Schwarzenegger, 63, the star of ‘Terminator’ movie series, is now working with comic book legend Stan Lee for his new character ‘Governator’ which will be on an animated TV series and in a comic book.

“The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world.” Schwarzenegger told EW, incidentally his first press interview after he left his office last January 3.

“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger said in a video interview at EW.

According to EW, ‘The Governator‘ will be a mixture of the real life character of Arnold Schwarzenegger and his character hero in his films such as Terminator, True Lies, among others.

“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Stan Lee was quoted as saying, noting that personal facts of the former California governor will be used including his wife Maria Shriver and their children.

Apparently, ‘Governator‘ will not be released within this year as the comic is still under development but Stan Lee told EW that in this project, Schwarzenegger decided to be a crime buster after his term as governor of California.

Mr. Lee added that Governator will be fighting against evil forces including GIRLIE (Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons), an organized crime syndicate.
