Krypton - Season 2 - Emmett J. Scanlan to Recur as Lobo + First Look Photo

After casting was released yesterday, we now have our first offical look at Emmett J. Scanlan as Lobo in the upcoming second season of Syfy's Krypton.

Emmett J. Scanlan (Constantine, The Fall, Hollyoaks) has been cast as Lobo in the upcoming second season of Syfy's Krypton. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the role of Lobo will be a recurring one.

Lobo is a ruthless bounty hunter who murdered his entire species, he possesses a genius level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare, making him a deadly adversary. Imbued with superhuman strength and virtually immortal, Lobo will keep coming until the job is finished. His word is the only thing Lobo holds sacred; and although he’ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time.

That description sounds pretty true to Lobo’s comic book iteration as well. Lobo was born into the utopian society of Czarnia, but left after wiping out his entire race. Since then, he has worked as one of the universe’s most effective, relentless and violent bounty hunters. Part of what makes him so good at his job is his ridiculous power set. The guy has super strength that rivals Superman’s (and let’s not forget, in Krypton, Superman doesn’t yet exist), plus he has powerful regenerative healing and is essentially immortal. And that’s to say nothing about his practical skills. Lobo is one of the best brawlers in the universe, as well as an excellent tactician.

It remains to be seen how Lobo is portrayed on Krypton, but as his fans know, he isn’t always a villain, and lately has been portrayed as more of an antihero. While Lobo’s not above lying, cheating, stealing and killing, he is a man of his word when it comes to any contract he takes on, and sometimes those contracts are actually to the benefit of the universe.
