THE GREEN HORNET
Writer/Star Seth Rogen tells Contact Music his character is a douchebag. Shocking, I know. Rogen goes onto to say the secret of the concept it the duo of the Hornet and Kato. “In our approach, the relationship is the superpower. Alone these guys are kind of nothing, but together they’re able to accomplish things that no mere mortal ever could,” he says. I suppose by the end of the film, Rogen’s character learns to be less of a douchebag. He doesn’t confirm or deny that in the article.

He notes a particular member of the Corp as his favorite. “He’s called Chaselon and that character as drawn is like a crystal faceted, geodesic shape and it has robotic limbs and it has a Mohawk and a mask. In the cartoon you can kind of get away with stuff because if there’s a written word your brain is going to fill in the blanks and make it real the way that you’re brain is going to allow it to happen, but when you have to present it as fully realized, I saw that one and I thought, ‘This is such a zany concept that I don’t know how we’re going to pull it off,'” he says. “Quite frankly, the ideas behind ‘Green Lantern’ are so inventive that it really did reignite for me a sense of, ‘Okay, I can push the boundaries just a little bit. If someone else has come up with an idea for a creature that looks like a slug and is wearing a Victorian, redheaded wig, clearly I can start to push the envelope a bit on my own stuff.’ So it was a great education from that standpoint.”
