Director Guillermo del Toro is really attached to the Hellboy movie series. He pushed for the first sequel to happen, and is naturally already thinking about a third Hellboy movie. And he has already expressed interest in returning to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy franchise when his schedule clears up. Here below his response about Hellboy 3:
He also stated during an interview given to SciFi that Hellboy 3 would likely be the closure of the Hellboy movie franchise:
Quite sad to hear Hellboy 3 will be the last movie, but glad that Del Toto and Universal still have the big red hero on their minds for now. And a release of Hellboy in 2012 that's not so far.
Of course Ron Perlman would reprise his role, he clearly stated that he loves the job (as long as del toro is helming the project that is).
What plot for Hellboy III?
Well HBII brought a bad omen: Hellboy is still alive but that's not without a price... We've heard the dark prophecy: Hellboy could get his long horns back and transform into the harbinger of death for Mankind in the future...
So I guess Hellboy 3 would deal about this issue.
Impatient to know more about the movie Hellboy 3!
