Based on the trailer I’ve seen and Hardee’s promotional campaign, I don’t have a lot of faith in the coming movie. The Hornet is made to look like an incompetent buffoon playing at being a superhero. I have no problem with Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, though he doesn’t seem to fit the image, but the comedy looks ridiculous. They say it has comedy bits in it, but is a serious piece. Why then does the trailer play up the comedy? Why does the Hardee’s commercial have the Hornet hit the wrong button and blow up a drive through with rockets?
I’m posting the three Gold Key comics published during the series’ run. Van Williams and Bruce Lee make a more effective duo.
