Last Bastich Standing

The rumour mill.  Don’t you just love it?

Intergalactic bad-ass biker mercenary or failed KISS member – Lobo!

Horror site Bloody Disgusting reports (via nerd hub Bleeding Cool) that everybody’s favourite former WWE wrassler Dwayne Johnson is getting in on that comics-movie cross-over action and starring as DC bad boy and intergalactic bad ass Lobo, in a movie to be written and directed by The Rock’s “Journey 2 The Mysterious Island” director Brad Peyton.

I don’t know whether this is better news than the previously hinted-at Guy Ritchie take on the character or a harbinger that the ultra-violent emissary of ironic doom is going to have his limb-lobbing, tooled-up ways rather streamlined to meet the demands of a PG-13 rating.

Because taking the hard edges off characters always works, right?

Treat this as salt-worthy until otherwise confirmed but it does rather tie-in to some of Mr Team Bring It’s recent, enigmatic Tweets about his future projects – having said that, he does have quite the packed schedule to circumnavigate before this film gets made…

“Sherlock Holmes – A Game of Shadows” reviews appearing

Hmm...Steampunk.

Den of Geek are on the fence.

Empire really quite likes it.

Total Film even likes it (What gives?)

I’m probably going to see Guy Ritchie’s second, bro-tastic take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master detective this weekend, as I remember really enjoying the first movie even though I can barely remember anything that happened in it (other than two-thirds of the running time seemingly being made up of slow-motion fighting).

Okay, it’s not as good as the current TV iteration, but then what could be?

Robert Downey Jnr is usually good value in whatever he’s appearing in and Jude Law is well…there (Which is nice).  I’m keen to see what Jared Harris does with the role of Moriarty, as any viewer of season one of “Fringe” will attest that he can do low-key villainy with no small degree of aplomb.

If those chaps are wearing steampunk goggles, I’m going to be at the cinema on opening weekend, let’s face it – I’m a simple soul.
