Lobo, the main man, heading to a cinema screen Avatar style as PG-13?

Joel Silver has his eye on DC Comics' Lobo, the intergalactic biker with a fowl mouth and Gene Simmons-styled eye makeup.

However, the movie version of Lobo might be slightly more family-friendly than his original comics incarnation, according to Silver.

"I think it's structured now as a PG-13 movie," Silver told a group of reporters, according to SCI FI Wire. "I think we've done it that way, but I love it."

Some of the reckless Czarnian bounty hunter's behavior, such as his impromptu ripping off of Starfire's top in the DC series "52," for instance, would certainly need to be toned down for a PG-13 rating, but Silver thinks the technology already exists to bring the character to life visually. And he's looking to James Cameron's work for the answer.

"When any of you see 'Avatar,' see pieces of it, the technology is genius, the stuff that's out there that is doable is fantastic," he noted.

The story for the proposed film is already in its early stages, and bringing it into production sounds like something Silver wants make happen in the near future.

"Lobo is one I'm very excited about maybe doing one day, hopefully soon," Silver said. "I think we can do it. We've got a script we like."

Now I love a bit of Lobo mayhem, but a PG-13! Sure it will get the people in but you miss the ultra violence that the character is all about. Still it would be great to see him in hyper realistic 3D.

Do you feel Lobo could work as a PG-13 film?
