Mike Mignola is setting his sights high with the hope of a Hellboy Cinematic Universe spinning out of the rebooted franchise.

"You want to sell a larger world, but you have to pick and choose what goes in there. The challenge for us has been to not lose sight of the specific story, but suggest the elements of a larger story. My hope is that this introduces a lot of stuff that then expands into a Hellboy Cinematic Universe."

Mignola also dove into vague details about the reboot, with has dropped the subtitle Rise of the Blood Queen, in favor of the simplified Hellboy.

It's a very loose adaptation of one of the Hellboy graphic novels. When you have more books out there, you have a lot more to sift through. You can look around at how big the world is, and borrow pieces from here and there.

The newly titled Hellboy, which is shooting for an R-rating, is directed by Neil Marshall and stars David Harbour as Hellboy and Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm. Filming is set to start this fall for a 2018 release.
