There are a lot of possibilities for Lobo, but we were a little surprised to hear this one was ever on the table.

Lobo is a great antihero character, maybe DC's best, so it's not surprising that Warner Bros. would want to make a movie out of him. The biggest questions, though, are "How?" and "Starring whom?" While we may not know the former, we have found out who Warner was hoping would be the latter. Before the Rock, that is.

Will Smith.

Keep in mind this was around 2007, when Warner was pleased with Smith's performance in I am Legend and wanted to cast him in as many pictures as possible. One of them, apparently, was Lobo.

Now, we get that Will Smith is easily one of the top five biggest action heroes of the last quarter century, but Lobo? We're just not sure Smith's the right fit.

What do you think?
