo all being seperate characters in the new52 sharing a team up book would be GOAT.
Ok for the sake of argument lets say Lobo was going to be a part of the DCEU, how would he fit? Contracted by Brainiac to retrieve superman considering hes the last kryptonian?>>79131062
Where have you been? Nubo has pissed people off for a good while. He even killed the lobo we knew and claimed he was a fake
Not only did it happen but when he was introduced they had him hunt down an imposter who was going around claiming to be Lobo.
An "imposter" that was the old Lobo in design and personality.
>actually getting excited for fucking Lobo
yep, marvelfags are definitely on suicide watch
The 2014 reboot of Lobo was a reboot that felt like it was taking it was taking him seriously as a younger, prettier, more generic character
He eventually became a lot less sane and ridiculously violent like the original Lobo but it took 12 issues of what was practically filler and a drug-induced rage to get to it
There was an issue where he killed Dex-Starr and other Red Lanterns
they got better though
That was clearly more because everyone got pissed about the new direction.
Essentially Nubo was meant to be a slight parody of modern characters the same way that the original Lobo was but they did a really fucking shitty job with it.
Yep, Nubo as a prody of the new "bad boys" could have worked, but was terribly done.
Anyone here would be able to do a "Nubo" that parodied modern tryhard characters?
>The Big Red Cheese as a title
>they can't it that because it's too
>they can't call in Captain Marvel because that's an obvious one
Face it, man. Shazam's the best title we're going to get for it.
Personally, I feel it may have been trying to do the DmC set up, which reboots as a new, "more modern" character's origins (nu-Dante as a young scrappy punk/nu-Lobo as a bishie bounty hunter) but eventually grows into a character much like the old one (white haired demon killer/insane bounty hunter)
Of course, anything that can be compared to DmC in execution should be considered a sloppy mess and can be ignored entirely, and are basically frivolous when you realize it's basically parading as a new character but really isn't
Haven't you heard?
I figured Lobo would just show up and EAT this guy
and be like "oh yeah sorry that was my sister. she escaped the planet exploding and thought she could steal my name and try to be hot shit. SORRY EVERYONE. it's over now
>clearly a pro company A thread
>you cant shitpost about company B in it
comon son, keeping the DC and Marvel crowds seperate is the best solution to prevent company wars.
If you want to shit on DC, do it in the Marvel threads where no DC-fan cares
If you want to shit on Marvel, do it in the DC threads where no Marvel-fan cares
guys, I just told my family this news (they're into comic capeshit too) and my mom said "now, remind me, The Rock is Vin Diesel, right?"
I don't know what to do
I really don't care about ethnicity for Lobo, and Trejo is fucking badass... but isn't he a bit older for the role? Then again, I can only hope to be half as /fit/ at his age. Fuck. I wish I was that /fit/ now.
Maybe his voice is a bit too raspy too.
Still, not a bad pick.
Isn't he a bit old for actual action these days? Also totally a manlet?
I mean, with a lot of CGI I guess.
Yeah but that shit happens all the time. Elba twitted himself as a GL.
Love Trejo but at his age this will be one and done and I hope this guy gets to be lobo next time
I thought of him as well, but it'd only work if Lobo had a full beard.
I legit never realised he was in Remember The Titans until I randomly looked the cast up, because of the transformative powers of that beard.
Apparently. It would really look like trying to be Marvel if that wasn't probably an actually good break for DC as a subsidy, maybe the comics people have a bit more decision power than they did before.
>no.. this did not happen.
>there's no way this happened.
That's been the New52 slogan from what I can see.
The smart move would be for DC to premier Lobo in the Green Lantern Corp movie.
Not really a fan of this casting. He is too old and short. He can be badass sure, but I just don't see it. But I do really want a Lobo movie.
Well, that remains to be seen. What I can confirm however is that DC Films photo came from a verified facebook page that was created today but one that is official and not fan made. It's emergence might have happened now considering the purchase of Legendary Pictures (which was a significant production firm of all DC movies as far back as Begins) by a Chinese group late last week, or maybe just because WB/DC are shouting from the roof top this week that they are here, and that we should get used to them. Whether this be a move on WB's part to allow a bit of autonomy on DC's part, or one to confirm the official designation meant to compete alongside the MCU, it is seemingly something enough significance to not be dismissed.
