Ron Perlman Hints That HELLBOY 3 Might Be Happening!
As you know, Ron Perlman has recently been pushing Hellboy 3, and he has been rallying up the support of fans. This is a film Guillermo del Toro has been trying to get off the ground for years, but due to the near-impossibility of financing the sequel, it didn't look like it would ever happen.
Now it seems like maybe Perlman's push to get this movie made is paying off. Last night, the actor posted the following on his Instagram page.
I don't know about you, but to me that sounds like something is brewing. Like maybe Hellboy 3 might actually happen. I don't know why else he would have posted what he did, but it's a huge tease. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but maybe, just maybe, a studio finally stepped up to the plate to give this long-awaited sequel the shove it needed to make it happen. As for what's in store for this third chapter of the story, del Toro previously said:
“The idea for it was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film. He has to become the best of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being.”
Here's hoping Hellboy 3 actually happens!
