When we last heard from Hellboy, it was 2008, and he came out to big numbers, which made the gamble of a sequel seem like a good idea. The next week 'The Dark Knight' came out and the picture died quickly in the face of that behemoth. But today at Comic-Con 2012, Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman said they're up for doing 'Hellboy 3.'

To date, we haven't seen much from 'Pacific Rim' and Guillermo del Toro wants to keep it that way. He had some footage to show the Comic-Con 2012 audience but said he has no plans for that footage to go public and that after Comic-Con, the film will go into radio silence until 2013. And that's too bad for everyone who wasn't there because 'Pacific Rim' knocked the socks off of Hall H.
Warner Bros.’ Comic-Con 2012 panel in Hall H on Saturday has to be one of the most eagerly anticipated of the weekend. But which film will emerge as the “champion” once the three big dogs participating have unveiled their footage?
Warner is bringing Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit,’ Zack Snyder’s ‘Man of Steel’ and Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ to the masses. All three are bound to blow fans’ minds, but hype surrounding del Toro's project is starting to pick up momentum with the release of a new inside look.
We all know director/producer/writer/author Guillermo Del Toro is a busy man, with about 600 different projects in development right now in Hollywood. He's so busy, he cloned himself just so he can finish working on his new monster movie 'Pacific Rim.' Not sure what this new movie is about? We weren't sure either until this press release came out with the official synopsis.
As just about everyone in the world knows by now, The Hulk completely stole the show in Marvel's 'The Avengers' these past few weeks. For a while Disney (through ABC) and visionary director Guillermo del Toro had talked about the possibility of bringing the green brute back to TV screens in the tradition of the classic Lou Ferrigno / Bill Bixby take, but with ABC's fall schedule revealed, what does it mean for our dream of seeing 'The Hulk' on TV?
Most know Guillermo del Toro from his monster movies, be it the ‘Hellboy’ franchise or the imaginative ‘Pan’s Labyrinth.’ But that overlooks his contributions to the animation field. Del Toro has executive produced such features as ‘Kung Fu Panda 2,’ ‘Megamind,’ ‘Puss in Boots’ and the upcoming ‘Rise of the Guardians.’ And now he’ll go one step further by co-directing a 3D stop-motion animated take on ‘Pinocchio.’
Guillermo del Toro can’t seem to let ‘At the Mountains of Madness’ go. Universal pulled the plug on the director’s planned horror feature last year, with most of us speculating that it was the project’s escalating budget that gave the studio pause. And while that’s still a contributing factor, del Toro revealed another culprit that might have led to the demise of ‘Madness’ – Ridley Scott’s upcoming ‘Prometheus.’
