Action kingpin and ex-politico ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER is baaack – and it's no April's Fool gag, says industry insiders, as Arnold teams with comics titan titan Stan "The Man" Lee in kick ass new TV series and comix entitled …wait for it … The GOVERNATOR!
The Hollywood Reporter comments that The Terminator star and two-term California gov is working with comic book legend Stan Lee (who launched the Marvel Age of Comics) on a all-new action packed animated TV series and comic book that will mix the real/reel life of Arnold with the "super-human exploits of the characters he's played in films".
Despite the news coming close to the annual April Fools prank fest, industry insiders say this is the real steel deal.
Previously, Schwarzenegger had announced plans for a new television series, details of which he is to officially unveil at international TV buyers and sellers market next week.
"It takes my entire career, if its body building, if it's acting, if its' the governorship and combines it into one," Schwarzenegger said in a video promo. "The Governator is designed to fight crime, to fight natural disasters…this guy will jump and solve the problems."
Schwarzenegger claims the dual-purpose concept was always his "Plan B" since the U.S. Constitution does not allow him – a foreign-born American citizen – to run for President.
Just like Superman who was born on the planet Krypton. And unlike The Man of Steel, Arnold is a "real" person.
