New Creatures of ‘Hellboy II: The Golden Army’ Profiled
The mind of Mike Mignola has always been a fountain of creativity when it comes to bizarre creatures, mood-setting locations and complicated characters, but it looks like the crew charged with bringing these elements to life for Hellboy II: The Golden Army is doing a bang-up job of it.
As part of their extended, on-location Hellboy II coverage, SuperHeroHype has posted a profile of some of the new characters and creatures appearing in Hellboy II. They include B.P.R.D. member Johann Kraus, whose spirit is contained in a suit after a seance gone horribly wrong; Wink, a massive cave troll; and Cathedral Head, a creature whose head is, well… a cathedral.
Easily one of the more unique characters and one certainly in the vein of the creatures from Mignola’s comics Is Cathedral Head, the proprietor of a map shop in the Troll Market whose head is literally a giant church with stained glass windows that light up brightly while his eyes are controlled by servos. It’s unlikely that Cathedral Head has any sort of big speaking role—he doesn’t have a mouth after all—but he’s likely to be one of those cool background characters worth freezing the DVD to admire.
Well there you go.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army opens July 11.
