Stan Lee was supposed to create, write, and star in a comic book called Super Seven. It was supposed to a partnership with Archie Comics about a group of seven aliens who are befriended by Lee and get the Pa Kent treatment after their spaceship crash lands on planet Earth. The comic was supposed to be turned into a web series in a collaboration with A Squared Entertainment, the creators of Warren Buffett’s Secret Millionair’es Club, Martha Stewart’s Martha and Friends, and Gisele Bündchen’s Gisele and the Green Team. But legal issues permanently stalled the comic book and web show before it ever started.
Now, Lee is once again working with Archie Comics and A Squared Entertainment on a new entertainment property with Arnold Schwarzenneger. It’s called The Governator and this one’s supposed to have a comic book, cartoon TV show, 3D feature film, and a web series, too.
The multi-platform entertainment property stars an animated Schwarzenegger who turns from politics to the kind or private life to which Bruce Wayne is accustomed, meaning the vigilante crime fighting kind. In addition to the Austrian Oak, the story will feature an impossibly young-looking Larry King, Arnold’s real-life wife Maria Shriver, the couple’s children, and the former Governor of California embracing nearly every parody of himself and finding a way to listen to the Black Eyed Peas while dispensing justice without having to deal with all the bureaucratic red tape.
No word yet on what the online exclusive components of the franchise will entail, but we’ll find out in 2012, when The Governator is set to debut.
