Schwarzenegger plays the character as a gym coach who acquires incredible superpowers from a mysterious comet and becomes Captain Courage, one of the earth’s greatest protectors. He works ‘undercover’ as a kindergarten teacher to raise a new generation of super-powered kids.
The idea of this cartoon series was first discussed between the late Stan Lee and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“Years ago, Stan Lee and I spoke of such a project, and I’m excited to finally bring great storytelling to kids around the world, which will also promote lessons of health, exercise, fitness, and anti-bullying,” commented Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The action-adventure comedy series targeting kids ages 4 – 7, is co-produced by Alibaba Group, Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment, and Schwarzenegger’s Oak Productions.
In addition to his likeness, Schwarzenegger lends his voice as the lead character in the series. Co-creator of Deadpool, Fabian Nicieza, who has sold over 100 million comics worldwide, is scripting the series.
