“Green Hornet,” the 2011 film starring Seth Rogen as the masked crimefighter with Jay Chou as his more-capable partner, Kato, comes to DVD and Blu-ray this week.

I’m not sure the film was a complete artistic success – though James Franco was fantastic in a cameo. But with the nearly $100 million made domestically at the box office, I wouldn’t be very surprised to see Rogen and Chou reprise their roles.

I am glad the film came out, though, if for no other reason than I got to check out Britt Reid’s garage at Comic-Con last year.

I sat in the Black Beauty, and met Mandy Dollar, portraying a Green Hornette at the show.   Dollar, originally from Oklahoma City, is now an actress in San Diego.  Check her out – as well as other Comic-Con highlights from 2010 – in the video below:

And the film did spur some new interest in the character, with multiple comic books from Dynamite. One current series, “Aftermath,” is a sequel to the film in comic-book form, written by Jai Nitz.
