Hellboy and Hellboy: The Golden Army are a lot like the first two Blade movies in that they don't get the credit they deserve. These were two movies that came before the huge comic book movie boom that we live in now, and aside from die-hard fans, no one really appreciates them as much as they should. Director Guillermo Del Toro has been passionate about the series along with star Ron Perlman and the rumors of a third movie have been circulating for years. Well it appears that Hellboy 3 has left production hell and is never to be.
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

While it's sad to see this series die it is good that del Toro is confirming that this is not happening. The "what if's" and "maybe's" and "someday's" of franchise movies can be exhausting. A definitive answer, even if it's a "no", is better than limbo.