>It's emergence might have happened now considering the purchase of Legendary Pictures (which was a significant production firm of all DC movies as far back as Begins) by a Chinese group late last week
Well fuck me /biz/, what are you doing here?
Well, they've been hyping this up forever. Good to see they're finally doing it. Interesting make up job on him. Wonder if they'll explain the connection to the prior films. Is he some kinda alien clone or cyborg?
Yeah. Conan movie was whack, but has shown Momoa could handle a role like this.
So now all those Lobo books I bought in the dollar or two bins are gonna put my kids through college, right?
Perhaps Geoffs has been groomed to be the Kevin Feige of DC's new division.
You know he and Feige had the exact same production background, right? Johns served Richard Donner as his PA which Feige did for Donner's wife Laura Schuler Donner.
InB4 sex jokesJohns just decided to write comics, and Feiges decided to continue in minimal producer capacities for movies based on Marvel IPs before Marvel Studios emerged as its own production studio.
Would WB even let Lobo have a rated R movie? Or would any movie that happened to have him be rated R?
I suppose they could make the gore less emphasized, not sure how LotR slipped by having so many orcs decapitated and such.
That's kinda racist. That's kind of really really racist. I'm honestly a little shocked. This is a new low I think. There could not possibly be an explanation for this beyond whatever dipshit director using word association.
>"Lobo? That's Spanish for wolf! Let me get a look at the guy. Oh, he looks like a total roughneck! I know just the person!"
I'm not dogging on Trejo, he's great... But FUCKING WHY?! What fucking person that has EVER read more than one Lobo comic would ever pick him to play the role of Lobo?!
The movie industry has been spinning it's wheels in a desperate fit for years trying to make itself relevant again and it couldn't be any more apparent that the people making aren't doing anything beyond throwing darts at a list at this point. Jessica Jones? Really? I'm sure that was a big risk, that Jessica Jones fan base can be pretty vicious.
Fuck Hollywood and fuck the big two, I'm glad all three are dying and I can't wait for time to naturally pass long enough for them to pathetically fizzle out. Good fucking riddance.
Seriously? How many other ugly, hairy, gravelly-voiced actors can you think of? Trejo sounds like the obvious choice to me.
And like it or not Jessica Jones set a new stylistic standard for story-telling in comics when it came out, sorry that you don't read comics or else you wouldn't consider it "throwing darts at a list".
You don't have to apologize to me for not watching Netflix, but I can sure as fuck call you a liar for claiming to read Jessica Jones fucking come off it and don't even.
As for who would be a better choice for Lobo? How about someone that's not in their 60s? How about a guy who hasn't been typecast as 'the scary Mexican biker guy' for decades? I'm calling bullshit.
he really has the style, but isnt he a bit too old?
and everyone hated him and he got canceled.
Also, TOm Hardy wants to be in DC again, why not make HIM Lobo?
he has the build, the acting range, and he's done shit with wigs and facial hair.
just make him blue.
So i got an idea.
Lobo is a homicidal sexist rude asshole who kills people for a living, is fuck all big, and smoike cigars.
There was an option i suggested for deadshot where an actor FAMOUS for playing an asshole cigar smoking killer and gun nut (cigar smoker and gun nut he is in real life).
He's over 50, but a few months at the gym, hair dye, make up, and he'll be AS intimidating as the other DC guys, plus he's still playing action roles on tv.
i wasnt even that big a fan of firefly but i liked his character in that, chuck, and as mother fucking animal mother from full metal jacket.
I really have no clue what you're talking about, are you saying I didn't read Jessica Jones? Why? Even if I hadn't read it, it wouldn't change the fact that the original Alias maxiseries was extremely influential and happens to be heavily connected with both Luke Cage and Daredevil. It was a really easy and obvious choice for a Netflix show.
I can see your point with him being old but since most things he does are over the top and require CGI anyway I don't see the problem. Also why should you not cast someone just because they're typecast? Being typecast just means you're already good at that kind of role.
I love Lobo but there's no way they'd waste a
bigactor like Hardy on him. Not that I wouldn't be psyched about it, I just doubt it would happen.
