EXCLUSIVE: While most know Patty Jenkins was responsible for the direction of Wonder Woman, and Gal Gadot portrayed the beloved superhero, not many folks are aware that writer Jason Fuchs was partially responsible for the story.
Fuchs was recently announced as the person who will finally bring DC’s Lobo to the big screen. LRM‘s own Gig Patta spoke with Fuchs on the red carpet of the USC Libraries Scripter Awards and talked about the direction he is heading in for Lobo:
“I think when you’re working on comic book characters, especially ones that are near and dear to my heart, like Wonder Woman and Lobo are, you want to create something that’s true to what the original text are. I think Wonder Woman really captures the feeling of — not only the original Moulton Marston comics, but the George Perez run in the late-80s. It feels like reading those comics up on the big screen. So for something like Lobo, without saying too much about it, it’ll feel, I imagine, quite different, because the Lobo comic itself is quite different. What Keith Giffen and Alan Grant put together was something really unique, and hopefully we’ll capture some of that same spirit when we make the movie.”
Fuchs did a wonderful job with Wonder Woman, and seems to have a personal attachment to the character of Lobo. His vision appears to be both genuine and unique, and hopefully his writing and thought process from Wonder Woman will carry over into Lobo and we will have another great entry into the DC extended universe.
As mentioned above Fuchs has a story credit on Wonder Woman, he is also attached to pen Minecraft: The Movie along with Rob McElhenney. He also appeared as an actor in the Oscar-winning film, La La Land.
