Stan Lee's Final Project Is a Kids' Show Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger
Published May 29, 2019Stan Lee died late last year at the age of 95, leaving behind a truly impressive legacy and a large library of characters. Still, there's even another project bearing his name, and it's a weird one, to say the least. The late artist has left behind the blueprints for a kids' show starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnie is set to star in Stan Lee's Superhero Kindergarten, a children's cartoon that was born out of Lee's love of Kindergarten Cop and Arnie's longstanding desire to make a sequel.
In the show, Arnie plays Captain Courage — a retired superhero who now trains new superheroes in his own Kindergarten.
"It is an honour and privilege to help carry on Stan's creative legacy by introducing this new group of superheros to preschool children around the world," Schwarzenegger said in a statement. "Not only does Stan Lee's Superhero Kindergarten feature comedy and action, but there are many valuable lessons to be learned along the way. Of particular pride to me is the fact that I am not only teaching kids to use their superpowers, but I am also imparting valuable lessons to kids worldwide about the importance of health, exercise, and nutrition."
Stan Lee's Superhero Kindergarten hasn't found a network home just yet, but it's hard to imagine anyone passing on a project this weird.
