Last week, Arnold Schwarzenegger's reps declined to comment on a story that "the former California Governor may be doing an animated series with producer Andy Heyward based on a superhero character created in partnership with comic book icon Stan Lee," reports Deadline.

It seems the hush hush was preparing for the big Entertainment Weekly magazine cover reveal -- Meet The Governator, a Schwarzenegger post-Governor superhero crime fighter set to run his do-goodery operations from an ultra modern lair under his Brentwood house.

WIll his "fleet of super vehicles" be electric? Will his gadgets be energy efficient? Will his closet of “Super Suits” be made of recyclable materials? Watch and find out. The Governator will be assisted in adventure by a host of supervillians ( G.I.R.L.I.E Men), sidekicks, teenage computer geniuses, and a talking dog. One of those things is untrue.

Reports Deadline, Schwarzenegger is slated to unveil the animated series in a press conference at MIPTV on April 4.
