Arnold Schwarzenegger Is 'The Governator' in New Cartoon Series

The action icon gets turned into an animated superhero by the legendary Stan Lee for his first role out of office.
After much speculation, Arnold Schwarzenegger's first role after leaving office will be as an animated superhero called, what else, The Governator, in a new series from legendary comic book impresario Stan Lee.

Andy Heyward will produce this series, which was set to debut on the cover of Entertainment Weekly this Friday. The show will pick-up with Arnold Schwarzenegger leaving the governor's office to become a crime fighter. He will run his operations out of a top secret, high-tech crime fighting center dubbed 'The Arnold Cave', which sits underneath his house in Brentwood.

The Governator has an array of high-tech weapons, a garage full of super vehicles, and a closet full of super suits. He also has a thirteen year old sidekick who happens to be a computer whiz. Together, they will fight off the evil forces of the supervillain group "The G.I.R.L.I.E. Men".

It was not said when or where, or on what channel this new cartoon series will air. More info will be revealed this Friday when Entertainment Weekly hits newsstands everywhere. The cover image featuring The Governator is below.

    @skywise would be fun to see him epically slap Stallone in Expendables 2

    @bawnian-dexeus Ya that one sounds good to me but again it seems like he might be trying to make a statement but maybe i am just imagining things. It might be a balls to the wall action romp with plenty of one liners. But honestly, that Arnld disappeared a long time ago.

    Ever since End of Days.....well, something has changed.

    i hate to say this but i believe those days are over for him, now that he has been in politics he wil probably be trying to make statements or what not. I just dont see us getting the OLD Arnold that we all know and love back. But ya never know. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
