It seems that 2016 is the year of the anti-hero. We started our year with Deadpool. Later this week we'll see Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad, take to the big screen. In between, we even got reintroduced to The Punisher on Netflix's Daredevil series. Clearly people love the anti-hero.

If Suicide Squad is a hit, and it's expected to be one financially (although the critical response has been less than stellar), then you can expect that Hollywood will continue to not only mine comic books for additional material but more specifically, comic book anti-heroes. Here are a few suggestions for some who could use their own movie.

Lobo

Lobo

A movie based on Lobo is probably still more likely that not at this point. A couple years back there way a Lobo film project in development that would have starred Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the title role. While that idea fell apart, it hasn't stopped others from expressing interest in the part. Danny Trejo has more recently hinted that he'd take the job if it were open. As an interstellar biker who works as a mercenary and bounty hunter, there's surely a screenwriter someplace who could have fun writing this script.
