Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed he’s still interested in making another Conan the Barbarian movie in a video posted to Twitter to promote Marvel’s new Conan comic.
It’s a movie that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Let’s do it.

In a recent interview with Total Film (via Comic Book), Samuel L. Jackson stated the reason Nick Fury still uses a pager in Avengers: Infinity War “gets addressed in an interesting sort of way.”
I guess we might figure out that she can do things that nobody else can do. She can time travel so maybe she can get ahead or behind or whatever, and figure out what all that is. The fact I have the pager 20 years later - it gets addressed in an interesting sort of way.
