Arnold Schwarzenegger has explained the reason behind the development issues on The Legend of Conan. The character of Conan the Barbarian has been around since 1932 when Robert E. Howard created him for a story in Weird Tales magazine. In the ’80s, Conan received newfound popularity when Schwarzenegger portrayed the character for two films; Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer.
Conan has appeared in a number of TV shows, comics, and games over the years. The character was even included in a remake of Conan the Barbarian starring Jason Momoa in the titular role, although the film received less than favorable reviews. A third film in the Conan series starring Schwarzenegger has long thought to be in development, which would show Conan as an aged king. Schwarzenegger has been updating fans for years about the development of The Legend of Conan, and there were even rumors that the film could start a shared universe revolving around Howard’s characters. In 2017 it was revealed that The Legend of Conan wasn’t going to be happening, although later in the month it was announced that the film was still alive and that a Conan TV show was also in the works. Now two years later, Schwarzenegger has given fans yet another update.
