Guy Ritchie Decides Cinema Needs More Blue-Skinned Heroes

If there's anything we've established thanks to Avatar, Watchmen, and Arrested Development's Tobias, it's that blue is the sexiest color you can coat your characters in (with the possible side effect of making them look completely ridiculous). Now, even Guy Ritchie's getting in on the act -- he's set his Sherlock Holmes follow-up, and it'll star someone big and blue. Who?

Why, Lobo, a DC Comics bounty hunter with giant muscles, alien dreadlocks, and a Van Dyke beard. That's him on the right. Says Variety:

In the film, [Lobo] is a seven-foot tall, blue-skinned, indestructible and heavily muscled anti-hero who drives a pimped out motorcycle, and lands on Earth in search of four fugitives who are bent on wreaking havoc. Lobo teams with a small town teenaged girl to stop the creatures.

So, Hellboy with a blue filter, then. Excellent.
