SAN ANDREAS Director Talks Future of LOBO Film
Before Warner Bros. came up with a cohesive public plan for its superhero movies, Lobo was one of several movies announced but never saw the light of day. Now, that director, Brad Peyton, is out promoting his film San Andreas, and spoke to ComingSoon about why the Lobo movie never happened.
“I think what’s happening with DC is that they have prioritized what they need to make first in order to kind of lay the foundations for the DC Universe. This is what I believe is happening just from what they’ve been taking about. They’re talking about Justice League, Batman v Superman, and going into Flash, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman. Those are kind of the pillars of that universe.”
The star of Peyton's San Andreas, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, is scheduled to play Black Adam in 2019's Shazam.
