Del Toro Wanted Bruce Campbell In 'Hellboy 2'
I want to thank everyone who e-mailed me the following bit including; Brandon, 'JamesBondCJA', Corey, Alex, 'Evil Flip', and 'Ubatuber'. Just the amount of people sending me this news article shows how huge the next bit of news is and how important it is to Bruce fans. Well Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy) is making a sequel to Hellboy and was asked if he was going to add any of "Mike Mignola's mythical characters from the Hellboy comic book" into Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. Del Toro says that he wanted to use the character of Lobster Johnson in the sequel and would have had Bruce Campbell play him but the creator Mike Mignola is "very protective" of the character and didn't want Del Toro to use the character in his script for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. Here is an exceprt of Del Toro's response on what characters would be in the sequel and the mention of Bruce:
"We have Johann Krauss joining the BPRD. Sadly, Mike is very protective of Lobster Johnson or I would have Bruce Campbell do it in a second!!! And hopefully the studio will go for a little Kroenen cameo that I wrote!!"
I loved the first Hellboy, so if the second is a hit as well, we could possibly see Bruce in the third Hellboy and not the upcoming one because I think Del Toro has already finished his Hellboy 2 script without the character of Lobster Johnson.
