BLADE 2 is nearly the movie he wanted it to be

In an exclusive interview featured in this month's CINESCAPE magazine, Guillermo Del Toro discusses the hotly anticipated BLADE 2, and why he could never direct a SUPERMAN movie.

In talking about both BLADE 2 and his winter release, THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE, Del Toro says, "[BACKBONE] is exactly the way I was hoping it would be when. With BLADE 2, I'm almost as happy with the results. We'll see after the MPAA [which may request cuts to avoid an NC-17] but right now [they] resemble very much what I set out to do."

Despite the high hopes for his comic book excursion with BLADE, Del Toro showed a surprising reluctance toward directing a film with a more traditional hero.

"I could never do a SUPERMAN movie," Del Toro says. "He's too clean cut. I like heroes who are freaks."
