Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed reports that he is teaming with Stan Lee for an animated series called The Governator. Here’s what the actor/former California Governor told EW:
“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool…The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…”
EW also spoke with Stan Lee:
“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger…We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life. We’re using his wife [Maria Shriver]. We’re using his kids. We’re using the fact that he used to be governor. Only after he leaves the governor’s office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood.”
