Mickey Rourke was originally up for the role of Conan’s father in the new Conan film. Without any news on why, he dropped out to be replaced by Ron Perlman in the eleventh hour. Honestly either one would be great in the movie, and both seem to fit the part. Although Rourke’s menacing growl would have made the trailer better, Perlman has at least already been in the Conan universe. He was the voice of Conan in the video game. Regardless the wait can’t be long enough to see if this turns out to be a great film, or a great disappointment.
