Principal photography on the new Conan the Barbarian movie has just finished at Bulgaria's Nu Boyana studios. To celebrate, NB have released the first official image of Jason Momoa as Conan himself.
Let's compare with the words of Robert E Howard... "A tall, strongly made youth"? Check. Momoa is 6'4". He's 30 though, so "youth" is stretching it.*
"Hard, rangy lines... broad heavy shoulders... powerful frame"? All seems fair. Momoa is bigger here than he was in Stargate: Atlantis, although not as big as Arnold Schwarzenegger was in 1982, which should mean that he can move. "Skin brown from outland suns"? Check. Or at least, from Hawaii. "Eyes blue and smouldering"? Check (we think - are they blue?) "A shock of tousled black hair"? It's brown, but otherwise okay. No Pantene Pro V in Cimmeria, and Momoa's trademark dreads have been gone for a couple of years.
