This past weekend it was revealed that former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger was attached to “an international TV series”, the details of which were expected to be announced at Cannes next week. Well, the speculation has ended early as EW’s Popwatch got exclusive word on the project, an animated superhero series entitled The Governator.
“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” says Marvel legend and comic book icon Stan Lee, who is developing the project alongside Arnie. “We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life… 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.”
Supporting The Governator in his battle against the evil Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (G.I.R.L.I.E. Men) is an array of vehicles and super suits, along with a 13-year-old sidekick who acts as Arnie’s cybersecurity expert. The animated series is expected to arrive next year. Hey, at least it’s not Turboman.
