Today at the San Diego Comic-con, Hellboy director, Guillermo del Toro told fans that there was no word from the studio on whether or not a Hellboy sequel would get a green light, but that he remains hopeful.

"I hope it gets made, but that is really all I can say right now..."

The director said a franchise can "prove to be taxing" according to the director, we would like to move forward with a second film and is excited about the script which has seen the approval of Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola.

Mignola stated that while the content of the Hellboy 2 script is being kept under wraps, it will have echoes of the same themes he's exploring in some soon-to-be-released Hellboy comic books.
