Here is a couple of photos from Marcus Nispel’s take on Conan the Barbarian, which will storm into our theaters next year, featuring Jason Momoa as Conan.
I think that Momoa looks surprisingly good as the savage barbarian, almost like the Conan in the Marvel comics. It’s clear the he was better suited for the role, than the other two, who was considered for the role in the beginning – Kellan Lutz or Jared Padalecki.
Even though I doesn’t know much about Momoa, more than it sounds that he takes this role seriously and that Nispel might be the weakest link here, I still look forward to “Conan”, or at least to the first teaser, anyway.
I hope that the movie doesn’t turns out to be some type of glamorous adventure flick, like the recent “Prince of Persia” movie. No, I want some crude brutal barbarian action, with limbs and heads being chopped off, all wrapped up by fierce stop-motion sequences and an epic score, similar to “300” or “Gladiator”!
Anyway, this movie will be a new adaptation of the saga about Conan, who sets out to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village. It will also be separated from the Conan movies that were made in the 80’s, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the sword slinging barbarian.
