The website for Hellboy II: The Golden Army has been teasing out images of the heroes of the film (Liz Sherman, Abe Sapien and Hellboy himself) in the form of lobby displays over the past few days. But what about the villains? Well, according to director Guilermo del Torro on the message board for the film, they'll be coming soon, along with a trailer for the film.
In a thread discussing the lobby displays dated November 27, del Toro chimed in with the following:
In the next 3/4 weeks we will reveal Johann.
Expect "Baddies" around mid-December too.
A trailer SHOULD be out around the Holidays.
With a signature blend of action, humor and character-based spectacle, the saga of the world's toughest, kitten-loving hero from Hell continues to unfold in Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Bigger muscle, badder weapons and more ungodly villains arrive in an epic vision of imagination from Oscar-nominated director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy).
After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red. He may be horned. He may be misunderstood. But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman).
Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development--pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann--the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army opens July 11th, 2008.
