Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

April 4, 2011 -

Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is only anti-game when it suits him apparently. Even as the Supreme Court deliberates over the validity of the 2005 anti-gaming law, Schwarzenegger confirms that Stan Lee is making a comic book that will inevitably be made into a video game. The comic book will be called "The Governator" and will be written by the legendary comic book icon Stan Lee. The comic book follows the exploits of a governor who leads by day and fights crime by night as a costumed super hero.

"First will come comic books, then a TV series and after that we will develop the games and then a movie," Schwarzenegger said at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend. "Maybe then we'll be back in Cannes for that."

Many thought the whole thing was an April Fool's joke. Schwarzenegger said that several high-profile actors, "politicians, tycoons and businessmen" will lend their vocal talents to the planned TV show, including Larry King.

So just to recap, games and movies are okay as long as they star Schwarzenegger.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

I'm no fan of Schwarzenegger, but I fail to see where everyone gets off yelling "hypocrisy." He isn't anti-game, he was trying to keep violent games out of the hands of kids. He didn't say they shouldn't be made, he wasn't trying to block their creation or sale to adults. There's no hypocrisy there. Perhaps you should all learn to use a dictionary before joining the rest of the sheep who are yelling a certain word. Honestly, it makes it tough to take anything you say seriously when you don't understand the most basic definition of words.

P.S. Just to help some of you along, it would be hypocritical if Arnold had said something like, "I can't wait for my 15-year-old to play this game."

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Like he did when he marketed Terminator action figures and video games to kids in the 90's? I don't know how many of his other films had this kind of merchandise, but Terminator definitely did, and I remember the commercials showing kids playing the games and playing with the toys.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Hypocrisy at its finest.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra. Hell will stay frozen over for quite a while since the Saints won the Super Bowl.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Forget Schwarzenegger! If Stan Lee wants to make a comic about a government official superhero I vote for.... Mayor Adam West of Quahog!

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Someone needs to inform Leland Yee about this horrible comic book and ensure that it doesn't get into the hands of children.   

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

You forget, the ONLY bad media in Yee's mind (or so he claims) is INTERACTIVE media.  Only once it becomes a computer/video game will it be the evil mind wrecking media for children.

Of course, since it makes use of his butt kissing buddy Arnold, I'm sure he'll claim that there's an exception to every rule.  :/

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Is there any way to contact Stan Lee about this? Leading up to the case, he wrote a wonderful opinion piece comparing the video game controversy to the comic controversy of the 50's, and calling for the law to be struck down. We should write to him reminding him of what he said several months ago, and calling for him to cancel the project due to Arnold's hypocrisy.

And if we can organize a boycott of this comic and any subsequent game, let's do that too.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

Too bad this can't be sent in as evidence to the SCOTUS case.  Computer/video games are the only harmful media because they are interactive... unless involve Arnold himself.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

I don´t know what is worse: the obvious display of hypocresy of Mr. Schwarzenegger by appearing on a media he blalanty attacked during his period or the blalanty unoriginallity of this concept made by Stan Lee.

This is just too ironic.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

the hypocrisy of this is just what Schwarzenegger's opponents need

岩「if Phyllis Schlafly wants to undo Women's Rights, she should lead by example and get back in the kitchen」

岩「…I can see why Hasselbeck's worried about fake guns killing fake people. afterall, she's a fake journalist on a fake news channel」

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

It's almost like he's proud of his hypocrisy. In fact, Stan Lee might even be commenting on it: tyrant by day, freedom-fighter by night.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

I'm guessing that he won't try to restrict this product at all. I wonder what it will be rated by the comic book rating organization.

Re: Schwarzenegger Confirms Stan Lee Project

His youngest child is 14, assuming the game came out today M rated, I'm willing to guess that regardless of the law prohibiting it's sale, that child would get his hands on that game...

Andrew EisenYep, it's why the news media stopped spotlighting numbnuts who run out on the field during sporting events.10/25/2014 - 12:01am
Matthew Wilsonin media research its called the copycat effect. it simply says that if the news covers one mass shooting shooter, it increases the likelihood of another person going on a mass shooting.10/25/2014 - 12:00am
Andrew EisenAgreed. It bugs me that I know the names, faces and personal histories of a bunch of mass shooters but I couldn't tell you the name of or recognize a photo of a single one of their victims.10/24/2014 - 11:51pm
AvalongodAgree with Quiknkold. @Mecha...if that worked we would have figured out how to prevent these long ago.10/24/2014 - 11:32pm
MechaCrashUnfortunately, you have to focus on the perpetrator to figure out the whys so you can try to prevent it from happening again.10/24/2014 - 10:55pm
quiknkoldpoor girl. poor victims. rather focus on them then the shooter. giving too much thought to the monster takes away from the victims.10/24/2014 - 10:15pm
Andrew EisenFor what it's worth, early reports are painting the motive as "he was pissed that a particular girl wouldn't date him."10/24/2014 - 10:12pm
quiknkoldwell then I suck as a man cause I ask for help when necessary :P10/24/2014 - 10:07pm
Technogeek(That said, mostly I was making the smartass evopsych comment because your post seemed like the kind of just-so story that has come to dominate 99% of its usage.)10/24/2014 - 10:04pm
TechnogeekHell, Liam Neeson built his modern career around it. Cultural factors likely play a far greater role than you appear willing to admit.10/24/2014 - 10:03pm
TechnogeekSeriously, though, the idea of "because women are protectors and that's why they never commit school shootings" is, at best, grossly overreductive. There's nothing inherently feminine about being willing to kill in order to protect one's offspring.10/24/2014 - 10:03pm
MechaCrashThe "toxic masculinity" thing refers to how you have to SUCK IT UP AND BE A MAN because seeking help is seen as weakness, which means you suck at manliness, so it builds and builds and builds until something finally snaps.10/24/2014 - 10:01pm
quiknkoldthere, I'm done. And thats what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown10/24/2014 - 9:54pm
quiknkoldand I am not spouting Evopsych, technogeek. tbh I never heard the phrase till you said it. I'm going off my observations.10/24/2014 - 9:54pm
quiknkoldmoreover, the guy who did this isnt even white. He was native american according to the news report I read. Also that he went for a specific target. That's a much different picture than a certain Sandy Hook guy who will not be named10/24/2014 - 9:53pm
quiknkoldbut I am also certain nobody in their right mind is committing these shootings singing the Machoman song. these are sick individuals who have given up on life10/24/2014 - 9:51pm
Technogeekevopsych lol10/24/2014 - 9:49pm
quiknkoldWhen you suffer from mental illness, youre more likely to go by instinct. yes. I came off as sexist.10/24/2014 - 9:46pm
quiknkoldmore on somthing they are fixated on. Post Partum Depression is an example. This is why a woman is less likely to go off on a rampage.10/24/2014 - 9:44pm
quiknkoldA Mother will fight to protect her children or her mate. This does not mean they are any different then males when it comes to destruction and mental illness. A Woman has just enough opportunity to be sick like a man. The difference is they will focus10/24/2014 - 9:43pm
