Mignola dismisses Hellboy 3 talk

April 9th, 2013 by Marc Comments

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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
