‘The Governator’ trailer: Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as cartoon superhero (VIDEO)

The Governator Trailer

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back!

The first trailer for “The Governator,” Arnie’s first post-government Hollywood job, has been released. Check out the 63-year-old bodybuilder-turned-actor-turned-politician as a cartoon superhero version of himself in the video clip after the jump.

According to the former governor of California, he picked “Governator” as the name of his cartoon hero because he found the moniker “cool.” “When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” he said. Arnie added that “The Governator” is the combination of “the world of politics and the movie world,” both of which he has been a part of.

One of the people behind the project is the legendary Stan Lee. But “The Governator” won’t just be an animated cartoon and a comic book series; Arnie will end the venture with a live-action 3-D movie, scheduled to be released in 2013.
