Ron Perlman says Guillermo Del Toro owes it to the world to make Hellboy 3

04.29.2013

Guillermo Del Toro fans know not to expect much from the director, especially sequels. Frankly, it is somewhat amazing we got HELLBOY II out of the guy. With the sheer number of ideas and projects he has floating around his head, following up a finished movie is not high on his list. In fact, we should give up hope on a third HELLBOY movie. But that doesn't mean Ron Perlman is going to.

Perlman told MovieWeb that he wants to make the final chapter of the HELLBOY story because it was always meant to have a conclusion that we have not reached yet:

"I've been giving Guillermo body shots for two years. We both walked away from Hellboy II agreeing that there would never be another one. But, with the passage of time, it became clear to me that he really always designed it as a trilogy. He has a very well-articulated idea of what the resolve would look like and it's amazingly theatrical and is epic in scope and would make for amazing cinema, with or without the first two movies. But there are so many questions posed in the first two films that absolutely need to be answered. I said, 'You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy.' I've been giving him Jewish guilt."

In my opinion, HELLBOY II built on the foundation of the first film and delivered a hell of a lot more entertaining movie. With the level of craftsmanship Del Toro has on display in PACIFIC RIM and potentially CRIMSON PEAK, I can only imagine how awesome a third movie would be. I was tempted to say I would be okay with Del Toro producing the third film and not directing, but HELLBOY was his baby from the get go and it would not feel right for someone else to direct it.

Yeah, Hellboy needs a 3rd film to finish it all out. So many questions! Plus, Hellboy II was such a unique and imaginative film that it simply deserves a 3rd one just to expand on the world Del Toro created.

A glimmer of hope? Maybe? You can't just put an apocalypse prophecy in the third act of your sequel then end things hunky dory and expect us to be cool with it. Hellboy 2 is one of the very best superhero movies we've seen and the story deserves to finish!

Sure

I would love to see another Hellboy. I loved the first one. The second one okay. The only real issues I had with the sequel was Selma Blair. She was just annoying in it.

Yes yes yes. So many places for the story to go, so much more to explore, and such a magical world that's already been established with the first two.

Del Toro HAS to come back and make a third Hellboy film. NeoAnakinPotter already stated the line that foreshadows a third film in his post and I thought that was a clear 'wink wink' to the audience that we would get one more film.

The Hellboy films are vastly underrated films. They're so entertaining and under appreciated. Hellboy 2 is one of the few films where the sequel is better than the original.

Do it!

I would love to see Perlman rock the horns again. He's right; it would be a crime against cinema to NOT make this movie.

I really want Del Toro to return. If not him, maybe Neil Blokamp. But honestly, Del Toro would be best.

"I've been giving him Jewish guilt."

Lay it on thick, Ron. We need to get this thing done.

Oooh, the possibilities....

The way I saw it...it sounded like the seeds for a possible "Hellboy 3" were planted w/ the AOD scene from "Golden Army" :

Angel Of Death: "It is for you to decide. It is all the same to me, my heart is filled with dust and sand. But you should know, it is his destiny to bring about the destruction of the Earth... not now, not tomorrow but soon enough. Knowing that, you still want him to live?....So, child, make the choice. The world, or him?"

Liz Sherman: "Him."

Angel of Death: "The time will come, and you, my dear, will suffer more than anyone."

Now *THAT*..would be one hell of a trilogy ending chapter!

Larry David is the most bad ass Jewish dude.
Anyway, if Del Toro does make Hellboy 3, I hope it isn't a redundant, shoehorned, pretentious pile of shit like Hellboy 2. The first Hellboy movie is immeasurably superior.
