Seth Rogen, star of The Green Hornet movie, said that the character's abilities will be faithful to the original version.

"We were contractually obligated to not give the character super-powers," Rogen said, adding that if the character did have power, he would want him to fly because "there's a lot of running in the movie, which is something I do not enjoy."

Rogen said he and co-writer Evan Goldberg were looking for a hero-sidekick story to tell.

"The fact that Kato was such a famous part of The Green Hornet and the fact that they were really a team was what really drew me and Evan to it," he said. "We really like to write relationship movies and more than anything, this movie kind of explores the relationship between the hero and the sidekick."

Rogen said he likes the character arc in the movie.

"When we find him, he kind of has not interest in other than drinking and partying and stuff like that, which I think a lot of people can relate to," he said. "And his father dies, and he kind of realizes, that, despite what his father thought of him, he could actually maybe do something. And with this help of this other guy who hated his father, too, together they could maybe become super-heroes, which is something they both always wanted to."

The Green Hornet opens in theaters on Jan. 14. Look for more on the film soon here in The Continuum.

ABC has released a description and gallery of images from "No Ordinary Brother," the Tuesday, Jan. 11 episode of No Ordinary Family.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Jim's wayward brother, Mike (Jason Wiles), makes a surprise visit to the Powell household and discovers the family has powers. But in an attempt to make some quick cash, he tries to convince JJ to using his abilities to win big by betting on the horses.

"Meanwhile, in a surprise twist, Katie is given a promotion at Global Tech by Human Resources VP Victoria Morrow (Rebecca Mader), who may be hiding a secret agenda, and Daphne is placed on the school's peer disciplinary committee and believes a student may have been wrongly accused of possessing drugs."

Blackline Comics has announced a May launch for its flagship title, Misery City.

An ongoing series, Misery City is created and drawn by Vassilis Gogtzilas, with writer K.I. Zachopoulos, who both hail from the Greek Isles.

Here's how Blackline describes the first issue:

"Misery City #1 is the story of one particular inhabitant of a not-so-nice place to visit. If you were in gumshoe Max Murray's shoes, you'd think so, too. In fact, you'd probably drink heavily come nightfall, as Max once did, and his desire to dive back into the bottle is a day-by-day struggle. But the horrific legions of Hell's underbelly just won't leave poor Max alone. They exist solely to climb to the surface just to torment Max. Between that and his object of love and lust, Pakita, spurning his advances, it's little wonder Max Murray calls Misery cith home!"


Image Comics has announced a March 23 release for Lorna, Relic Wrangler, a one-shot adventure written by Micah S. Harris and illustrated by Loston Wallace, Michael Youngblood and Olli Hihnala.

Here's how Image describes the book:

"To defeat a nefarious evil entity, Lorna, Relic Wrangler, must pilfer a mysterious artifact from a Memorial in the heart of our nation's capitol. What she doesn't know is that she's offering herself up as a sacrificial party favor in the process! Lorna also has to face down her high school nemesis -- now a cat-suited villainess -- in a girl fight for the ages!"

"Lorna's passions were never those of your typical southern belle," Harris said. "Now, from her trailer park HQ, she tracks the uncanny on a global scale."

"Lorna is Mary Ann and Ginger combined with a mint julep twist of Laura Croft," Wallace said. "Sexy, funny, and devilishly smart, Lorna fearlessly faces down supernatural dangers wearing cut-off jeans shorts. What's not to like?"

Darwyn Cooke provides the cover, and Dean Yeagle supplies a variant cover.
