It's been five years since we saw Ron Perlman protecting humanity from the underworld in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, but it might only be a few more until he does it again in Hellboy 3.
We thought Guillermo Del Toro was done with the franchise — only because we didn't hear anything about plans for a third — but as it turns out, he's been itching for another!
While chillin' with Perlman at Comic-Con to promote their latest monster movie, Pacific Rim, Del Toro announced, "I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3]."
According to the 62-year-old actor who plays the titular character, they want to finish the story the way Del Toro intended to finish it. The Sons of Anarchy star explained:
"The [first] two movies were really set up to have this unbelievable resolve. Everything that was done in both movies was leading up to this destiny, written in stone, of what Hellboy has been summoned to Earth to do. To not do it, particularly in light of the scope that Guillermo is thinking of for the resolve, would be in my mind a little bit of a shame."
We did think the sequel was better than the original, so we wouldn't mind a third. Plus, Perlman's got a good point about that ominous destiny hanging over Hellboy's head in both movies.
Are U crossing your fingers that Hollywood gives Del Toro another shot to complete his Hellboy trilogy?
