There are dark clouds of cancellation over Hellboy 3
After the smashing hit of Deadpool movie, the crowd for black comedy superheroes had been increased in the entertainment market. This is why, DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics and other movie production companies are introducing new dark and funny superhero.
While, some of them are also reviving their old superhero once again. This is the main reason that Dark Horse Entertainment are reviving its most hit and old bad-ass superhero, Hellboy, with Hellboy III.
The director, producers and lead stars of Hellboy film franchise have already declared in 2012 that they want to make Hellboy 3 and want to end it as a hit trilogy. But, after that they got busy in arranging funds for this movie.
Hellboy 3 Status
Now, the rumours for Hellboy 3 has again risen up, after a single post of Guillermo del Toro, a director of Hellboy, on his Twitter account. He posted in January 2017 about Hellboy 3 that,
“The HELLBOY III is our chance to vote the right way in 2017! If 100k votes come in 24 hours I promise to have a sit down with Da Perl & Mignola”
After this new, on 21st Feb 2017, Guillermo del Toro again posted on her Twitter account that there is no chance for Hellboy III. He posted,
“Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about It.”
This post brings flood of posts related to Hellboy 3 on Twitter by its crew members. First of all, Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy character, posted on Twitter that No GDT Hellboy 3 doesn’t show that there is no future of Hellboy franchise. Then GDT replied on this post and told, for me, it is not possible to take Hellboy in a new direction. So, best of luck for other who want to continue.
After this post, Ron Perlman had also concluded by his post that without GDT the Ron will also not become the part of Hellboy.
All these posts are confirming one thing that it will very hard for Mike Mignola to bring Hellboy once again on theatres and silver screens.
But, he will not give up and he will defiantly find another way to continue this movie franchise. Hence, Hellboy 3 will have someone in the role of Hellboy or it will be the reboot of this franchise.
Expected Distributor and Producers of Hellboy III
If we talk about the production companies and distributor, then we will find that Universal Pictures and Dark Hose Entertainment might again distribute and produce this movie.
