I know, you thought I was going to say ‘terminated’ rather than ‘on hold.’ And I really want to. Does Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s divorce and BabyGate mean that we won’t have to suffer The Governator? The answer to that question is unclear, but for the time being the former Governor and reactivated actor has a couple small things to deal with, and film projects including The Terminator 5 and Cry Macho have been put on hold.

Briefly: As the giant ‘WTF?’ of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s animated series The Governator continues to crawl towards release, we’re getting a few new details. We know that the icon is returning to entertainment with the show, which follows a politician-turned-superhero, that the show was created with the input of Stan Lee, and that it will eventually lead to a 3D feature film.

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s first big move back into entertainment after finishing out his term as governor of California is the animated TV series and superhero comic book project The Governator, which is being developed with Stan Lee. The show will be exactly what the title suggests: Arnold voices and is the the design basis for a superhero that fights bad guys and gridlocked state legislatures. (Or something like that.)

But over the last couple weeks word emerged that his first new project would be a TV series. That soon was adjusted to an animated TV series.
