In an unprecedented collaboration, A Squared Entertainment (A2), a full-service brand entertainment company, Archie Comics, a leading producer of comic book entertainment, and Stan Lee, founder, chairman and chief creative officer (CCO) of POW! Entertainment (OTCQB: POWN) join forces with world-famous actor, public servant and international icon Arnold Schwarzenegger to deliver the next 21st Century global superhero from Stan Lee Comics: The Governator.Â Drawing on Schwarzenegger’s long history of doing the unexpected and redefining industries, The Governator challenges the status quo by packing current topics with action and humor into a worldwide, multiplatform entertainment property, which includes a television series, 3D movie, comic book series and consumer products program. The groundbreaking new property was unveiled today at MIPTV in Cannes during a press conference with Schwarzenegger in attendance.
The Governator stars an animated Schwarzenegger just days after he has left his post as Governor of California. Not content with simply retiring and always striving to make the world a better place, Schwarzenegger decides to take on the global villainy and 21st century disasters that no one else is equipped to handle. With an elite team of teens to help him, he creates a secret identity beneath his home–so secret that even his wife, Maria, and kids are unaware. Using cutting-edge gear, custom-made “super suits,” state-of-the-art weapons and vehicles, he will combat evil in all of its forms as The Governatorâ€¦a superhero living a double life, who’s also a devoted family man who needs to make it home for dinner every night.Â To view the full action-packed three-minute trailer for “The Governator”, go HERE.
