The Rock says the Lobo project "went away"

Remember how Dwayne Johnson was in talks to play Lobo last year? The movie isn't going to happen anymore. (Ditto a Lobo appearance in the Justice League, obviously.) Johnson told MTV the following in a recent interview:

It was [something that I was going to do] for a minute, but then it kind of just went away, as things happen in Hollywood. For a minute, I was interested in it, but then it went away.

This fits with Warner Bros.'s caution when it comes to their superhero properties lately. (The fact they were considering a Lobo movie at all is also consistent with WB's cluelessness when it comes to their superhero properties.) Justice League is on the backburner now since the JLA script was rumored to be terrible, and WB is waiting to see how Man of Steel does before doing anything else.
