In some fun news, Kevin Smith is developing a Green Hornet animated series.
Smith has joined forced with WildBrain to put together an animated series showcasing the next generation of Green Hornet and Kato.
To be set in the modern-day Century City, this to-be-titled series will focus on the son of the original Green Hornet as he looks to take on his father’s famed mantle. In his fight against crime, this new Green Hornet will find himself teaming with the daughter of Kato.
This won’t be Smith’s first foray into the world of the Green Hornet, of course, for he has previously penned Green Hornet comic book tales – in addition to at one point being tasked with writing a Green Hornet movie for Miramax that was ultimately canned.
On this news, Smith enthused, “It’s an honour to escort the legendary Green Hornet and Kato into their very own animated series for the first time in the rich history of these iconic pop culture characters! We’ll be telling a tale of two Hornets – past and future – that spans generations and draws inspiration from a lifetime spent watching classic cartoons and amazing animated like Batman: The Animated Series, Heavy Metal, and Super Friends.”
Expect more on this new Green Hornet offering as we get it.
