'Lobo': Michael Bay Eyed to Direct DC Superhero Movie (Exclusive)
Michael Bay is being eyed to direct his first superhero movie "Lobo" for DC and Warner Brothers, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

Prolific action director Michael Bay is being eyed to direct his first-ever superhero movie, “Lobo,” which DC and Warner Bros. hope could be their answer to “Deadpool,” multiple insiders told TheWrap exclusively.

Bay met with DC to discuss the project and gave some notes that “Wonder Woman” writer Jason Fuchs will incorporate into a rewrite, the insiders told TheWrap. The studio plans to show the rewrite to Bay to see if they can make a deal, the insiders said.

The project centers on a blue-skinned, 7-foot-tall, heavily muscled antihero alien who works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. The character became popular among DC fans following his revival in the early ’90s as a biker anti-hero.

Captain Marvel Movie Close to Casting Lead

With Wonder Woman in the can with a female director, Marvel is now getting close to its first female lead movie with a Oscar winning actress reportedly in the lead for the role.

Variety says Brie Larson who recently won the Academy Award for Best Actress for Room is the leading candidate for the role.

Larson is 26 Carol Danvers is a officer in the army prior to becoming Captain Marvel which puts Larson on the young side for the role. In fact she’d be the youngest cast member of the MCU outside of Tom Holland. Would this mean a revision of the character’s pass to have her be younger? Probably.

Will a director announcement come soon? The names that floated out have all been women including Niki Caro (Whale Rider) and Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) according to THR. A female director, female writing team and a female lead would trump Wonder Woman whose script was written by Jason Fuchs.

I think Brie is a good actress but she seems young. I’d rather Emily Blunt. Thoughts?
