    The DCEU has been a meme since it started. It's honestly embarrassing.

    Well, people got their wish to get Snyder out of DC films but now they might have to deal with the Bayhem

    I wonder if they could get Phoenix for this given how hesitant he's been in the past to appear in comic book movies, though I get why they'd go for him in this role.

    Be kind of funny if his Joker ends up being better then Leto's...

    Well, if there was any kind of comic book property that would be perfect for Bay's sensibilities, it would be Lobo .

    Just don't let him touch anything else...

    Sigh. WB just keeps trying to "answer" to Marvel over and over again and they will keep embarrassing themselves and ruining great DC characters over and over again.

    Sounds like the embarrassment will continue. Jeezus, WB just doesn’t have a clue.

    People always like to joke about how ridiculous rich folks are. WB is certainly a great example for that.

    Do you think Bay will even notice the character is supposed to be a parody of the kind of stuff he usually makes?

    It's like WB just wants to destroy the DC brand at the cinema! Which sucks as a fan!

    Hoping for the best with Aquaman, Shazam and SS2 since strong talent is involved. I trust Patty with Wonder Woman so I'm looking forward to the sequel but everything else is just a big WTF!
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    A buddy of mine mocked Bay and posited Robert Rodriguez as an alternative, what do you guys think?

    Keep in mind this could all prove to be a hot load of nothing, similar to how Mel Gibson was the first reported director in talks to do Suicide Squad 2 but ultimately the job went to Gavin O'Connor instead.

    Though he is responsible for the Transformers saga, I think Pain & Gain showed that Michael Bay actually is capable of making a competent (though good + tasteful is subjective) film. So who knows how a Michael Bay DC film will turn out?

    Anyways a small update on the Bay Lobo story:
    Mega(tron) director Michael Bay may be going from the world of giant robots to the alien worlds of DC Comics.

    Warner Bros. is developing Lobo, a feature based on the muscle-bound, cigar-chomping alien bounty hunter, as a possible directing vehicle for Bay.

    There are no negotiations — heck, there’s not even an offer from the studio — but a dance between the two has begun. Part of any decision will rest on a rewrite that scribe Jason Fuchs would need to do.

    Sources said that Lobo, as it currently stands, would be a tentpole costing upwards of $200 million, a figure that has Warners execs reaching for the Maalox. Bay, too, has signaled that he isn’t keen on the massive nature of Lobo. The intended rewrite would scale down the project while still keeping the director’s interest.

    It seems after the box office failure of JL, Warner's keeping a closer eye on their DC film budgets.

    Exactly! Lobo is a parody of everything Bay stands for! The “extreme” “bad ass” who likes to kill people and blow shit up. The fact that WB is considering him to helm a Lobo film is the biggest face palm ever.

    So it seems at this point the only DC movies to look forward to are Wonder Woman 2 and Aquaman. It’s just mind boggling how incompetent WB is with handling this franchise.

    Oh, I'm expecting a headline along the lines of "Wonder woman director replaced by Uwe Boll" any day now.

    Lmao. In all seriousness I think the logical thing to do is trust wait until Wonder Woman’s trilogy is finished and then Warner Bros should wait a while. Once enough time has passed, do a hard reboot. And that’s assuming that the Flashpoint movie isn’t gonna DOFP this whole universe.
