Guillermo del Toro Says Next Hellboy Maybe 3 Or 4 Years Away

Director is not in a hurry.

I've said before that "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" was a well made comic book movie.  There was action, adventure, humor and let's not forget the incredible visuals of all the characters.  Guillermo del Toro told MTV that they're not in a big hurry to make the next one.  Maybe in three or four years they'll start something.

As much as this bums me out, it could be seen as a good thing.  Del Toro will be busy with the "Hobbit" movies (I believe it's going to be made into two).  The guy has so many creative juices flowing in his brain.  I'm okay with him doing what he wants to do.  He shouldn't be rushed into doing another Hellboy movie if that's not where he's at right now.

The good news is we may not have to wait that long to see some of the characters back on the big screen.  Del Toro has given his blessings for another director to direct a spinoff based on the B.P.R.D.  That could be cool. It would be weird having someone else's vision but I can be open minded enough to hope for the best.  Perhaps Mike Mignola will be involved as he has been in the two Hellboy movies.
