Arnold Schwarzenegger will be cartoon “Governator”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: He has played comic book-worthy superheroes on screen for decades. So it only makes sense that larger-than-life actor-celebrity Arnold Schwarzenegger would receive his own comic property.
Schwarzenegger is collaborating with legendary comic book creator Stan Lee for a comic and animated TV program modeled after a new hero, The Governator, EW.com reports.
“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger said in an interview. “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…”
This new project wouldn’t be out in theaters until next year, giving animators the chance to design the TV show and comic. But Lee told EW that it will utilize several elements from Schwarzenegger’s personal and professional life.
“I love the idea of a control center below my house with a path so that boats and submarines can go right into the ocean,” Schwarzenegger claims. “In the cartoon, my house is much closer to the beach than where we live, but, you know, it’s a cartoon.”
And it’s a cartoon we can’t wait to see!
