Your First Look at Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym in Conan


Now THAT is one angry, mean looking S.O.B. Check your very first look at “Avatar’s” Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym, the heavy in “Conan the Barbarian”.

That less-than-thrilling teaser trailer notwithstanding, I’m still anxious to see what they do with the reboot. Call me an optimist, if you must, but I haven’t given up yet. Hopefully the filmmakers will hear all the snickering and negative reaction to their debut teaser and realize they have to come bigger and harder and more badass with the next trailer. And so, if the next trailer is still lackluster, then you’ll know this movie is doomed. Until August 19, 2011 comes around, heeeeere’s Khalar!

A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Starring Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Jason Momoa, Leo Howard, Saïd Taghmaoui, Bob Sapp, Nonso Anozie, Marco Khan, Raw Leiba, and directed by Marcus Nispel.

    Stephen Lang is rapidly becoming a Ron Perlman…always badass and always making anything he’s in that much better just by his presence! I’m still looking forward to Conan, I want to see Momoa do well. I’m a Stargate fan and he was about the best thing in Atlantis.

      Yeah and Perlman is in this too!! How sweet is that! And yeah I like Momoa as Conan and agree he was the best thing about Atlantis.

    By Crom! That looks cool, and Stephen Lang is a total badass! Def need to see another trailer. Saw the teaser during Battle: Los Angeles and my friends looked at me and said ‘thats it?’ concerning the trailer. They (as well as all of us) were expecting a complete badass trailer. Hope it comes soon.

    • Dedpool

      Probably get that soon.

    They totally transformed him! I’m a really big fan of Lang’s. He really is a chameleon,. Different from each role to the next. As the obnoxious Freddy Lounds in Manhunter and the cowardly Ike Clanton in Tombstone. Gung Ho Col. Quaritch in Avatar and now Zym in Conan. Great actor. I hope this is as bad ass as I want it to be.
