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.

    A Keith Giffen version of Lobo would be “cosmic” “cool” and “comical!”

    Lobo and Justice League Dark are the only movies I care to see from DC…..until they do a flashpoint and reboot the whole DCEU!

    • Davonedoyle

      they are actually not rebooting the dceu. their probably just gonna do a soft reboot of characters.

      • Victor Roa

        at what point is BvS a soft reboot of Chris Nolan’s Batman? or even the fight scenes of MoS?

    • Victor Roa

      still interested in Aquaman and Shazam?

  • Dave

    I hope Lobo has a really good origin story because lets face it …anyone who has the nerve to kill every other member of his/hers entire race is worthy of a good origin story.

    sorry, I glazed out there, I just read Keith Giffen and was imagining a Justice League International movie instead, Batman punches Guy Gardner in one punch as Booster Gold and Blue Beetle Laugh…. sigh, I want to live there

    I’m sorry but ‘we’ll capture SOME of the same spirit’?!.!? You’d better capture ALL of the fracking spirit of this character or I’ll be very cross indeed. Almost as Cross as Lobo would be if you killed one of his Dolphins….

    WW was vastly overrated. It wasn’t bad per se (the middle third was fairly entertaining), but for me it didn’t rise to the level of many of the Marvel movies. I think the movie benefitted from low expectations being a DC movie, and the identity politics around the movie that many wanted to rally behind. That said, I’m very much looking forward to Lobo.
