The tone is a good deal brighter than I expected, and honestly seems rather in line with the previous series of films. But this may very well also be a case of the trailer being cut to line up more with the jovial approach of Guardians of the Galaxy (see: Suicide Squad‘s marketing) with the Billy Idol lending itself to more of a party-hearty vibe. More intriguing to me is how it handles the Darkness Calls/Wild Hunt material. We get a glimpse of the giants, and a few other creatures that align with some of the folkore that provides those stories’ respective backbones.
Also, I’m pretty sure I saw Hellboy falling out of Baba Yaga’s house at one point.
More to come, but sound off in the comments!
