A fan states how Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are always competing with each other through their movies.
I swear, Him and Sly really ARE in a competition with each other, the minute Sly gets a show with Tulsa King, Arnold pulls this. Maybe he'll do a reality show like Sly, too!

While everyone was praising how good the actor looks in the teaser, and how excited they are for the series, a fan was not happy because Netflix had one of the most iconic stars in their series but they made the least epic teaser.
Was Netflix told to take an iconic action star and make the least inspiring trailer ever?

That looks like it might be very fun and deeply cheesy… I just hope it's the right kind of cheesy

Another user states that he likes this version of the star more.
This is something I gotta watch. No idea why but I like this version of Arnie better – the wisecracking, older dude who is kicking butt nevertheless! 👍 https://t.co/bBdKd578Ui

The first-look teaser has received mixed reviews, but that doesn’t mean that the show would disappoint, if the Predator actor is part of the show, then it would not disappoint.

What did Arnold Schwarzenegger say about his series?
In a statement released by Netflix, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he had enough of answering people’s questions about his upcoming movie, and this was his first comment regarding his first OTT series.
“Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is. Fubar will kick your ass and make you laugh — and not just for two hours. You get a whole season.”
The actor has been one of the most iconic stars of Hollywood, and throughout his career, his charisma and personality, along with his physique, even at the age of 75, make him one of the best stars and another reason why this series would be an entertaining watch.
