Guillermo del Toro says he’s “not a superhero guy” but still open to more comic book movies

Guilermo del Toro has certainly built up plenty of comic book experience over the years, with Blade II, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army on his C.V., not to mention several years of development on both an Incredible Hulk TV series and Justice League Dark movie, both of which ultimately failed to come to fruition.

Speaking to Comic Book, the filmmaker has discussed his interest in the genre, stating that he’s drawn more towards ‘monster’ characters and as such, has little interest in tackling a ‘traditional’ superhero movie as he’s simply “not a superhero guy.”

“Well, I co-wrote a whole screenplay on Justice League Dark for Warner Bros., so that’s your answer,” said del Toro when asked if he’s still keen to work on future comic book movies. “I love Deadman, I love Demon, I love Swamp Thing. Zatanna. That’s a universe, is one thing.

‘Hellboy’ Creator Turned Down Comic Book of Guillermo del Toro’s Unmade Third Film

‘Hellboy’ Creator Turned Down Comic Book of Guillermo del Toro’s Unmade Third Film
Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola reveals in a new interview with ScreenRant that he once heard from Guillermo del Toro about turning the unmade “Hellboy 3” into a comic book, an idea the creator rejected. Del Toro directed 2004’s “Hellboy” and 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” earning critical acclaim for his visionary approach in adapting Mignola’s comic book. The “Hellboy” character became more of a household name after del Toro’s movies, but the films were not successful enough at the box office to warrant a third entry. When the idea came up to adapt del Toro’s “Hellboy 3” story as a comic book, Mignola turned it down as to not confuse comic book fans.

“I think del Toro mentioned it to me once, and I said no,” Mignola said. “I think, let the comics be the comics. Comics are confusing enough for people. Let’s not have two different

Jeremy Renner Turned Down Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Hellboy’ and Has Zero Regrets

Jeremy Renner Turned Down Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Hellboy’ and Has Zero Regrets
Jeremy Renner is known around the world for playing Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the actor says he could have played another iconic comic book character years before accepting the Marvel role. During an interview with fellow actor Justin Long on the “Life is Short” podcast (via Entertainment Weekly), Renner said he was offered the role of Hellboy in Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 adaptation for Columbia Pictures. The actor turned down the project because he just didn’t understand the character.

“I was just reading the script and [thinking] like, ‘I don’t get this…’ I just couldn’t connect to it,” Renner said. “I said, ‘I can’t find a way in [to this character], I don’t know what I’d be doing,’ so I had to say no.”

The decision isn’t one that haunts Renner. “There’s zero regrets, zero,” he said. “Most of the time it’s like,

David Harbour Says ‘Hellboy’ Misfire Was ‘Unfairly Bludgeoned’ By Comparisons to ‘Marvel Stuff’

Lionsgate’s “Hellboy” reboot will go down as one of the biggest misfires of 2019 thanks to its abysmal reviews (16% on Rotten Tomatoes from 192 reviews) and lackluster box office (it barely made over $20 million in the U.S. opposite a $50 million production budget). David Harbour was not one to defend the movie during a recent chat with DigitalSpy and other press at London’s McM Comic-Con, saying the film had “major problems” and admitting that not all of the ideas that went into the reboot worked out. Harbour starred in the title role, replacing Ron Perlman on the big screen after the latter starred in Guillermo del Toro’s “Hellboy” and “Hellboy II: The Golden Army.”

“We did our best, but there’s so many voices that go into these things and they’re not always going to work out,” Harbour said of the movie. “I did what I could do

Hellboy Reboot Dies at the Box Office with Disastrous $21.9M Run

Remember that big, fancy R-rated Hellboy reboot that came out last month? If not, nobody would blame you for categorizing that as an afterthought, given the tepid response. Case in point, it's already out of theaters and it has officially ended its run at the domestic box office with absolutely disastrous results. Even when factoring in the international haul, the numbers aren't pretty and the movie won't even manage to make back its production budget. Lionsgate is going to take a bath on this one.

Lionsgate has officially pulled the plug on Hellboy after just five weeks at the domestic box office. The R-rated reboot from director Neil Marshall (The Descent) grossed just $21.9 million total, after opening with just $12 million on its opening weekend back in April. Considering that the movie came with a $50 million reported production budget, those are really ugly numbers. Granted, $50 million is a great deal cheaper

May 7th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include The Prodigy, St. Agatha, The Nightcomers

May 7th is a relatively quiet day of genre-related Blu-ray and DVD releases, so I’ll keep this installment of our ongoing home media column series on the short and sweet side. If you dig creepy kid horror and you happened to miss it in theaters earlier this year, Nicholas McCarthy’s The Prodigy comes home on Tuesday, and for those of you who might be more into nunsploitation stories, St. Agatha is set to arrive on both formats this week. Cult film fans can finally add The Nightcomers and The Man Who Haunted Himself (featuring Roger Moore) to their Blu-ray collections, and Hellboy II: The Golden Army is making its 4K debut on May 7th as well.

Guillermo Navarro (‘Hostile Planet’ producer) on ‘connecting emotionally with the animals’ in world’s harsh terrains [Exclusive Video Interview]

Guillermo Navarro (‘Hostile Planet’ producer) on ‘connecting emotionally with the animals’ in world’s harsh terrains [Exclusive Video Interview]
Guillermo Navarro “wanted to make use of film language to tell the stories” of “Hostile Planet.” The Oscar-winning cinematographer (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) served as an executive producer on this NatGeo documentary series, which takes viewers to some of the world’s harshest terrains and examines the animals who live there. Watch our exclusive video interview with Navarro above.

In most nature documentaries, “the host is the main source of the narrative,” Navarro explains. “Someone is talking to you, driving you through the process.” Though this series is hosted by Bear Grylls, Navarro wanted to “lower the level of the voice-over” and allow the visuals to tell the story.

He also wanted those visuals to be strikingly different from other shows of its kind. Traditionally, the photography in nature docs is “more observational,” shot “from a distance,

It’s hell for Hellboy as reboot tanks at the box office

Given that it received some of the harshest reviews of the year so far, it will likely come as little surprise to learn that Lionsgate and Millennium Film’s Hellboy reboot has tanked at the box office.

The Neil Marshall-directed movie, which stars Stranger ThingsDavid Harbour in the title role and has a production budget of around $50 million, grossed just $12 million in its opening weekend domestically, debuting in third place behind holdover Shazam! ($24.5 million) and fellow new release Little ($15.4 million).

For comparison, Guillermo del Toro’s first Hellboy movie opened with $23.2 million on its way to $59.6 million domestically and $99 million worldwide, while sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army performed between with an opening weekend of $34.5 million leading to a domestic haul of $76 million and $160 million worldwide.

Oddly, the international numbers for Hellboy are still yet to come in, but comScore is suggesting that the comic book movie added around $10.1 million from 40 overseas markets.

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Hellboy’ Movies Were the Last of Their Kind — and They Knew It

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Hellboy’ Movies Were the Last of Their Kind — and They Knew It
Guillermo del Toro’s two “Hellboy” movies were made before a certain cinematic universe had a name. Marvel’s 21 (soon to be 22) films standardized the assembly-line approach to overlapping narratives and origin stories, and the comic-book adaptations that preceded them by even a few years — like “X-Men” and “Spider-Man” — skipped much of the throat-clearing and presented their heroes as fully formed beings by the second act.

Del Toro and his cast were vocal about wanting to continue this chthonic franchise, a dream dashed against the rocky shores of Hollywood when Lionsgate passed over plans for a trilogy-completing installment in favor of a fresh start. That gave us Neil Marshall’s reboot, which opened in theaters April 12.

Del Toro’s diptych was full of occult trappings and religious iconography, but it eschewed gore in favor of mystical visuals and a familiar but effective message: It isn’t the circumstances of our birth that define us,
