Or could it possibly beâ€”Lobo?
During a roundtable discussion with online journalists for the trailer launch of â€œHercules,â€ the actor dropped hints for us to figure out on what his next project. Latino-Review was one of the few journalists present at this roundtable discussion.
And hereâ€™s what he said:
â€œOkay. Weâ€™re all friends. Thereâ€™s mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character [to play]. Like everyone here, I love superheroes. What could the right character would be? It just had to be right.
â€œIâ€™ll tell you three things. I wonâ€™t tell you on who it is. Iâ€™ll tell you the three qualities on who weâ€™re looking for. And Iâ€™ll let you guys figure it out. And itâ€™ll be fun.
â€œHere we go. The first quality weâ€™re looking for is that he has to be extremely complex and has a lot going on what that does for me as an actor and for the studio. It gives us some space where we can explore with the complexities.
â€œThe other quality is that the character had to be well known, but never brought to life. As an actor, it gives me space as with the personalityâ€”it gives me a chance to put an imprint into his personality with the tools I can bring to the table. Itâ€™ll be a unique twist into his personality and still pay a homage to on who he is.
â€œAnd the third thing, most important, is that he has to be a badass motherfucker. And on a Superman level of power where he can throw down.
â€œWith those three qualities, Iâ€™m happy we have found that character. And weâ€™re out to a lot of writers.â€
So when will he make the announcement? Maybe San Diego Comic-Con International in July this year. Maybe. But, everything is still in the air.
â€œPossibly, but we havenâ€™t discussed it.”
So with those three thingsâ€”it could possibly be Lobo. What you guys think? Back in 2012 we did a first look video for LOBO, which you can check out below.
