Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is set to launch Striker Force 7, an animated superhero cartoon series starring himself in the lead role.  

On Wednesday, TMZ Sports provided a statement from Ronaldo, who wears No. 7 for Los Blancos, about the project.

"In the same way football connects cultures and people around the world, I believe great animated characters and heroes can do the same," he said. "That's why I am excited to bring together these passions of football and superheroes through this project and share it with my fans."

Peter White of Deadline reported Ronaldo is working with Graphic India and VMS Communications to bring the characters to numerous platforms, including animation comics, publishing, gaming and digital content.

No official release date was announced.