That or Luke Arnold, aka John Silver from black sails
>I love Lobo but there's no way they'd waste a big actor like Hardy on him. Not that I wouldn't be psyched about it, I just doubt it would happen.
Thats how you get the character to put asses in seats, give him a big name actor.
DCEU has been doing amazing for the past year. I think the only parts of BvS that might stink are holdovers from Man of Steel and Goyer's script. Based Johns has been subtly steering the ship on a lot of things.
Kind of curious what the expectation is, and what would qualify as exceeding it for other studios to think about it.
Not likely to be a super blockbuster like Avengers and such, especially with the R rating keeping kids out, mostly. But I think it should do well enough.
>Essentially Nubo was meant to be a slight parody of modern characters the same way that the original Lobo was but they did a really fucking shitty job with it.
That's not necessarily a bad idea, they just shouldn't have used Lobo, they should make a new character to do that.
I keep trying to read the stuff you're saying about Netflix but I feel like we're speaking different languages so I'm just gonna let it go.
Well, the thing to consider about Trejo is that he was typecast as the scary Mexican biker criminal guy because he was that for years before becoming an actor. He didn't just play that role so well, he's not even technically acting if you think about it.
Maybe he'll really do an amazing job as Lobo and it will become his best known role. What do I know, maybe he's been reading Lobo comics since he was a kid and asked for the role.
But, if they approached him and he just said "sure why not?" before emitting his trademark chuckle, then I'm going to reserve my right to be offended at the inexplicable casting choice.
>DC has 2 upcoming villains that beats the shit out of everything Marvel has attempted to do in 7 years.
Make more comedies Marvel, you are totally not helping DC's side in every possible way.
I don't know, anon.
Lobo, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow are exciting, but Marvel and Fox have ANTS, Daredevil, Punisher, Deadpool, and Cable and Deadpool too.
If Dark Universe, that Metal Men movie, and maybe an Atom movie happened DC would be Marvel tier too. But that's just my opinion. If they brought back some pre-flashpoint titles and characters they'd surpass Marvel, imo. But I'm just a nostalgiafag.
Superior Lobo coming through
You know Donte in DmC? Like that basically in concept and execution. They could have saved it by making him a parody of such shitty modern reboots, just like Lobo was a parody of edgy 80s anti-heroes, but they insisted on playing him dead straight and it was fucking awful.
This is like if fox network picked Cheech Marin to play Bart Simpson just because his tag name is "El Barto". It's so dense in its layers of racism that its emitting a reflective burst of light comparable to that of a dying quasar.
>There are more people excited for Aquaman than anything MCU will shit out next year.
Guess comic fans like superhero movies over quip fest comedies.
I can totally dig it.
he's kind of old for it, but he does fit Lobo's overall rude dude violent biker aesthetic. I cant see him being as expressive as lobo, but i can see him playing things for laughs with a deadpan.
what marvel property would this compete with though exactly? I mean i'd be hype for it, but Lobo IS sort of niche these days
I really wish bishie Lobo and normally Lobo were in a buddy series instead of bishie wanting to kill the other. Just make his sparkles and mannerism super stereotypical to contrast with how '80s and '90s old Lobo is.
for an event that would have been pretty funny. oldbo, the 80's/90's parody, and Nubo, the 00's/10's parody in a buddy flick where they hate each other's guts.
But thats too smart for nuDC.
This was literally the original pitch Cullen Bunn had for the series. Lobo and NuBo as an odd couple bickering through space and getting into over-the-top antics.
Who was the editor for all the NuBo shit again? Cotton? Fuck him.
>Marvel on suicide watch
No, as a DC fan I can say pretty confidentially that WE are on suicide watch.
Neither the Rock nor Trejo could act their way out of wet paper and neither fits the fucking characters.
Ron Perlman is literally Deathstroke. LITERALLY Slade Wilson.
I was really hoping he would be Slade Wilson in Suicide Squad.
>Danny Trejo as the fucking Main Man
I didn't know I wanted this. This would be amazing.
gamergate is more popular than the opposition, and DC doesnt give a cunts fuck about SJWs, especially their movie division.
after all he already does voice work for them.
yeah, Baldwin voice acts for DC in video games.
Stephen Lang is the better choice.
>you will never witness a Lobo played by Macho man randy savage
The way I've always explained it is that Lobo is not a character.
