Get your first official look at Conan!

06.22.2010

CONAN just wrapped production in Bulgaria and to mark the end of filming, the first official shot of Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian was released online. It's not the first time we've seen Momoa as Conan (see these leaked photos from the set) but it is the first non-blurry official pic. I was hoping for something a little more epic; maybe something with a sword, hero pose...you know the drill. But we'll have to settle for Momoa giving us his best stink face. What do you think? Do you buy Momoa as a young Arnold Schwarzenegger?

YES.

Looks great! Much closer to the source material than Arnold ever did. I'm glad they chose an actual actor as opposed to a wrestler.

Some of you guys act like the original second film didn't suck. I don't really expect any different from this. PG-13, dumbed down, shitfest. Is this being directed by Stephen Sommers by any chance (that hack)

He's definitely got the look, I think..(though better suited for another Robert E. Howard character King Kull). BTW, what would be the "look" actually?Versions by the Marvel Comics artists?such as, John Buscema? Barry Windsor Smith? Ernie Chan? Alfredo Alcala?or the look of Conan from films past i.e. Arnold Schwarzenegger? It's open to new interpretation as I see it.

You people suck

Obviously most people complaining about this don't know a damn thing of the character outside of the Conan movies Ahnold did, or whatever 'tarded cartoons they grew up watching. Remember guys, this isn't He-man, Conan isn't a Steroid ape, and you come off as stupid as the people who think Superman is "Kewl" in a trenchcoat.

I've read all of Howard's Conan stories - but that's besides the point. Apparently the point is that you're the balls, and everyone else here sucks. You should go to a better site, with members who are of your caliber. Don't let us waste your time.

This guy doesn't looks more like supporting cast then Conan. But I suppose this could work. Need a trailer to see him in action.

Who knows at this point. I don't have any faith in Nispel. The actor could do a fine job. I'm willing to accept most anyone for Conan. It's the filmmaking and tone that I'm more concerned with.

Hmmm

The hair doesn't scream Conan. It's arguably a major detail to the look of classic Frazetta-Conan to have the choppy bowl cut bangs.

That detail is inherited from Howard himself. But I agree - its a departure. I'm just hoping they don't try to humanize him - he's pretty one-dimensional; in a Kickass Howard kind of way.

I can't accept Conan as anything but a giant Nordic type, just like I can't accept anyone voicing Darth Vader except James Earl Jones. Momoa looks more like Tarzan, and nothing like Conan.

Asgardians were Nordic; Conan was a Cimmerian. You're basing your authenticity on an adaptation, not the source material. James Earl Jones as Vader - fine, I get that, as that IS the source material. Arnold isn't even Nordic - he's Austrian. I hate to pull a nerd card on you, but with all due respect - your whining is steeped in several strains of FAIL.

He's certainly built for the part, and looks like I imagine a younger Conan looking, so that's good.

But this picture doesn't show all that much, so hopefully the whole thing can deliver.

great photograph of

not much. Conan isn't sporting a chinstrap goatee, so that's good. Really, if you are "forming an opinion" based on this picture - you are really just regurgitating your old gut instinct.

Is this the guy I would have picked? No. But whatever - maybe he'll do a good job. For people who are bemoaning that he's not a man of Arnold's size, I have 2 important points:

1. Even in today's world of power lifting, men of Arnold-heyday size don't grow on trees.

2. Do you see that tricep -

2. Do you see that tricep - I'm guessing this guy can outdo your close-grip bench press by about 1 set of plates at least.

I'm not a huge fan of this guy's work - but I'm not going to write this project off, before I even get to see a full trailer.

Far more than one picture.

1)Conan looks like a doll.

2) The director sucks ass, and has yet to make a good movie. And his last film in this genre was the painfully bad Pathfinder.

3) The producers of this film are dumb asses. Their first choice for director was Brett Ratner, and after Ranter turned them down they ended up settling for the king of shitty horror remakes, Marcus Nispel.

This production was doomed from the start. I'm sure it'll have a nifty trailer, but there is no

I don't know.

The look is OK, but I hope they go in the direction of the Starz series 'Spartacus: Blood & Sand' - that would make it a kick-ass film.

Looks well enough. Arnie was a bit big for the part and this is a bit closer though some could argue he may be jsut a bit to small
