The comic book world has been handed an array of news today, from the Venom-less teaser trailer of Venom to the possibility of Joaquin Phoenix playing the Joker. But the latest tidbit - that Michael Bay could end up helming a Lobo movie - has probably been the most unexpected.
The Transformers director is reportedly being eyed to direct DC's Lobo solo film, with the plan to make it a Deadpool-style adult blockbuster. According to a recent-published report, this was brought on by Bay meeting with the studio, and giving notes on a script written by Wonder Woman's Jason Fuchs.
In a weird way, this news is being met with a mixed-to-positive response online, with plenty of people seeing Bay as a good fit for the larger-than-life Lobo. That isn't to say that the idea isn't without its critics, many of whom are not shy about voicing their opinions. Here's a round up of those responses.
