Superhero movie news: Wolverine, the Green Hornet

They've announced a director for the Wolverine solo spinoff film: Gavin Hood. I didn't see his Oscar-winning film Tsotsi, but it seems to be well-liked among those who have. I do know this: take a director known for well-liked smaller films and give him a big-budget, high-profile feature and the results are usually good (see here and here.) So this looks like good news for fans. Hugh Jackman is reprising his role, which is probably also good news simply for consistency's sake if nothing else.

Meanwhile, in some truly bizarre news, it appears that Seth Rogen of all people has agreed to write and, in all likelihood, star in The Green Hornet. What? Dude's come a long way since he was Ken Miller. We can now fairly assume that Kato will be played by eitehr Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Jay Baruchel, Paul Rudd, or Martin Starr (a/k/a, "people who have been in Judd Apatow movies.") This gang needs a nickname - Tri-Lamb?
