I have hope. Hell even Hollywood made Michael Keaton Batman and it was good enough to be watchable.
I know Mamoa is no great actor but I highly doubt anyone in bodybuilding today could have the acting chops to cut it. So trade off is someone that can act well enough to play the part but give up on mass. Even Arnold had a handful of lines in Conan the Barbarian and went well.
Can be worse than Conan the Destroyer (trying to pretend it doens't exist...lol).
BTW - Next year Star Wars is coming out again in 3D Episode 1-6 in order and 1 per year.
Well Mamoa def doesn't have enough mass but we will see how it goes since he does have the look (wicked war face...lol). What I do like is the fact that the new Conan has scars!!! No way in hell Conan can have perfect skin after the shit he has been thru. That was a fault with the Arnold Conan.
