For quite some time now, rumors have been swirling over our heads regarding another instalment of the series, directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Yet, now the actor behind the well-meaning demon has struck off all possibilities that a third movie is in the pipeline, confirming that the series is well and truly dead. While chatting at the New York Comic-Con about Netflix animation Trollhunters, Ron Perlman admitted that the Hellboy 3 project is so insignificant that he doesn't even want to give it the time of day by talking about it. Speaking of a future collaboration with del Toro on Hellboy 3, he said:

"We don't talk about that anymore. Because he's busy, and I'm busy"

Having said that though, he did then provide fervent fans with a slight glimmer of hope by saying:

"Maybe one day he's going to call and say, 'Hey, let's do it.' But for right now? We're happy discovering new worlds to conquer."

Ever since Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in 2008, Perlman has been working on getting the third instalment off the ground but to no avail. Yet for a while, it did seem as if we were seeing some movements in that area — only recently a third project crept up on del Toro's IMDB and just last year, the actor revealed in an Empire podcast that he was in talks to continue the franchise, admitting:

"Guillermo told me what the resolve of the trilogy would look like, in broad strokes, and it's such an amazingly theatrical, cinematic idea, that I found it essential that we do it. We were designed to be a trilogy, with a beginning, a middle and an end. We've only done two-thirds, so I feel that we're not really done until we finish it."

This was also posted on Twitter:

Sadly, as it stands, no end to the trilogy is on the horizon. But at least we have Trollhunters to look forward to, right?


Do you want to see a third Hellboy in the making?
