Now that the Michel Gondry's "Green Hornet" trailer is out in the open, the comics world is reacting, and I've included a quick sampling with opinions from Cully Hamner, Jeff Parker and the ever-quotable Brian Denham in the Report today.
While they were checking out Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, however, a few other faces in the crowd were watching SyFy's new "Phantom" re-imagining and "The Pixar Story" on CNBC. Click on past the jump to find out what everyone thought and see Fred Van Lente's Hercules casting recommendation, as well as what Bendis got away with this morning during the Avengers retreat.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and I believe I beat the Library of Congress to archiving these statements in the Twitter Report for June 22, 2010.

"Green Hornet" trailer pt. 3: @BrianDenham The Green Hornet trailer has that same bass drop sound that the Iron Man 2 trailer had when Scarjo got in the ring with Stark.
-Brian Denham, Artist ("Iron Man: Hypervelocity," "Man-Thing")
@skottieyoung Listening to Eminem's new album. I'm not a religious person but if you are, can you ask God to tell him to stop singing on his hooks. Thanks
-Skottie Young, Artist ("New X-Men," "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz")
@MKupperman I caught a few minutes of the new Phantom this weekend. Great costume! He looks like an accountant who works around bees.
-Michael Kupperman, Writer/Artist ("Tales Designed to Thrizzle")
"The Pixar Story" pt. 1: @rebekahisaacs Watching 'The Pixar Story' on CNBC. So inspirational. Good to be reminded that there's still a place for creativity and plain ole hard work.
