Tough times for the new Conan!
It's already been a less-than-fantastic few days for the people behind the new Conan the Barbarian movie, which underperformed at the box office this weekend, and now it's about to get worse!
Stan Lee Media Inc. (SLMI),
Here's what Arnie had to say about his upcoming collaboration with X-Men/Spider-Man creator Stan Lee:
“When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool. The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…”
“I love the idea of a control center below my house with a path so that boats and submarines can go right into the ocean. In the cartoon, my house is much closer to the beach than where we live, but, you know, it’s a cartoon.”
And here's what Stan Lee had to say about it:
“The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger."
“We’re using all the personal elements of Arnold’s life. We’re using his wife [Maria Shriver]. We’re using his kids. We’re using the fact that he used to be governor. Only after he leaves the governor’s office, Arnold decides to become a crime fighter and builds a secret high-tech crime-fighting center under his house in Brentwood.”
Here are some other deets that have been revealed about The Governator:
- He'll have a closet filled with "Super Suits" that give him the ability to do "super stunts" and fly
- Sidekicks include "Zeke Muckerberg, the precocious 13-year-old computer whiz who acts as the Governator’s cybersecurity expert."
- One supervillain will be "Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (or G.I.R.L.I.E. Men, for short)."
Ha! We have a feeling this is gonna be REALLY popular when it comes out. Sounds like fun!
Will U watch and/or read The Governator when it comes out next year?
And it's more than deserved!
Comic book legend Stan Lee, who created or co-created Marvel Comics characters such as Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four and Iron Man, received a star on the Walk of Fame on Tuesday.
The 88-year-old's star lies in front of the Live Nation Building on Hollywood Boulevard. He was accompanied by his wife and posing with Spidey's signature move.

This should be good!
Lee said, "It involves superheroes, it involves a very high-concept plot, it's a story such as you never have seen before, and it spans the centuries."
He added that The Seekers is "more than just a comic. It's actually the start of a tremendous franchise" and he hopes that it will eventually turn into a TV series or even a film!
As for working in a digital format, the 87-year-old comics expert said:
"It's thrilling because it's a whole new discipline. But it's a funny thing: Whether it's electronic, whether it's digital, whether it's on paper, whether it's on a television screen, it's the story that counts. You don't let the fact that there's a different area of exhibition change the fact that you need a great story filled with action and surprises and suspense."
And the best part is that MTV will be holding a contest to find an undiscovered writer and comic artist to work on the project. The winners will get a chance to work with Lee to help develop the concept.

Stan Lee, creator of legendary comic book heroes like Spider-Man, the Hulk and others, has been sued by toy manufacturing company Super 7!
Lee recently penned a new comic book entitled Stan Lee's Super Seven which incorporated himself in the story along with a spaceship of aliens he finds in the desert.
But Super 7 is complaining that they own the trademark and filed against Lee in court citing trademark infringement and unfair competition.
Not good — can't Stan just come up with a different "S" adjective?
