If you were hoping for a third cinematic installment in the Hellboy franchise you may well be disappointed by what you are about to read.
Despite encouraging talk over the last few years from director Guillermo del Toro, as well as Ron Perlman and Doug Jones, it seems we won’t be getting Hellboy 3, if creator Mike Mignola’s comments are anything to go by.
Speaking in a recent interview with Comic Book Resources about the next phase in Hellboy’s adventures on the page, Mignola said that another installment in the series simply isn’t going to happen.
“The biggest problem I see as far as PR for the next billion years is explaining endlessly not only that there’s no ‘Hellboy 3′ movie, but it’s going to be explaining ‘It’s a series, but it’s not a monthly series’,” he said.
So there you have it. No Hellboy 3. Is this a good or bad thing? As ever let us know your thoughts!
