Schwarzenegger’s Comeback Role: The Governator [VIDEO]

    April 4, 2011

When Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected the 38th Governor of California, many questioned if he would ever return to acting. Well, we now know the answer: he’s coming back. They’ll be a slight twist with his first role, it’ll be a cartoon called “The Governator”.

Just today, Arnold tweeted a link to the official trailer for the series. You can see the trailer above, be sure to leave a comment below with your thoughts on it.

The cartoon is just a single element of a multi-platform rollout, produced by comic legend Stan Lee, Andy Heyward and Schwarzenegger himself, which also includes a comic book, Internet delivered-content and a 3D feature length film. Recently Heyward told Deadline that, “it all starts with a 52-episode series that will feature the voice and animated image of Schwarzenegger as a superhero bent on beating the bad guys and the forces of evil.”

It’ll be interesting to see how the producers use social media to push these projects, as the cartoon series doesn’t even debut until late 2012. Can they make this series go viral before it even launches? Tell us what you think in the comments section.
