With Warner Bros. backing and David Yates at the helm, this movie has the potential to be a blockbuster hit. They'll at least be on the right track if they distance themselves from the old Tarzan movie format. The assembled cast is good except for the lead role. Alexander Skarsgard does not fit the image of Tarzan. This role needs a more athletically muscular, ruggedly handsome actor with darker complexion and black hair.
Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale is powerful fantasy about a young man with high intelligence and great physical
strength and speed. He was possessed with instincts and senses of a wild beast. With these endowments he rose above the other creatures of the jungle and ruled his environment. This is what should be dramatized and brought to movie audiences.
