Kevin Hopps, whose credits include Justice League and The Zeta Project, was a writer on the second animated Hellboy movie, Blood & Iron.

Supervising producer Tad Stones explained that he and Hellboy creator Mignola were also instrumental in the story process.

"He (Hopps) came to Mike's house," Stones said. "We basically told him the story. He basically pitched the story back to us with index cards, and we talked more."

"In the case of both films, Tad and I came up with the general idea and some of the moments," Mignola added. "And then a writer came in and kind of put it in order. And then we went back in and said, 'Well, he wouldn't say this or do this.' Tad and I were kind of there at the beginning and the end."

Stones described the second film as "a vampire tale."

"We wanted it to be all original, but we got to a point where, 'This would be the place where this major character in Hellboy's life would pop up,'" Stones said.

The two Hellboy movies -- both to air on Cartoon Network and be released on DVD -- could lead to more animated adventures, but Stones said he doesn't want a weekly series.

"I want a series of movies," Stones said. "In the second movie, there are things that we really play out. There's a haunted house in the story and the guys split up and each of them has a run-in with ghosts. And you just take the time to really make the moment. That's what I can do in movie that I can't do in a series."
