One more Director Whoring the Marvel/DC Universe to take now the straggling, very little known, and not very compelling Superheroes left to turn into a franchise. ( ANd based on the above picture, buy a statuette). And Yes, that man would be Guy Ritchie. Of Snatch/Madonna fame and perhaps with his authentic and stylistic take on film, we’ll get a whole new type of film.

I hear the word on the streets from Cinematical via Variety;

And here’s one more director who’s looking to throw their name in the comic adaptation hat, as Variety reports that Guy Ritchie will jump from Sherlock Holmes to a big-screen adaptation of the DC comic Lobo, about an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. The character, created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, first appeared in an Omega Men issue back in 1983 as a sort of noir villain, though he was later reinvented as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s.

So, yeah, Lobo…We shalt see.
