Another smattering of whimsical "Hellboy 2" set reports from Budapest, plus a handful of potential script review spoilers spell a happy day for eager Guillermo del Toro fans!

Let’s start with the (maybe) spoilers. The resourceful Brendan over at Film Ick has got his hands on a script for "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army," and he’s putting together the pieces for you to get a sense of what the sequel’s story might be like.

What sort of villains will there be? Expect figures from old-world mythology including elves, trolls, and dragons. Click here to read the full spoilerific post.

Meanwhile, 12-year-old Maddy Gaiman (daughter of Neil) wrapped up her two-week guest-blogging stint while visiting the "Hellboy 2" set with her dad. (If you’ve read it, then you know how fun it was to follow!)

While Maddy’s nose wasn’t in a book on the set (guess what she’s reading? Stardust, by…Neil Gaiman), she was making fanboys everywhere jealous by hobnobbing with the likes of Doug Jones, Selma Blair, Viggo Mortenson, and of course, GDT.

Some highlights:

Maddy also promises that she and her dad will be on hand (and blogging) at this month’s Comic-Con in San Diego, where he’ll be promoting the August release of "Stardust."

As for "Hellboy 2," you’ll have to wait a whole year for its release on August 1, 2008.
