Hellboy Fighting Universal Monsters

hellboy-universal-monsters.jpgWill Hellboy fight classic Universal Studios monsters like Frankenstein, Mummy, Dracula and their associated brides? It's a possibility, according to a recent interview with director Guillermo del Toro, who says:

I must say that I'm having a great experience right now at Universal, because I find that their understanding of Hellboy as a possibility is so great. My hope is that if everything goes well and we continue [the franchise], Hellboy can start fighting the Universal monsters! I would love to see that. [Hellboy creator Mike] Mignola, when we closed the deal with Universal, we both looked at each other and just said, 'Frankenstein!'

This is a fantastic idea, and not just for the movie possibilities. This will also drastically improve Hellboy's chance at becoming a shitty ride, as well as getting into a confusing conversation wherein surnames are mixed-up with interrogative pronouns.

if at first you don't succeed, please don't make a sequel.

Does anyone at Universal remember that they already had their monsters in Van Helsing? Maybe they could get the guy from the Mummy movies to take them on too (but in the 1930's).
