NYC COMIC CON 08: Wanted & Hellboy

All I have to say is that the new trailer is sick. Timur Bekmambetov (Day Watch) is an amazing action director and his car chase scenes will blow your mind. I mean, he's the master of having cars drive on surfaces that are not meant to be driven on. For example, on the side of a city bus that it just leveled. The only thing I gathered from the panel was that in the comics the characters wear costumes, and Timur refused to have his actors wear them because he doesn't believe they were realistically incognito. See Hitman for an example of what he did not want to do.

Hellboy 2
1) Guillermo del Toro is a really funny guy. The last person to ask a question from the audience was a 15-year-old named Nick and when he said his age, Guillermo said, "Ay, the pubes are popping." So humiliating--thankfully Guillermo realized that and boosted the kids ego by promising to dedicate a sketch of a "ball licking giant 3-headed dog" that didn't make the cut on his website to him. So try to find that.
2) Doug Jones, who plays Abe Sapien, also happens to be the body for the Silver Surfer in the Fantastic Four films and he informed the crowd that he did sign a 3-picture deal to portray Silver Surfer, so there's hope for a full film about the character.
