More superhero movie news, if you’re ready. Zach Snyder, director of Watchmen and 300 is rebooting the Superman franchise with Man of Steel. But that isn’t news. The news is some footage was shown off at Comic Con and garnered mixed reviews. Apparently, Snyder is going the Nolan/Batman route making it dark and realistic. The newly released poster, aside from making the suit look like a car mat, definitely looks like it is in that same gritty field. Man of Steel will arrive in theaters next year.
More news for DC Comic fans, as apparently there are moves being made to bring Lobo, the interstellar bounty hunter, to the big screen. And he might be played by……..Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. If you forget Race to Witch Mountain, The Tooth Fairy, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and basically anything he’s made in the past 5 years, I think it’s a good fit. From his twitter: “Rumours of me possibly playing LOBO are true, Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun…”
