    July 19, 2005: SciFiWire reports: "Mike Mignola, creator of the Hellboy comic franchise, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming sequel to last year's Hellboy movie will deal with folklore and mythology, a counterbalance to the first film's focus on Nazis and monsters. "Wherein the first film was sort of the H.P. Lovecraft kind of monsters and the Nazis and the mad-scientist stuff, this one is geared much more toward the folklore element of the Hellboy [comics], with the kind of fairies and the Old-World stuff," Mignola said in an interview at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

    Mignola, who worked with Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro to develop the sequel's story, added: "That really is a big element of the Hellboy stories, and that element was completely not in the first film. So the idea of the second film would be sort of the other half of the Hellboy world." Mignola's comics often reference Russian, Irish and Japanese folklore, among other things.

    For the film, he said, "I don't know that Russian [mythology will figure in] so much, but certainly that idea of these ancient creatures that have been kind of shoved out of the mainstream and are living underground [will]. It's about that kind of stuff." Also look for the appearance of some characters familiar from the comics, such as the B.P.R.D.'s Johann.

    But not Roger the Homunculus: "We had tried to work it out, because Guillermo loves that character," Mignola said. "We tried to work out a storyline about Roger, and it just didn't work. So we opted to go the folklore route instead." -
