If you frequent almost any movie site on the Internet, you know that Ron Perlman has been making a lot of noise about Hellboy 3 lately. He really wants to get the sequel made. While Guillermo del Toro's first two installments in the comic book franchise, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, were considered successful, Columbia Pictures, who released the first installment, and Universal Pictures, who released the second, have never green lit the third and final movie. But as fans grow louder, and Ron Perlman keeps banging his drum, it's possible we could see it happen before the end of this decade. Thing is, Ron Perlman doesn't really want to make Hellboy 3.
Right now, the only ones having the Hellboy 3 conversation is Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro. There has been no word on the studio getting involved at this point. Though, Legendary did make the bold claim that they will finance the movie if Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim 2 proves to be a gargantuan blockbuster hit. Will we ever get to see Hellboy 3? Maybe, but it will be at least 2020 before we do so.Read More
Ron Perlman revealed in an interview last year that he will never stop trying to get Hellboy 3 made, "because the first two films were set up for this huge resolve and he (Guillermo del Toro) already understands what that resolve will look like." The actor wouldn't divulge any details regarding the story of this final installment, and it isn't known if his co-stars Selma Blair and Doug Jones will return for the sequel. Still, the mere mention of Hellboy 3 gets longtime fans excited. When Guillermo del Toro mentioned the title at last year's Comic-Con, the 6,500 fans in Hall H broke into riotous applause.
It isn't known if Guillermo del Toro has actually written a full script for Hellboy 3 yet, but it seems he already has the story well mapped out. The director's next film, Crimson Peak, hits theaters this October, and he starts shooting Pacific Rim 2 sometime this fall. The director recently cleared some space in his schedule by dropping out of Dark Universe, but it isn't known what he will shoot after Pacific Rim 2.

Hellboy 3 has entered the same pantheon as Ghostbusters 3 and Bill & Ted 3. We often hear about these movies, but its not likely that we will see any of them soon.

It certainly sounds like the sequel is starting to heat up, but we've heard this before. And it's not quite clear who is having these talks, as director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman 'talk' about the movie all the time.Read More

We first heard about Hellboy 3 at Comic-Con 2012, when both Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro admitted publicly that they are trying to get the third movie made.
