Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro Hot for Hellboy 3

Recently Ron Perlman donned the full Hellboy costume to visit an ill child via the Make a Wish foundation. That act of kindness and love has opened the door to something fans have been craving since Hellboy II blew us all away when it hit theatres several years ago.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Guillermo del Toro and Perlman himself dropped the following tasty nugget of info...

Del Toro tells EW: "I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3]." He says between the Make a Wish event and the youthful Hellboy fanbase, he's interested in completing the trilogy.

The [first] two movies were really set up to have this unbelievable resolve,” Perlman told EW. “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.

As of now nothing is official, but Del Toro says, "We’re going to make an effort to do it. I hope it happens.

We do, too.

The problem I had with the first was the Agent Meyers character.

I know he was there to be the cipher for the audience, but he was a bore.

I MUCH preferred the second film, and would love to see a third.

I love both Hellboy movies equally and it would be awesome to see one more made to complete the trilogy.

Loved the first but I only liked the second. I find that strange considering Del Toro had more creative freedom the second go around.

I'd be interested in a third; especially if they were willing to enact larger dramatic changes with the characters.

I agree, Vanvance. I loved Hellboy, and only enjoyed Hellboy 2.

Really? I liked the first, but loved the second. Going from Nazis to fantastical mythological creatures is always a step up in my book.

They damn well better finish the trilogy!
