It was quite a while ago that Ron Perlman really made some big waves by asking the Internet for help in getting HELLBOY III off of the ground. He then hit rewind on the situation saying that he wasn’t aware that “a little goof” of a tweet would light such a fire. Perlman brought in 20,000 new followers within a single day, so naturally he kept the spirit of a third film going.
Director Guillermo del Toro took a poll on his Twitter account asking if fans would want to see another sequel, to a very positive fan response. This led to meetings with Perlman and comic book creator Mike Mignola to further discuss matters of the future.
Fast forward to the present time and it is a sad day for Hellboy fans as HELLBOY 3 will not be happening. del Toro himself posted the following:
HELLBOY 3 would have seen:
"Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film. He has to become the beast of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being."
