Arnold Schwarznegger's First Project Since Leaving Office Revealed


He’s been a famous body builder. He’s been a killer cyborg from the future. He’s been Governor of California. And now, in this week’s exclusive cover scoop , Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals his plans for the next phase of his extraordinary career: He’s going be a cartoon superhero, known as The Governator. “When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger, 63, tells EW in his first press interview since leaving office last January. “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…” 
The animated TV show and comic book, being co-developed by no less a superhero authority than Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee (pictured, right), won’t be out until next year, but this week EW offers an exclusive early look at Arnold’s cartoon alter-ego. “The Governator is going to be a great superhero, but he’ll also be Arnold Schwarzenegger,” Lee says of the semi-fictional character. “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.”
Along with the Arnold Cave, the Governator will have a fleet of super vehicles at his disposal, a closet full of “Super Suits” that allow him to fly and perform other super stunts, and a team of colorful sidekicks, such as Zeke Muckerberg, the precocious 13-year-old computer whiz who acts as the Governator’s cybersecurity expert. Naturally, there will also be recurring supervillains — including an evil organization called Gangsters Imposters Racketeers Liars & Irredeemable Ex-cons (or G.I.R.L.I.E. Men, for short). For Schwarzenegger, the cartoon is obviously the next best thing to being President. “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,” he tells EW. “In the cartoon, my house is much closer to the beach than where we live, but, you know, it’s a cartoon.”

John's two cents: I may or may not watch the series. Thoughts?

Justice League Movie To Stand On Its Own


Details on a Justice League featue film have been rapidly developing ever since the story broke yesterday that such a project was back on Warner Bros. schedule. Now, has a further update from Superman director Zack Snyder, explaining that the ensemble film will not bear a link to either his project or to the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises. 

‘It doesn’t [connect]," Snyder told the site on the red carpet for the London premiere of Sucker Punch, "Like what Chris Nolan is doing and what I’m  doing with 'Superman', what they’ll do with 'Justice League' will be it’s own thing with its own Batman and own Superman. We’ll be over here with our movie and they’ll kinda get to do it twice, which is kind of cool."

One key project that seems to be temporarily left out of the equation is this summers Green Lantern which still could, foreseeably, tie-in to the nascent Justice League film. Likewise, with recent word that WB will reboot the Batman franchise following the release of The Dark Knight Rises, it's still possible that the team picture could build up through cross-released franchise entries, a la Marvel Studios' lead-in to The Avengers.

John's two cents - I'll see it but they should push it back a year or two.

Review: Sucker Punch (***)

Sucker Punch is about a girl named Babydoll (Played by Emily Browning) who after her mother dies, her abusive stepfather puts her in a mental institution. There She Meets Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Rocket (Jena Malone), and Amber (Jamie Chung). There they all make a plan to escape from the institution. There is a dance studio where they are forced to dance for the boss Blue Jones (Oscar Issac) and their instructor Dr. Gorski (Carla Gugino.) When Babydoll first dances she meets a Wise Man (Scott Glenn.) The Wise Man tells Babydoll her and her crew would need five things to escape a map, fire, a knife, a key, and a mystery

In my opinion the movie was good but not Zack Snyder’s best. It was like playing a video game without a controller. I also thought of comparisons to Inception, and the recent Harry Potter Film. In the end boys my age would like it because it has got technically everything a teenage boy would love.
