Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to put his nickname, “The Governator” to more tangible use. The action star turned California governor announced Wednesday that he is co-developing a cartoon and comic book series with comic legend Stan Lee (Spider-Man creator). The series will be entitled, of course, “The Governator,” and it will combine Schwarzenegger’s big screen heroics with real life antics.
Via Huffington Post: Lee broke down the inspiration behind the series to Entertainment Weekly, and gave some insight into what Arnold fans can expect:
“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Lee told the magazine. “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.”
And it’s going to be a pretty impressive crime-fighting center, indeed; Schwarzeneger enthused about his cartoon self’s impressive array of aquatic transportation.
“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,” he told EW.
Are you excited or would you rather just see the real Scharzenegger as opposed to a comic or cartoon?
