The Green Hornet's Black Beauty Unveiled at Comic-Con
You might have noticed the first photo in my preview night photo feature earlier tonight was a shot of The Green Hornet car covered up by a sheet. Well, later in the night, apparently at an event that Sony didn't want me at (don't ask me why?), Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry appeared in person to unveil the Green Hornet's Black Beauty to a small group of press. Alas, since I wasn't there, I'm going to have to rely on the photos and videos from MTV and SuperHeroHype, which are ultimately pretty low quality. But anyway, you can check out some shots of their car below, which features two gatling guns mounted on the hood of it.
Of course, this looks almost exactly like the original Black Beauty from the 60's, give or take those guns on the hood. "Sometimes you have to go a long way to get back to where you started," Rogen told MTV. "We went to a lot of major auto manufacturers who pitched different designs and different futuristic takes on it. To us, it was important that it seem like a guy could actually build this car, that it was something you could use on the streets. We ended up falling back on the original '66 Chrysler Imperial." Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are writing, Michel Gondry is directing, however they still haven't found a Kato yet. Thoughts?
