Hellboy Retitled for the Malaysian Market

The Star reports that the Hellboy movie will be retitled “Super Sapiens” for the Malaysian market to avoid controversy…

Adapted from the Dark Horse comic and known as Hellboy worldwide but re-titled for the local market after last year’s Daredevil controversy, Super Sapiens has Perlman in the title role of Hellboy, a demon child plucked from home by a wizard’s spell. Raised as a force of good, Hellboy grows up to be a full-fledged demon in the form of a man, with fierce red skin, a tail, a giant armored glove, and two large circles where his horns should be to boot. Hellboy grows up to be an investigator of the paranormal, and accompanying him are the Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) and the pyrokinetic Liz Sherman (Selma Blair).

Go Super Sapiens!!
