Okay; we get a chance to check out the direction Michel Gondry is taking The Green Hornet movie. Given he’s cast Seth Rogan as The Green Hornet we should not be surprised that it’s a comedy. Of sorts.
The Green Hornet is a hero from the era of The Shadow and The Phantom. He started out as a character in a 1930 radio show before moving onto comics and TV.
In the original Green Hornet mythos he’s a blood relative of the Lone Ranger.
He’s a crime fighter, not that much of a brawler but a gadget man and more than adequately aided by his assistant Kato.
This trailer certainly seems to suggest we’ll be watching a Green Hornet version where it’s Kato as the most talented hero and The Green Hornet as… well, something else.
What do you make of the trailer?
