I've always been fond of the Tarzan character!
And why not?
He's tall, good looking, immensely powerful, highly intelligent and his life is rooted in the wild.
So, I got excited when I heard that they are attempting to put together a new Tarzan film.
Then I saw the actors they were considering to play Tarzan!
My daughter would label them as 'pretty boys'.
I find myself wondering if the film makers even bothered to read the book that their film is going to be based on?
What do you think Tarzan would look like?
Here are some of the things that Tarzan can do:
- He can fight toe-to-toe with a full grown male gorilla and come out victorious.
- He can climb and swing through the trees while carrying a 200 lb. man.
- He can pick up and carry a 600 lb. African lion.
It seems to me that if we are to take these feats as facts, for Tarzan, then Tarzan must resemble some of the strongest men alive. Not quite like the huge bodybuilders of today, whose bulk is artificially bloated with the plethora of dangerous drugs they take, but still his muscular bulk would be formidable.
We have someone, right here on DA, who has a handle on what Tarzan would really look like.
The great artist Joe Jusko.
