Green Hornet comes to Carl's Jr.

In advance of the upcoming Green Hornet flick, Carl’s Jr. has issued a set of four Green Hornet toys along with a GH plastic, collectible cup.

The flick, staring Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Edward Furlong is due to hit theaters in January 2011, so it is rather odd that the toys are being released this far in advance, but, given the negative buzz that has been rumbling about the flick since the release of the first trailer, perhaps this is being done in order to reverse that feeling, and build up a younger potential audience. Still, given the shorted memory span of the American populace, it is still a tad unusual.

Needless to say, there are already a passel of Green Hornet comics that are already out there from Dynamite Entertainment. These comics are from a multitude of top-flight creators (including Kevin Smith, J. Scott Campbell, Alex Ross, Matt Wagner, and others).

Still,. this post is about the toys, and well, so far they look cool. so we’re going to hunt them down and see what we turn up.

In the mean time, let’s have some Green Hornet-Type fun, eh?
