Deadshot & Lobo DC Comics Movies No Longer In Development?

DC Films is rumored to be no longer considering a Lobo solo movie or the Suicide Squad spinoff Deadshot film with Will Smith.

DC Comics adaptations Deadshot and Lobo movies are rumored to no longer be in the cards at DC Films. Warner Bros.' attempt to launch a superhero cinematic universe of their own has not quite gone according to plan. Following the release of three divisive yet profitable DC Films, Wonder Woman arrives and looked like the turning point for the franchise. Unfortunately, the movie was followed by Justice League - another DC Movie that split viewers, but also underperformed at the box office. In the aftermath of Justice League, major changes are coming to the DC film franchise.

Although upwards of two dozen different DC films were reported as having entered development over the past year or so, a number of those projects are expected to fall by the wayside now that Walter Hamada is taking over DC's movie division. In fact, two such reported DC projects may have already fallen off the tracks.

Prior to Hamada being announced as the new president of DC Films, DiscussingFilm reported that Will Smith will not be starring in a Deadshot solo movie, with Suicide Squad 2 set to be his next DC movie project instead. Building on this rumor, Mario Robles of ElFanboy and Splash Report gave some additional details. Not only does it appear that Deadshot has been abandoned, but the on-again/off-again Lobo movie is apparently dead as well (for now). You can read their tweets on the matter, below:
