Wanna know a little about the plot of HELLBOY 2?

Published at: Aug. 7, 2006, 12:23 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with something very spoilerish for you HELLBOY fans out there. I loved the film, myself... That entire opening with the Nazis rocked my world. So great. I thought the whole film was awesome, but I'm a sucker for Ron Perlman, especially when he's in creature make-up.

So, the below synopsis has been confirmed by our sources. You'll find lots of spoilers, but the scooper decided to stay away from very specific details, so that's a good thing. The overall vibe of the script/plot rundown is kind of disappointed, but honestly... I trust Guillermo del Toro and Mike Mignola to treat the universe and the characters of HELLBOY right. Here's the rundown. Once again, beware if you want to stay virginal about the property... You might not want to know some of this stuff...

This is kind of spoiler-heavy as far as plot elements, but I'm not going to give away any big details. Mostly background stuff:

Hellboy and and Liz have moved in together, albeit at the Paranormal Lab. John Myers is no longer a part of the team, and actually they don't even mention his name in the draft I read - everyone else is back. Instead, Hellboy is chasing down some monsters and comes right across a news crew; the secret is out and the FBI has to eat crow and go public with their secret unit. This puts a lot of pressure on Hell and Liz, who were already expriencing serious problems. When Hell doesn't do much of a good job coming off for the public, a suave character named Johann is brought it. He's dressed like an old detective and has a glass bubble for a head that's filled with what looks like gas. In some weird manifestation, Johann is actually free energy, more or less, contained in a suit (I have no idea if he's a character in the comic or not).

Anyway, keeping this brief, Johann delights Liz, who's tired of Hell's brash behavior (shades of the previous film), but the gang has to team up to fight a rogue Prince. He's the son of the King of the woodland ghouls, a group of "monsters" that include gnomes, trolls, fairies, tooth fairies, and all other minor imps that roam through the forest. A long time ago there was peace between the humans and the woodland creatures, but then there was a war. To win the war the King conjured the Golden Army, a group of metallic soldiers that were invincible. Sadly, he couldn't control them, and the Army ended up killing innocent human women and children. The King split the key that controlled the Army into three pieces and buried them across the globe. Now the Prince wants the war renewed and has captured two of the pieces of the key. The last piece is held by his sister, the Princess, and the Prince is out to capture her. Unfortunately for him, Abe has fallen in love with her...so Helboy and the crew have to protect her and stop him.

So, basically, the plot revolves around Hellboy fighting off characters from fairy tales.

    Harry's "Blade 2" review

    by Badger999

    Harry's Blade 2 review likened it to having your clit licked. Now Harry claims to be male, so I'm really not sure why he thinks he knows what it's like to even have a clit, much less have it licked. At any rate, I'm sure Harry will compare HB2 to having his salad tossed by Smurfette, because that makes sense in Harry's world. Oh and remember that time Harry let that kid sit in shit instead of having to miss a few minutes of The Hulk? Or that time he reviewed that script without telling his buddy McWeeny wrote it? Brilliant man, I tell you.

    woodland creatures

    by oisin5199

    if you've ever read good fantasy (especially DeLint and some Gaiman, hell even some Grimm), you'd know that woodland creatures are anything but 'gay.' Ignoring that dumbass use of the word, those kind of 'fairy tale' creatures can be totally sick and creepy. I say bring on the nymphs!

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 1:48 p.m. CST

    That sounds great... even more true to the spirit of

    by modlight

    the comic than the first.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 1:49 p.m. CST

    Sounds pretty good, except...

    by Ribbons

    ...the recycling of the love triangle. I know, who am I to tell Mignola and del Toro what parts of the script sound bad, right? Well, that's just my opinion. It's manufactured drama. Like I said, the rest of it sounds pretty cool. I'm excited to hear that Abe'll have an expanded role this time 'round.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 1:52 p.m. CST

    WEAK

    by Total_Kneebiter

    NUFF SAID. TRhe first one was OKAY, this plot sounds LAME. Magical fairey princess? I'll skip it till the super duper dvd comes out, then burn it. Del Toro should MOVE ON to something worthwhile.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 1:54 p.m. CST

    Also...

    by Ribbons

    ...I'd like to see Agent Myers still kickin' it with the BPRD, simply because I'm a continuity freak. His role was mainly audience filter and third wheel in the original film, though, so it's understandable if they feel like they no longer have any use for him.

    "I'd murder a clone" sequel - "Bring on the Nymphs"

    by rightarm4Rosario

    Due to the massive response from the online community, Troma Films has greenlit a sequel to the popular film "I'd Murder a Clone of Myself" - tentatively titled "Bring on the Nymphs", this film will pay homage to "I'd Murder a clone of Myself," even using unused footage from the original, featuring Dustin Diamond, which unfortunately hit the cutting-room floor. Brought in to direct this surefire classic is none other than Brian Singer. Screenplay by Akiva Goldsman, with a script-tweak by Henry Rollins. SYNOPSIS: The young internet-trolling fanboy triumphed over all obstacles in the first film, having seduced Rosario/Blair/Mendes - but now he faces a challenge: His older brother (portrayed by Jason Lee) stumbles upon the portal in the closet, and is thus sucked into the wood-nymph land. Featuring a grizzled father who must come to terms with the disappearance of his two sons (ably played by Bill Paxton), and a Haunting musical score by Peter Gabriel, its the scorching family-film of 2009!

    Hellboy II: The Golden Army

    by Boromir187

    Why is everyone so shocked about this? Del Toro stated last year that the title was "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" and that it would be about Hellboy having to save the world from a goblin/fairy rebellion. All this is doing is confirming that he is still following using the same script. He also stated last year that Agent John Myers would not be returning, that Kroenen would have a cameo appearance, Abe would have a much larger role, and that Lobster Johnson would not be a part of this installment. All of this was stated in various interviews by Del Toro LAST YEAR before Revolution Studios dropped the project. Next thing you know you all will be shocked to find out that he and Mignola already have a vague outline for the third film, as it was envisioned as a trilogy.

    by Ribbons

    Do you really have to ask why? The answer is that some of us have either not read or forgot we read the same information on 'Hellboy 2' that you have. That's not a crime, last I checked. I knew about the Golden Army stuff (and, obviously, the Abe having a bigger role stuff), but I had not heard that Myers wasn't returning until now. I also didn't know the series was planned as a trilogy, but that's kind of interesting.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 2:10 p.m. CST

    re: Niles Crane

    I'd actually heard Guillermo say that Doug Jones would be supplying the voice of Abe in the sequel, which I kinda don't get, because I thought David Hyde Pierce did a pretty great job with the voice duties in 'Hellboy.'

    by Boromir187

    Del Toro was speaking of the two animated TV movies that are on the way when he said that. Those being Hellboy: Sword of Storms (2006) and Hellboy: Blood & Iron (2007). IDT Entertainment is responsible for them and I believe they will both air on Cartoon Network, one this fall and one next. If they do well presumably a full out animated series will follow. I guess that they just couldn't secure David Hyde Pierce for those. That said, I would assume he will be back to voice Abe in Hellboy 2.

    by Bryan

    If they can capture the creepiness of the fairy people from Mignola's drawings, then all these finicky homophobes who say everything "sounds gay" could probably be won over. I'm glad that Hellboy will be going public (the secrecy seemed like an unneccessary addition to the movie Hellboy universe) and that it will be more mythology/folklore based like the comics. I like the first movie, but it had more of a Men In Black vibe than I anticipated. This sounds more like what I love about Hellboy. (Also, Johan is a cool character and seems ripe for cinematic translation.)

    by CreasyBear

    Back in the day, before G.I. Joe was a weekly cartoon, you would get only one full week of it, like a miniseries, and then nothing for months. One of these G.I.

The Woodland Critter Christmas with all the Satan worshipping wood animals that righteously get shotgunned to death by Santa Claus, but in this case, Hellboy. It would probably be really funny, though I don't know whether or not this is what Mignola or Rolly Pol.... uh Del Toro want.

    I hope you're lying/joking. Because I would severely hope nobody would so blatantly steal the names of TWO frigging George R. R. Martin books. That's waaaaay too much of a coincidence.

    Hellboy vs Tooth Fairy?

    by rubensreviews

    I think it sounds ok for an animation of Hellboy but not a feature length film. It just won't fly well. I want Hellboy vs Nazis

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 8:56 p.m. CST

    With a script tweak by Henry Rollins???

    by Arche Logos

    That had me laughing my ass off. Almost as funny as Hellboy meets the Princess Bride. I must admit to having a morbid curiosity to seeing Hellboy kick the tooth fairy's ass. I wonder if he takes on the golden shower army after he walks in on the tooth fairy using a molar shaped strapon on Selma in a giant gnome orgy. I'd pay to see that.

    Just as I feared! Crap, by jove!

    by superninja

    I see they're right on schedule, crapping up Hellboy to be "cinematic" and action-tastic. Yet another great character from the comics now squished into the uncomfortable and uncanonical Hellboy/Liz relationship so we can have a dry love triangle.

  • Aug. 7, 2006, 10:37 p.m. CST

    Yes, but does it not sound like they

    by superninja

    combined Roger the homunclus who had electrical powers and Johannes the Ecoplasmic here? Just like they combined Abe (who was Riggs to Hellboy's Murtaugh) and Johannes in the first film with his psychic sensitivity? I will never forget how they ruined Abe! And it sounds like we're in for more sappy Hellboy/Liz crapola.

    Watching that wuss of a character try to win a girl is going to be a real teeth-grinder.

    This sounds awesome!

    by cerebulon

    And YES Harry, the guy with the bubble for a head is a real character from the comic book. This actually sounds a lot more like the comic book than the first film. Abe-Sapien is not gay, he is a result of a genetic experiment and he lost is one true love. There is much more to the fairy-tale critters than we normally know today. The Fae were all basically indestructable mini-gods and they were the source of most of the monsters in mythology worldwide. You had things like RawHead Rex which were skinless giants and the 'Host' or the 'Scourge' which was this swarm of flying lovecraftian things that would snatch people and livestock from their homes at night. I hope they do it justice.

    Will there be more Rasputins with electric mittens? Clockwork Nazis? Cthulhoids in the icebox? It was terrible.

    Arthur Machen

    by godoffireinhell

    Sounds like GdT didn't get Machen out of his system with PAN'S. That's potentially a good thing. Though I would have much preferred a straight, literal adaptation of THE GREAT GOD PAN over his riff.

    by samsquanch

    tsk. You're all so fussy. Go check out some of those "classics" you loved so much years ago, and set them beside contemporary fare like Hellboy. I'll think you'll find the old classics are just old, and stinkers to boot, more often than not.

    What the fuck was the point

    by RezE11even

    In making John Myers the main fucking charecter in the first film then, eh?! Seriously, fuck. The only good thing about the original was that Nazi opening. Then shit got boring.

    What happened to that Borat clip of the bigoted hunter?

    by Zeke25:17

    Seriously! I wrote a marvelous post on there, and the whole thing got yanked. Are we offending fucking right-wing bigoted hunters now? Let me repeat: let's just round up the entire population of all the "hunting is great" states, put em all in the wilderness, and let em blow each other the hell up. Thanka Baby Jesus, amen!

    No John Meyer = no female audience

    by ubersnarf

    Sorry, boys, but the Johnster was hot. Hellboy is a child and Selma Blair is a tool, so without our little hottie, there isn&#39;t a whole lot going for this movie when it comes to the straight female aud. I love me some comic book movies, but the script wasn&#39;t enough for me to buy the DVD. And I have no urge to see HB2 without some kind of eye candy. <yawn>

    What, No ROger?

    by randalmcmurphy

    HE was a cool side character, why make up one? And Rasputin is the only way to go for a villian. Ya gotta bring him back. Actually, with all of the supernatural evil stuff he did, he is the only character that you could recycle and have a legit excuse. Or... they could make it that nazi guy thats just a head in a bowl that has that ape carry him around.
