    That got me. Well done!

    I would prefer to see someone who actually looks like he'd stick and axe right through you. So if Rip is too busy... maybe someone retiring from strong man. I'm sure Eddie hall would love to follow arnold into this once his boxing match is done...

    The guys who did the last Conan with Jason Momoa are show running. I don't hate Momoa and didn't hate him in the role.

    I just hope there's lots of nudity.

    I didn't much like that movie either, though. I haven't read much of Howard's original Conan stuff but he strikes me as a sort of total-package ubermensch. Smart, strong, fit, charismatic, good looking, etc. Very hard to cast something like that well. Smart is the only quality you can potentially get away with the actor not measuring up in, and a lack of that can still show no matter how much you try to use the writing to bolster it. With Netflix and their obvious sensibilities overseeing things, there's also the inevitable softening of the source material's edges, which are a big part of its charm.

    I think you need someone who looks unusually strong like Arnold did. Not just a big guy like Momoa but someone unusual.

    When I die I go before Crom! And when I can’t squat 5s he will cast me out of Valhalla.
