Well, Hemswroth is 6'3" and supposedly hadn't trained before he was cast. He later complained about all the muscle he gained and how he put on "too much." They may have well have casted Triple H, if that were the case. Or blew Hemsworth up to be Triple H size. I am seeing it tomorrow. Heard he looks huge in some scenes and not to big in others. Given the amount of time he had to train, I don't think he could have gotten much bigger. And in reality, he only needs to look bigger than everyone else, which he is, including Chris Evans and the other Avengers cast.

Agreed. I don't want to see the movie, but they should have gotten a bigger guy or made him into a bigger guy.

So long as the physique is in the right ball park, I think you'll get a better film with a competent actor than some physically more impressive plank of wood.

For example, I don't think Troy was a great film, but Brad Pitt made a good Achilles. He can't weigh more than a buck-seventy, but he's athletic, he moves well and he actually sounds like he might be the character. I like Arnold, but he was laughable in Conan. "...Und hear de lamentations ov de vimmin."

The Conan actor's physique looks OK to me; I'll reserve full judgement until I see it.
Not to mention, Brad Pitt was a physical specimen in that movie!!

Except his legs: apparently they used a body double because his own pins weren't up to it. Unless that's an urban myth. But yes, he was in terrific shape. I particularly like the way he casually disposes of Nathan Jones at the start.

As do I. Jones is a fellow aussie, and a fantastic specimen himself at 6 foot 8!!
But I have seen some of his early Pride fighting career, and he is NOT a fighter. At all.

It's great he got a break into acting on the big screen - and
why the **** isn't he playing Thor or Conan??!!

Yeah he would make a good Tarzan.

Hollywood probably wanted a stud instead of a monster because of some demographic study that revealed 52% more women would go to the box office if Joe Studly blah, blah, blah.

Maybe Conan will find a Coke bottle in the movie and a sequel will be demanded, revealing that the past is really the future, and the future the past...and Conan travels to a distant, post-apocalyptic land where Coke products are everywhere.

I still don't know why the Aussie Behemoth isn't playing one or both of these characters.

Not creative. It would be copying another movie (Planet of the Apes)...which is all Hollywood is capable of doing anymore.
