Less than a week after being officially announced, "The Governator" has been previewed in a trailer. It starts out as Arnold Schwarzenegger leaves the governor's office and declares in his speech that he won't be back to his acting career.
Claiming that he will only be a private citizen, Arnold slips into his "Super Suits" when a crime threatens the city. The trailer gives a glimpse of the superhero in action as he fights the bad guys in form of evil robots.
Co-created by Stan Lee, "The Governator" is partially based on Arnold's real life. "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," Stan explained. "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."
He will be supported by a team of colorful sidekicks such as Zeke Muckerberg, the precocious 13-year-old computer whiz who acts as the Governator's cybersecurity expert, in fighting crime. Meanwhile, an evil organization called Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (shortened as G.I.R.L.I.E.) will be one of the recurring supervillains.
"And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies...," Arnold additionally gushed about the cartoon. Beside being made a TV show, "The Governator" will also be made into a comic book.
