About half a year since the world lost original superhero Stan Lee, Marvel Studios continues to keep his legend alive. POW! Entertainment and Genius Brands International is bringing to life his final project, Superhero Kindergarten, an animated series that will star Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator: Dark Fate), according to Deadline.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
“Many years ago, Arnold Armstrong (Schwarzenegger) was just an average gym teacher who acquired incredible superpowers when the earth passed through the ionic dust left in the wake of a mysterious comet. As a result, Arnold transformed into Captain Courage, one of the earth’s greatest protectors…now, Arnold must serve humanity once again by working ‘undercover’ as a brand-new kindergarten teacher whose main task is to train this unique new generation of super-powered 5-year-olds secretly.”
Lee, who executive produced the series, described it as partly inspired by the 1990 Schwarzenegger-starring comedy hit Kindergarten Cop. Genius Brands Chairman and CEO Andy Hayward and POW! President Gil Champion also executive produce. Furthermore, Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza scripted the series. Heyward also stated that every episode of the show, targeted at preschoolers, will feature the animated image of Lee.
“It is an honor and privilege to work with Genius Brands and POW! Entertainment on this new series,” Schwarzenegger said. “and help carry on Stan’s creative legacy by introducing this new group of superheroes to preschool children around the world. 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.”
