First pic of Seth Rogen as THE GREEN HORNET (and something I'm dying to know about this movie...)

Here's the first photo of Seth Rogen in costume from the upcoming The Green Hornet movie...

Hmmm... dunno. Nicolas Cage has already bowed out of this project, on grounds that the villain he was set to play was too "one-dimensional". And Rogen's duds look too much like a cosplay getup.

But here's what I'm really wondering most of all about The Green Hornet movie: will the connection to the Lone Ranger be touched upon?

If so, and if done respectfully, this film could have a great tone to it. And if you're wondering just what the heck I'm talking about, then use your mouse (or your finger if you're using an iPhone) to swipe over the "Inviso-Text" and discover the secret if you want to be potentially spoiled:

BEGIN POTENTIAL SPOILER (highlight to read) Okay, here goes: the Green Hornet is the grand-nephew of the Lone Ranger! Britt Reid's father was Dan Reid, the nephew of John Reid (the Lone Ranger) who often rode with his uncle on adventures throughout the old west. And according to legend, the Green Hornet had the ORIGINAL mask of the Lone Ranger sewn into the brim of his hat, making the Green Hornet the modern-day continuation of John Reid's legacy. Isn't that the awesomest thing?! Now, I defy anyone to tell me that this shouldn't make it into Sony's movie! END POTENTIAL SPOILER
Could The Green Hornet be so daring as to include that? I'd gladly buy a ticket for this movie if it were...
