The Governator is a cancelled animated TV series and comic book series created by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stan Lee in 2011. The series was supposed to be a superhero show about Schwarzenegger’s time after leaving office as governor of California, combining personalities from on-screen roles and personal life to base his character. It was inspired by his desire to return to entertainment after serving in office.
A trailer was created and released for the series with an anticipated series premiere in 2012 as a part of his announced return to Hollywood. However, after his affair and scandals in 2011, the series was cancelled before it was released.
It’s unknown exactly how much of the series was created before its cancellation beyond the trailer and some drawing board images published by Entertainment Weekly.
