During New York Comic Con, Ron Perlman was at the Trollhunters booth with Guillermo del Toro and was asked a question most people still have. When is Hellboy 3 coming?
His reply was, “We don’t talk about that anymore,” he told Screen Rant, adding, “Because he’s busy, and I’m busy. Maybe one day he’s going to call and say, ‘Hey, let’s do it.’ But for right now? We’re happy discovering new worlds to conquer.”
He later stated that he would love to return to it and finish the trilogy, but it does not look like it is going to happen. Del Toro did say that he already has the story that is of course based off of Mike Mignolas run on the character. For the people that don’t know, Guillermo del Toro’s usual way of doing things is that he will take on a lot of projects, but he will only do one or two of them. For example he was planning on doing Dark Universe, but he chose to do Pacific Rim 2 instead which isn’t coming out for like another two years. But overall the guy is super busy and can’t get every project done.
This news is super sad for every Hellboy fan, but who knows they might reboot it in a few years.
