Arnold Schwarzenegger knows how to reach his fans online. With his acting, sports, and political career, Schwarzenegger often shares his life and workout tips on his Instagram and in his newsletter. But outside of sharing his musings on just about everything, he also teases upcoming acting gigs, including one he just shared on his Instagram.
In a new post, Schwarzenegger is dressed up as an epic-looking Zeus on a promo poster and captioned it “Coming February 2022.” His son, Joseph Baena, also commented jokingly, “Oh god of the sky, please bless my pump today.”
That’s all the info we’ve got. So, what could the mysterious poster mean? Well, according to IMDB, nothing on the actor’s list of upcoming work, including Triplets with Danny Devito, is related to the Greek god. Plus, he didn’t mention a streaming service or TV network related to the post. So, what’s going on in February he could be involved in?
Our best guess is the Super Bowl, which is set to go for February 13. Schwarzenegger could be lending his acting chops (and muscles) to an upcoming TV spot. The whole promotion could be similar to the strange, confusing Crocodile Dundee 2018 Super Bowl ad featuring Danny McBride, Chris Hemsworth, and other Australian actors. Ultimately all the teasers and trailers for the “film” were really a large marketing campaign to increase tourism to Australia.
From the post, it doesn’t look like Schwarzenegger is marketing a product or place. But who knows? Other celebrities could have similar posts up soon, making an epic, mysterious group of Olympian gods for a memorable Super Bowl moment. But like we said, it’s all speculation. By February, the mystery will be solved.
