First look at Jason Momoa as Conan is here! Take a look!

The last bout of CONAN news we had for you dealt with Robert Rodriguez's plans to delay RED SONJA until Marcus Nispel's version of the muscle clad barbarian conquers the world (or at least attempts to). Care to take a first peek at the man Nispel has entrusted to do just that?!?

Below you can find the first on-set photo of Jason Momoa as everyone's favorite oiled up badass. Not sure about you, but I'm still not sold Momoa is the right man for the job. Nice enough dude, I'm sure...but filling Arnie's size 12s is no easy feat (or should I say feet)? To me, Momoa looks dressed up for a late season "Highlander" cameo.

Also starring Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols (below), Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Leo Howard, Said Taghmaoui, Bob Sapp, Nonso Anozie, Marco Khan and Raw Leiba - CONAN is the tale of Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village.

The script comes courtesy of Thomas Dean Donnelly, Sean Hood and Joshua Oppenheimer.

CONAN comes out sometime in 2011.

Absolutly!

If Nispel needed visual reference Frank Frazetta's Conan or John Buscema's Conan would be the way to go. Dont know of a Conan fan who could think other wise. But I loved John Millius's Conan! The wardrobe and settings in the first film were incredable! But Millius's film did not follow the Robert E. Howard books all that closely , So hopefully they will do the story line a lil better justice this time around. Excited about this, We'll see

Looks like Conan

I'm sick of people comparing the character to Arnold. Look at Frezetta art, or old Marvel or Dark Horse art depicting Conan. Momoa looks closer to the character than 'roid ape Ahnold. And I doubt he with massacre the dialog with a foot thick foreign accent either.

Not sure. The first disregard for earlier film is that his MOTHER was killed off by James Earl Jones and he was forced into slavery. Is this based on the intervening years not shown in the first film?
