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?

That car is looking bad-ass. I really don't know much about The Green Hornet but from these photos I'm guessing he likes driving around town and blowing shit up...

hhhhmmmm..... Next Summer... we'll see Still waiting for the first teaser to make my final verdict. This movie has the potential to be an average good (that's it just average good) movie or a horrible disaster Like the Black Beauty... I'm just glad they went with the original car and not some new model although I think a Dodge Charger or a Dodge Challenger could be a good replacement for the Chrysler Crown if they decide to update it, but that would suck.

My God, they just keep f*cking this movie up! I have to laugh, even though a great character is getting trashed. Can you imagine if Michael Keaton (or Kilmer, Clooney, Bale) had shown up in Adam's West's Batmobile? Hey GH, maybe some of us will see you later in the 21st century, when this travesty is forgotten. Sony is a public company, right? Sell your stock now.

Which car win in a firefight....the Black Beauty or The Tumbler??? I vote the Tumbler because Batman rules.

Hey 18! Yes, Alex deletes posts when someone disagrees with him concerning Rogen. Rogen must read what is said here, he has referred to why some people have a problem with him and the Hornet. The love affair between them is just wrong.

I assume its going to be more of a comedy so maybe john cho from Harold and Kumar should be kato. He showed some fighting skills in star trek too.
