I’ve been a bit iffy on the upcoming Conan the Barbarian reboot. I grew up with the awesome Conan cartoon series and of course have a love for the Arnold flicks. I’m not sure that Jason Momoa can fill Arnold’s shoes and the former Baywatch and Stargate: Atlantis star will need a presence to bring Conan to life.
The smokey teaser trailer they released was a bore, but this character poster with Momoa as Conan is pretty damn cool. He definitely looks the part here, much more so then earlier released photos which made him look too small/puny for the Barbarian. The supporting cast features Avatar‘s Stephen Lang and Hellboy himself Ron Perlman, which lends some credibility to the project until you realize that Rose McGowan is also part of the cast and we are back to square one.
While we wait for the new film we can relive the Arnold classic through the awesomely put together Conan the Barbarian: The Musical.
