Ron Perlman, like us, has gotten tired of the long hiatus and has decided to take to social media to demand an end to the comic film trilogy with Hellboy 3.
Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let's get this muthafucka trending, y'all! Let's end the trilogy; we earned it!

Of course, as you know Hellboy is the comic on Dark Horse by writer-artist Mike Mignola, and featured a demon Anung Un Rama who is summoned by Nazi occultists. Hellboy wants to do good though, and is rescued by Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, head of the United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence (BPRD). And it is under the BPRD Hellboy fights against all the uglies that go bump in the night.
From what we saw in Hellboy 2, his destiny would be one that would plunge the world into darkness, so whether he turns his back on the throne of hell for protect us from the paranormal is definitely the storyline we’d love to see.
Guillermo del Toro, the director of previous Hellboy films has also been very vocal about getting the third instalment to Hellboy made, but the project has since failed to be greenlit for production by the studio based on financial projections. By no means was Hellboy 1 & 2 flops, but it didn’t make the kind of figures the studio wanted so they see Hellboy as a financial risk. That’s Hollywood for you.
