    What's the problem, again? Lobo is probably the best character for Bay: no real depth or complexity. He's just a big, dumb, space biker who blows crap up and kills or captures people for profit. Perfect for a guy like Bay.

    Lobo has exactly two personality traits that give him any "complexity." 1.) His inexplicable (as in it's literally never explained) love of dolphins. 2.) His "my word is my bond/no contract no kill" code of honor. Well within Bay's capabilities. Meanwhile? High action and lots of explosions are also on the menu, and Bay excels at that.

    Bottom line? This is about as good a match for Bay's abilities as we could hope for and whether people like to admit it or not, the guy sells movie tickets. People don't have any illusions about what they're in for when they go to see his movies. Somehow, he manages to be "Rotten Tomatoes proof." This is pretty much a guaranteed win for WB if it happens.

    Lobo is a comedy character. Bay doesn't do funny.

    Lobo has better runs and more smarter written comics than a lot of DC characters. He's a satire character, it takes skill much like Deadpool. Bay will make him a parody of what Lobo was supposed to parody.

    If these rumors are true. Michael bay as finally gotten his hands directing a dc character. If memories serve me right, I remember a rumour after the success of the dark knight. dc wanted Michael bay on man of steel but he wanted to remain on transformers films. So they got Zach Snyder instead. I don't know if this rumour reached the media by it was within the film industry. Sometimes, I wonder if it was Michael bay at the start of the dceu, if the outcome would have been better or much worse.

    Bay does do funny. It’s just that whenever he does do funny it tends to be shit that would make a twelve year old giggle. A good example would be the robot testicles from Transformers 2.

    A good script with good humor can mitigate that, no problem.

    And Ford should have stopped making cars for a few years after the Edsel flopped. Instead they came out with the Mustang. The superhero movies are huge for Warner Bros. They are going to keep making them whether
    a select group of the fandom and the critics like them or not. They will just make different superhero movies that don't have the stink of Zack Snyder on them.

    I wish the poll allowed ranking,

    Vulnerable/Emotional is probably at the top, but its so closely followed by martial arts/gymnastic skills.

    I'm hearing WB wants this Lobo film to be its answer to Deadpool. Not sure I see that panning out.
    Always Forward. Forward Always.

    Not with Bay running the show, no.

    As much as I enjoyed the theatrical cut, DAMN do I want that black suit integrated into the film. It's gorgeous.
    What can I say but, "I love comics."

    Why do they spend so much time/money shooting all these scenes if they'll just be cut from the final version? Do they not care about plot building or do they 2nd guess themselves to death?

    Marvel build its Universe by establishing the superheroes first. It seems DC is now moving in the direction of establishing it's villains. I like it. It seems like within a few years there will be a solid InJustice Society and with that perhaps another Justice League movie. One actually worth watching because of villains will be something people will be interested in. I honestly think this is the way to move forward. Bring on Lobo bring on the Joker bring on Black Adam. Bring on Deathstroke
