Asked whether he’d reached out to Ritchie yet, Morgan downplayed his previous conversation about the project.
“I said that in passing,” Morgan told MTV News of his prior comments regarding the “Lobo” lead. “I don’t t know that I’m a big blue guy.”
No stranger to comic book movies, Morgan recently wrapped shooting on “The Losers,” an adaptation of Jock and Andy Diggle’s action-packed comic book series. However, comic fans probably Morgan best as the face of The Comedian in Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ legendary series “Watchmen.”
“Lobo happens to be a character that flies by the seat of his pants,” said Morgan of the character’s appeal. “I don’t know if I’m the guy or not, but I think it’s going to be one hell of a movie. I’ll certainly be going to see it.”
Lest you think that means he isn’t interested in the role, Morgan clarified his stance.
“Hey, if Guy Ritchie came to me and said, ’You want to do Lobo?’ I’d say, ’Yeah,'” said Morgan.
