Conan: First picture released

Official snap of the bare-chested Barbarian

Conan

Conan has finished filming and has celebrated by releasing the first official image of Jason Momoa in its title role.

The film follows Conan’s quest to avenge his dead father and his slaughtered village. We only hope that Bulgaria was nice and warm during filming because the Cimmerian warrior seems to have left his armour at home.

The former model and Stargate: Atlantis actor is the most recent incarnation of Robert E. Howard’s Conan and will be following in the footsteps of a certain beefcake governor of California.

Momoa’s Conan looks suitably chiselled and buff for a vengeance mission and is certainly working a Hugh Jackman-esque raised eyebrow. Although we can't help but feel that his lack of weaponry may leave him at a slight disadvantage.

Best known for his horror remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th, Marcus Nispel has directed the film set for release in 2011.

What do you think of the first pic of this Bare-barian?

      I never thought there could be a man uglier than Arnold. I was wrong.

      For those of us who have read all the original Conan stories by Robert E. Howard, Jason Moma looks much more the part than Arnold ever did. Except of course he should be darker skinned with a Mane of black hair as described in the books. Lets see if the story and the way they portray Conan is true to the text as well. Like the fact that Conan didnt run around in leather loin cloths, he wore armor and employed the weapons needed to get the job done.
