Well he's pretty damn good at writing comedy, we know that. But he's kinda out of his genre here a little bit isn't he? Then again, he may be trying to branch out and do something more serious here.

It goes back to fanboys not like guys that worked in comedy doing superhero stuff. Favreau got some flack, Tim Story got his flack(some deserved, but not all), and now Rogen. We want indie directors with peabody awards doing our superheroes, go figure.

I'm not an expert on Green Hornet since all I know of the character is from the 1960s TV series. But, maybe he's playing a role like 'The Kid' in Dick Tracy but you know...older.

Imo- Favreau may be delivering the 'Batman Begins' of the MARVEL universe!

Everything is looking GREAT on that film. The best cast a fan can ask for with noteworthy and acclaimed actors. I mean hell, Robert Downey Jr. is practically Tony Stark! And Favreau is the type of director who focuses on the practical rather than the CGI, see 'Zathura', which is just what Iron Man needed. Some other director may have went overly CGI with it.

Still have yet to see the final product, but I'd be surprised if it isn't the best MARVEL film to date! If not possibly second best- at a possible worst- second only to SM2. If the film is just as good as this seemingly 'stars alligning' for the film like it did for BB, we are in for a masterpiece.

So don't discount him just yet, if you were in your post.... what it all depends on is:

1. A director who gets the source material.
2. A great story and screenplay.
3. Great/ phenomenal cast.

We don't need indie directors directing these films, what we need is guys that get the characters. We can have the best indie director of all time directing a superhero film, but if he doesn't get the character- it's going to be the biggest disappointment of all time. A director's background does NOT matter- his knowledge and love for the character does.

I love Seth Rogen and he is a damn fine comedic actor/writer. But this is um.....really out of nowhere. I don't think people are getting so worked up because Rogen's talent is in question but it is more of a WTF?

Well, it's just because he's so synonymous with the "collegiate toilet comedy" branch of the comedy genre.

This is like seeing Robin Williams doing films like "One Hour Photo" and "Insomnia."

It hits you out of left field; the idea of a funnyman being brought to attention for a dramatic role...

Huge difference between the star and the guy behind the camera. Smith is a big fan of the Hornet and probably would have done it justice. But having Smith as the hornet would be ridiculous. I have no problem with Rogen writing(as long as he doesn't make it a comedy) but I sure don't want to see him as the Hornet.

JW, why the fck do people still believe he's portraying Green Hornet. They said he would star in the film- they did NOT say he would be Green Hornet.

This is like the beginning of a horrible rumor. Yep, a rumor that fans created- nothing stated he would be Green Hornet.

God damn, I'm getting a headache! Srry for the rant, but what's the reading comprehension level around here???

Apparently not a lot, since you seem to not have the same idea of what it means to "star" in a film that everyone else does.

If Seth Rogen "stars" in GH, who the hell else would he play besides GH himself?

One of the -supporting- characters... if you get a great comedian who can offer comic relief- and since he is already working on the project as the writer- it would be a smart decision to see if he can play that type of character in the film... for example- I could see him as a tech guy along the lines of Kevin Smith in LFODH.

It's too absurd a notion to even think or even think that Rogen would go along with the possibility of Green Hornet. Rogen would even know it wouldn't be a smart move physically because- at least I don't think- he's in shape to be taking on any action movie due to the normal requirements.

However, he can still star (co-star) in the film as a comic relief character that is one of the main supporting characters.

This reminds me way too much of the Jack Black thing. Besides, in all liklihood if the studio is that insane I doubt that Rogen is, he'd probably be laughing at the notion right now... an action role would be way too demanding of a task/challenge.

I liked Black in Kong, he was great in that film. Kong is actually my favorite Peter Jackson film, above LOTR.

But, I couldn't see him as Green Lantern.

Sound familiar?

The Green Hornet was only interesting because of Bruce Lee so, unless they try to have a decent story and some ass kicker like Tony Jaa...
It smells more like Lost in Space or Thunderbirds in the making...

That would be even worse than him playing GH, since everyone who watched the show was really watching it for Kato.

I'm hearing deva vu here. I remember the same fists in the air back in the late 80's when another talented comic actor signed on for a sacred comic icon.
