Another image of Lobo from Syfy’s Krypton has surfaced courtesy of the actor playing the character, Emmett J. Scanlan (‘Hollyoaks’,’Charlie Casanova’). Honestly, the first couple promo shots didn’t have me sold, but this actually looks like a solid take on the Czarnian and am wondering if they may have actually been able to pull off bringing him to life.
The first image wasn’t quite an action shot like this so hopefully that just means that Lobo in motion will work better than Lobo standing around doing nothing. Which, likely isn’t what he’ll be doing when he debuts on the small screen for the series.
The actor shared the image on Instagram which you can see right here:
We know that the official description that the showrunners have revealed make this look as if they aren’t going to stray too far from his comic counterparts origin story since he is described as:
A ruthless bounty hunter who murdered his entire species, he possesses a genius level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare, making him a deadly adversary. Imbued with superhuman strength, and virtually immortal, Lobo will keep coming until the job is finished. His word is the only thing Lobo holds sacred; and although he’ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time!
What do you think of the new shot of Emmett J. Scanlan as Lobo? Do you think that the actor will do the character justice? What do you think about ‘Krypton’ introducing this iconic villain? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