There is nothing interesting about Lobo. He's a caricature of an archetype. He is satire incarnate. Anything that may have been interesting about him was squashed as his other traits were blown out of proportion.
You don't read a Lobo comic for the characters. You read it for jokes, action and sometimes good, old fashioned heavy-metal-magazine gore. There's also a cool/badass factor to it, but if it was only that, it would get old really quick.
It could even be argued that no one actually likes the character of Lobo, they like the hyperviolent, absurdly comedic tone that comes along as a necessity of writing him.
>make new, modern sexy lobo
>shit on him in his own comic
>give him no personality other than edgy
>barely any lewd scenes to warrant any interest
>not even a book where oldlobo and sexylobo are forced to team up
What were they thinking?
I'd agree with this, I like Lobo for the crazy violence and weird aliens. It's some funny shit. Lobo himself is about as one dimensional as it gets.
He's an alien that killed his entire race for the fun of it. He kills almost everyone he meets for no real reason. He has a chip in his head that plays the same heavy metal song over and over. He never goes back on his word and he has a soft spot for space dolphins. That's about it.
desu most of my interest in lobo comes from the jaw dropping artwork
250+ replies in a Lobo thread and only two of them post Simon Bisleys artwork? Oh yeah nothing but "excited fans" in this thread for sure.
>First rule for writing a new version of a character is to have them be the complete opposite of what everyone liked about the original and have them either make fun of or kill the original. Surely by then the new fanbase for this new version will come rolling in!
>Marvelcuck Status: Assblasted
YOUR REIGN IS OVER DEAL WITH IT
I got this from a Google Image search of "lobo". It's not even that far down on the list. It was posted on game faqs two years ago. Did they just Google it?
She was introduced in the 70s, created by a man.
Do you mean some new reboot?
Cause Joker's daughter getting a reboot is basically her entire plot
She's Jokers Daughter, Riddler's daughter, Penguin's daughter, Scarecrone, Catgirl, and Ironically, never as "Two face's daughter" which is what she actually is.
Her running gag is about how comics constantly retcon backstories.
>Casting will be good.
>Costumes will be great.
>Acting will be top notch.
>Script will be... Ehh?
>Marketing will be godawful.
It's so sad that the last two can undo the first three.
I like Danny Trejo as much as the next guy, but unless he's just voice and mocap acting a CGI Lobo who looks exactly like the old Bisley artwork, it's not gonna work.
I mean look at him.
>I mean look at him.
You know actors get in shape when the role remands it, just look at Hammil
He's a pretty good voice actor, and face swapping technology has reached new heights from what we've seen in the new movies (Heck Iron Man 3 had a lot of scenes shot with a body double for Tony Stark with RDJ's face being super imposed on post). Even so, Trejo is a fucking bad ass, there's nothing make up and post can't fix when trying to hide his age (In fact, I don't think they should hide his age).
DC isn't marvel, they don't give a shit about hardline lefties like sjw's and shit like that. At the very least, no more than any other for-profit company.
Now a few of their writers? Sure I agree there. But a writer or two doesn't make up all of a company. For better or worse. Marvel is fucking pathetic as caving to Internet uber-liberals, DC barely seems to give a shit. I don't know it's just how often they reboot, or what, but it seems like DC doesn't try to be as...I don't know the word for it, present-pandering? Okay I've got an example, I've never seen a single gamergate reference in DC. But low and behold, fem-Thor had a gag-line thrown in called "Its about ethics and accountability in hammer bashing" or some shit like that. That's tasteless and pathetic as fuck. Might as well print literal begging for attention on the page instead. It's about as subtle. I can only assume DC avoids this because their continuity is fluid, so they don't have to hammer in (budum-tsh) new characters with WHOA GET A LOAD OF THIS CRAZY CUCUMBER OVER HERE, LOOK AT THAT NEW WHATCHAMCALLIT!
Because they do that with their continuity every 3/4 of a decade already. It's far from perfect, it's treading on decent, but it's no where near the shear transparency of a fuckibg blatant gamer-gate reference in a uber-pro-female comic that's already dripping with poorly written pandering bullshit. God that run was/is ridiculous. Insulting to cancer patients too. Fucking Jesus what were they thinking.
