The intergalactic bounty hunter of the DC Universe is coming to SYFY’s Krypton.
Per The Hollywood Reporter:
Emmett J. Scanlan has been tapped to take on the role of the DC Comics anti-hero in the second season of the Superman prequel drama. Scanlan will recur as Lobo, the ruthless bounty hunter who murdered his entire species.
The decision to bring Lobo into the Krypton world arrives as Warner Bros. — which controls the rights to DC characters on both the big and small screens — is eyeing the big-bad for a feature film. Warner Bros. Pictures is developing Lobo as a possible directing vehicle for Michael Bay. A movie take on Lobo has been in various stages of development for more than 15 years, with Will Smith, Dwayne Johnson, Guy Richie and Brad Peyton all previously connected with the IP.
Season two of Kyrpton will expand beyond Kandor to other planets as Doomsday is unleashed. The Superman prequel will also delve into the origins of Brainiac and get a better sense of the true threat the character poses.
