A few years back prior to any information being released about the CONAN film starring Jason Momoa there was a rumor going around that WWE pro wrestler and Son in law to Vince McMahon was up for the role...something I'm glad did not happen...everyone hated that guy he was the biggest heel going. Even when he and Shawn Michaels tagged up a few times. But they did have some really epic matches those two. Anyway to perpetuate the rumor and maybe perhaps he was even hinting to Hollywood he wanted the part he donned barbarian rags and furs and a crown...evoking the King Conan image made famous by Arnold. I have to say being a fan of all things BARBARIAN and CONAN related as well as a reformed WWE fan...I kind of liked his KING of KINGS persona...he did look bad ass. But I'm glad they didn't use him. The MOTORHEAD KING OF KINGS song...BOW DOWN TO THE KING!!! Lemmie would make a cool BARBARIAN!!! They should call him ...he's got that Ben Davidson REXOR look about him...Of course I'm sure Ben would win in an arm wrestle.
Jesus Angel Ortega Gomez de Segura sent me this link...for an interesting video he put together himself. He had a visit with Conan and escaped with his life. I don't speak Spanish and wish he'd included subtitles but maybe one day he'll edit those in...meantime ENJOY...
Ok we've covered this one already and noted that when SKAAR first appeared as a regular in the Marvel Universe he was jokingly referred to as CONAN due to his similar stature hair do and big sword. But Marvel now has their TV show HULK and the agents of S.M.A.S.H I have not delved any further into it to find out what SMASH means. But I do know " HULK SMASH!!! " So here we have some snippets and stills from the cartoon series and some promo spot shots of the crew. Take a look for yourself....does SKAAR ( Who is supposed to be the son of the HULK in the comic books ) look like CONAN? Yeah I guess so. The cartoon ignores the son of HULK concept so that completely negates that he is an earth elemental and can literally with will power raise a mountain with a thought and drop it on someone as well as convert his body into a solid impervious rock like state as well as benefit from having the size and physical power of the HULK. No doubt about it if used properly SKAAR can be a dangerous customer. But the cartoon is missing the mark on this one. They should cover the whole PLANET HULK story into a flashback and properly give SKAAR an origin. That's just my opinion.
I stumbled across a new comic book series written and created by Josh S. Heneman with a familiar feel to it but a great deal different than what we are used to. The nearest I can figure...because I have yet to purchase the comic book itself but plan to. But enjoy these random web pictures I grabbed to share with you. I plan to review the comic series as soon as I can acquire some copies. As of this writing I don't know how long it's been out but it looks like a fun read and I kinda like the idea of Bigfoot running around with a broadsword whacking and hacking things up...but it looks to me in some panels he does that with his bare hands as well...Enjoy.
