The Rock vs Ryan Reynolds

Dwayne Johnson has confirmed on twitter that he is in talks to play the DC character Lobo in a film produced by Joel Silver.  The film may be directed by Journey 2‘s Brad Peyton.  Lobo was a hardboiled alien mercenary in the eighties that was revived in the nineties as an anti-hero parody of Marvel’s Wolverine and The Punisher that proved a surprising success to the creator.  According to his re-envisioned story, he is the last of his kind after he kills all of the others.  Expect some over the top carnage and tongue in cheek/self-aware sense of humor that could rival the upcoming Deadpool movie.
