Del Toro and Perlman to meet up and discuss Hellboy 3

2 min read

It’s been almost 9 years since fan-favourite Hellboy graced cinema screens. After the last film Hellboy: The Golden Army set up what looked like a potential sequel, fans have been begging for another sequel. And while star Ron Perlman has always been keen on the idea of returning to the character despite the lengthy prosthetic and make up it takes to play the role, writer and director Guillermo del Toro has had other things on his agenda and not been too keen on returning back to the Hellboy Universe.

Although Perlman has previously admitted that it will probably never happen, it seems that fan power is having the last say in the matter. The director put together a twitter poll and promised that if he got 100 000 votes, he would consider sitting down with Ron Perlman and Mike Magnolia (the creator of the comics) to discuss the possibility of a third film. 100 000 votes he got – eventually finishing at 115 000 vote to be exact  True to his word, that director has announced that he will arrange a chat about the 3rd film:

This is no confirmation that the movie is going to happen and if it is, it may still take several years before any of their schedules will line-up. However, this is still more hope than fans have received so far about a sequel, so there is promise that it could be in the works.

I would love to see another Hellboy movie. They were outlandish and crazy at times, but good fun and something the superhero world needs to change-up and be different from the rest of the comic book movies we are seeing. Are you excited for a new Hellboy movie or do you think, much like Half-Life, this one is going to struggle to make it to the three count?

A man of many talents, but no sense how to use them. I could be discovering the cure for aids or finding ways to achieve world peace, but I’d rather be watching movies and writing here instead.

    I’m quite fond of HB1&2

      “Quite fond”? Oh come now, you can do better than that! I mean, I’m “quite fond” of two-ply toilet paper. But I LOOOOVE Hellboy.

      Then again, in those desperate times (i.e. after a curry night), I do rather prefer the two-ply…

        Saying “quite fond” is high praise coming from me, as I loathe most things

      • Hammersteyn

        two-ply from the fridge

          For the “white-pipe” syndrome…

      Ah, I ‘member HB 1&2 🙂

      • Admiral Chief

        Hah, member berry bob

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL Member Berries!

  • Original Heretic

    I’m surprised they only got 115 000 votes! WE ALL WANT THIS MOVIE TO HAPPEN!!

      Hell Yeah!

  • MonsterCheddar

    Cool stuff.

  • Hammersteyn

    Apparently Perlman despised the amount of time it took to do his make up. Hence the lack of the third

    • Original Heretic

      4 Hours of make-up. And that was whittled down from an initial 6 hours.
      But since then he had said that he would go through it all again to do number 3.

        • Original Heretic

          If he needs money, then he spends far too much. He’s one of the most prolific actors, ever.
          And he had the most awesome death scenes in movies.

            His role in The Blacklist TV show was also great.

            I do wonder, though: I do not think he earns as much as some other actors though

  • Galbedir

    Hell yeah!
