Arnold Returns In Stan Lee’s “The Governator”

Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to reboot his acting career, and he’s starting by partnering with Stan Lee to create a cartoon superhero based on his “Governator” persona.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Arnold outlines the project:

“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…”

In addition to the cartoon, the Governator will turn also turn up in a comic book series—both of which will be co-developed by Stan Lee.

“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Lee says of the semi-fictional character. “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.”

Arnold will also have a fleet of super vehicles, super suits and sidekicks like a 13-year old computer whiz. He will be fighting villains like an evil organization known as Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (or G.I.R.L.I.E. Men).

And yeah, April 1st is tomorrow so this is really happening. It sounds completely absurd to be honest, but I don’t know…maybe it could be funny because it’s so absurd. Kind of like Commando.
