As the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger fights supervillains, marital fidelity
I was watching this silly thing again this morning, trying to figure out how it’s going to, ahem, fly now:
Anything to get out of the house, eh, Arnold?
I’m not sure who the intended audience is supposed to be in the first place. Are little kids really into old Arnold movies? Are adults really going to sit through a 30-minute toy commercial featuring an elderly weightlifter? And then you add today’s news on top of that… A superhero with an illegitimate child? Well, I guess there’s a precedent. The new Robin is Bruce Wayne’s bastard son, isn’t he? But that’s different because Wayne claims he was drugged and Talia al Ghul took advantage of him. Um. Or so I hear. From people who still read comics. Ha! Yep.
Anyway, we’ll see if Schwarzenegger and Stan Lee still make this dumb Governator cartoon. I hope they do. All the other politicians these days are boring.
P.S. I just realized who the Governator’s archenemy is: Dr. Womb.
P.P.S. When Stan Lee was hyping this a few weeks back, he said:
“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.”
Well, he’s down a wife. But it balances out because he has the extra kid.
P.P.P.S. Shriver tells People magazine:
“This is a painful and heartbreaking time,” said Shriver, 55. “As a mother, my concern is for the children. I ask for compassion, respect and privacy as my children and I try to rebuild our lives and heal. I will have no further comment.”
I want to know how one of their household staff had a kid with Arnold’s eyes and Maria didn’t notice until just now.
