Hellboy Creator Rules Out Third Film9.04.13 # News # 6 Comments
Hellboy 3 is a no-go if the word of comic creator Mike Mignola is anything to go by.
It’s potentially disappointing news for fans of the demonic antihero, but Mignola has made it clear that Hellboy won’t be coming back for round three – at least as far as he knows.
“The biggest problem I see as far as PR for the next billion years is explaining endlessly not only that there’s no Hellboy 3 movie,” he said. But it’s going to be explaining ‘It’s a series, but it’s not a monthly series.’”
So it sounds pretty definite. Hellboy, created by Mike Mignola, first appeared in 1993, with the first movie adaptation appearing eleven years later.
But let’s not forget that Mignola might not have the final say on this. Both Ron Pearlman and Guillermo del Toro have previously shown interest in a third movie to wrap up the series as a trilogy, despite Del Toro’s rather hectic schedule over the coming year. So there’s still a small slither of a possible Hellboy 3 movie somewhere down the line.
All we’ll say for now is – don’t put money on it.
