Greg Tito:
Is anyone else a bit concerned that Schwarzenegger is trying to cash in on the fact that he won a democratic election? I don't think that's what the people of California had in mind when they elected him to replace governor Gray Davis back in 2003.

I'm not, I think he just wants to be a comic book superhero, is that surprising?

Who knows? Could be amusing.

This should have stayed as a bad April fools joke. Of well one more ridiculous awful mess to add to the stack of ideas so weird that there just weird.

Video Game? Wow, so he's an idiot, greedy, and hypocrite.

Greedy? Explain please, idiot? I dont think so just not a good politician but then again he served two terms, hypocrite? Explain.

Isn't he involved in the court case to censor games? Seems kinda silly for him to have a game under his own brand if he opposes violent "material". As for the idiot and greedy, this is a fucking dumb idea for a franchise. All the inside jokes about Arnold don't have much comedy staying power. Charlie Sheen tried to use all his jokes and sayings to start a comedy tour. He was met with instant failure and angry fans wanting refunds. As for the greedy, he is clearly doing this as a cash grab. People haven't wanted to see him in films and television for years. He is an aging out of shape action star, and he was never much of an actor. I'm aware he has a fan base, but if he really thinks he's able to launch multiple franchises he is a greedy fool.

Well this is a subjective and biased post based your opinion and trying to reflect your own disagreements to the mass, hpw is capitalizing on something greedy? Its called business, you may want to take business in your local community college so you can understand why people make more money despite being rich you still have to have income so your business investments can maintain themselfs, it would seem you have a subjective pov in this post.

I'll be honest, if I had chosen to vote to put Arnold Schwarzenegger in a position of power then this is exactly what I would have had in mind

Since I never paid attention to what this man said when he was governor, (cause I live in Canada) I can't wait to see his stuff.

Hopefully they'll add all his one liners everytime something happens
"Get to da Choppa!", "I'll be back!", "Do it! Do it Naaaooo!! or my personal favorite: "Remember when I told you I'll kill you last...I Lied!"

He personally backed the bullshit videogames censorship bill in California, which in essence tried to remove the first amendment rights on videogames

That trailer is solid gold! Is it just me or does anyone else picture that synth bit in the middle being played by Keyboard cat?

Listen to it and watch this...

He keeps kids locked in his cybernetic closet.

Well, I have mixed opinions on the subject. Done correctly this could be fairly amusing. Arnie as Ex Machina (well sort of) pretty much. I don't think the idea is intended to be taken seriously, and a lot of it comes down to how well it's actually written in practice.

I'm reminded of Stan Lee's attempts to do Pam Anderson as a super heroine in another comedic/tongue-in-cheek cartoon show/franchise called "Stripperella" which didn't go over too well.

Otherwise, yes Governor Schwartzneggar is the guy who "pulled the trigger" on the legislation currently before the supreme court. You are quite correct that what he is doing is hypocritical, especially given the video game tie-ins of various movies he has been in. He's the guy who pretty much made Predator a franchise, and movies like "Eraser" among others also saw video game treatments.

That said, he has been known to turn out a fairly decent product, and if they are putting his name on this, I'm guessing it will have some redeeming features to it. Of course the kind of self-satire here strikes me as being vaguely similar to "The Last Action Hero" which was not one of his better received movies.

Wow. I really thought it was a joke. It kinda reminds me of that old Chuck Norris animated tv show i watched a few years ago, heh.

Hmmm, I'm not sure if that's it. I get the impression the idea is supposed to be a satire, and it seems to me that they were intentionally trying to make goofy referances to not only his movies, but also well known action fare in general. The whole scene with his battlesuit is taken right from Iron Man, his bike transforms into a light cycle, and he does Neo's bullet dodging stunt.

If this isn't a joke, the idea seems to be to make it goofy and constantly referential. With the right writers, it could work.

He's 'republicans' boning a Kennedy.

Didn't dem retards in Cali realize he was gonna be a bad 'govenator' from just that?

As for this?
Seems like a step up from most of his crap.

Who the hell were those kids in the lab and why are they there?

Greg Tito:

Former Californian governor Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed that he is planning a comic book penned by Stan Lee, plus a TV cartoon series, videogame and film.

Video game? IRONY!

A.S.: Hey gamers, play my game... Gamers? Hello? Hey Maria, how come no one wants to play my game, it's like they all hate me for some reason?

Please tell me someone get the Maria reference.

I know it looks horrible, I know that I shouldn't watch/read/play it, but I really kinda want to...

I have a feeling that it's going to be like those awful B-movies; yeah they suck, but you just feel compelled to keep watching, even if it's to see if it can get any worse...

We've all been making the "I am the Govenator!" jokes for 8 years now. It was only a matter of time before they actually capitalized on that.

I...just watched that whole trailer with a wide-eyed, disbelieving, expression. This is being made? Really? Cripes, Arnie, give it a rest...!

As for the trailer... Captain Planet flashbacks indeed! Everything about the animation and design screamed mid 1990's. Also... Black Eyed Peas for a music choice? Terrible. Not only have I never cared for their music (which is a personal gripe), it didn't fit the tone of the trailer at all. The only thing I am even vaguely looking forward to are some entertaining memes that are sure to spring up due to this.

Not going to lie, that made me smile.

The animation reminds me so much of the kind of Saturday morning cartoons I remember just starting to sneak in, kind of has a Johnny Quest thing going on.

First thing that came to mind when I read "The Governator"

VOTE FOR ME IF YOU WANT TO LIVE!

It's like a flash back to the 90s! They had tons of cartoons like this back then.

Am i the only one (that old to even remember) who get's Biker Mice From Mars vibes form this... thing? The whole..stylization for this cartoon feels like early 90's all together, and that's coming form a Governor of the State that supposedly had huge financial problems?

Please Gods of the Old make it so that whoever pays to watch it get their skull pierced by a 9 inch nail before they manage to breed...

Then again, im sure it will become a cult classic purely on how bad it is.

Don't care about anyone elses opinion.
This is fucking awesome.
All of it.
Awesome.

Hahahahahahahahaha Oh my god, that's the most fantastic thing I've ever seen...

I can't stop banging my head against the desk...I don't know why

If the animation were good, I could forgive this tragedy. Sadly, it is not.

The trailer! It BURNS!!! IT BURNS MY EYES!!!!!

This is a good thing, really. The folks here can work up a surprising amount of dislike for Mr Schwarzenegger, but this is the kind of light entertainment he's always been known for... What I -DON'T- understand is that horrible choice of filler music. Surely there's a high school orchestra they could have bribed to hash something up.

RAWKSTAR:
Don't care about anyone elses opinion.

Awesome.

Pretty much this. Regardless of all the anti-video game shit he's tried to pull, I've never stopped loving Ahnold.

I mean for godsakes, it's standard fair to spell his name like that! You can'thave that and NOT be awesome!

Ashenrook:

I highly doubt that, if anything this should kill the existing Arnold memes.

Anyone remember centurions? That's what I got when he was picking which suit to wear.

That's it, the world is going to Hell in a hand-basket. This is the last straw. I'm going to live out what little time we have left with the Amish.

Hippo man be hypocrite.Wasn't it Arny who was trying to kill violent games?Well,this look violent and scary Arny,what about that bill that bans this?

I kinda wanna hate on this, but if stan lee manages to bring back the badass bad actor we had during the conan series, this could get rather entertaining.
