Created by Robert E Howard, a headliner of her own Marvel Comics series throughout the 1970s, the popular comic book heroine received a solo film in 1985 starring Brigitte Nielsen and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Dynamite Entertainment currently holds the rights and publishes its own Red Sonja comics.

“We have been waiting for the right time for this remake,” Lerner wrote in a statement, “and with the success of Wonder Woman, the audience has spoken. They want female heroes.”
