First Look: Jason Mamoa As Conan

by  in Comic News, Movie News Comment

Although we’ve seen some blurry photographs from the set of director Marcus Nispel’s upcoming Conan adaptation, we’ve yet to see anything official. That all changes now, as the first fully clear shot of Jason Mamoa as the Cimmerian warrior has found its way online courtesy of Nu Boyana Film Studios.

According to Nu Boyana, filming on Conan has wrapped. The movie is set for release at some point in 2011. Conan stars the aforementioned Mamoa, Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Saïd Taghmaoui and Rose McGowan.

Personally, I’m digging Mamoa’s look. I know little to nothing about him as an actor, but from a visual standpoint, I definitely get the Conan vibe from looking at this picture. We’ll see if he can bring the appropriate attitude and personality to back up the brawn, but I’m cautiously optimistic.
