First Look: Jason Mamoa As Conan

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.

    I don't get no Conan vibe. Cavemen vibe sho' nuff, but Conan? Naah.

    He's awfully well-coiffed. Did they have hair salons back in the Hyborian Age?

  • TwinPistols

    He looks no less like Conan than Ah'nold did. In fact, I'd say he looks better as Conan than the Governator.

    A little disappointed that they didn't go with a darker hair color, but with his skin tone, I can understand that might not have looked as good. I can't wait for the film.

    He has came a long way… from playing Ronan on StarGate Atlantis. And I must say he looks good!!!

    I agree he looks good and he does fit the image of conan well….sorry to see the dreads go they were really hot, it must have taken him years to grow them….shows his true dedication to his art that he was willing to shed them for the role.

    Cant wait for the movie….I would love to be at the premier….
