All signs point to the Rock negotiating to play DC Comics character… Lobo.
For those of you who don’t know Lobo:
An alien, Lobo works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used hardboiled villain in the 1980s, the character remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s. The character enjoyed a short run as one of DC’s most popular characters throughout the 1990s. This version of Lobo was intended to be an over-the-top parody of Marvel Comics superhero Wolverine.
Chances are the Rock will be playing the over the top version from the 1990s. Smart ass, rude, violent and in good hands extremely entertaining.
