Last season on Krypton, Kal-El’s ancestors have dealt with Brainiac, they are going to have to face off with the galaxy’s super biker ‘Lobo‘. SyFy has announced they have cast actor Emmett Scanlan as ‘Lobo‘ for the upcoming season. He is slated to be the main villain in this season’s story arc. Check out what we know so far on this below and let us know if you like the casting choice AFTER THE JUMP! Krypton Season 2 kicks off in the spring of 2019!
Created in 1984 by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, Lobo is a Czarnian (originally Velorpian) bounty hunter who, as a nearly indestructible anti-hero, drives a space-faring motorcycle across the cosmos in search of his next target. The character has fought some of the most powerful members of the DCU including Superman, Hal Jordan, Martian Manhunter, and Deathstroke. Some versions of the character have aired on the side of sillier tales, seeing the character take down his fourth grade teacher and even the big man himself, Santa Claus.
The arrival of Lobo on the small screen comes as a bit of surprise as the studio has been reportedly developing a feature film centered around the character with an eye toward Michael Bay directing. WB is apparently considering the character their answer to Ryan Reynold’s successful Deadpool franchise at 20th Century Fox.
The 39-year-old Irish actor has made a name for himself in the television industry, starring in big-profile shows such as A.D.: The Bible Continues as Saul, the NBC adaptation of Constantine as Jim Corrigan and the BBC crime drama The Fall as Glen Martin.
