We caught up with Hellboy II: The Golden Army writer/director Guillermo del Toro at the New York Comic Con, and while we'll have more of what he said soon, here are some of the big highlights!

Del Toro told us that Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy," "American Dad!") has replaced Thomas Kretschmann as the voice of Johann Kraus in the "Hellboy" sequel. In related news, the "Hellboy II" viral site has gone live.

Guillermo said that we'll know in four or five days whether all the legal stuff on The Hobbit and its sequel has been worked out and if he'll be moving ahead.

Del Toro added that his next small movie will be something called Saturn and the End of Days, about a young boy watching the end of the world while walking back and forth from the supermarket.

More from Guillermo, Ron Perlman and Doug Jones soon. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: If you go to and click on the secret device (or go directly here) and input 7, 11 and 8 from left to right, you'll get a special message.
