During the Ron Perlman Q&A in the IGN Theater at C2E2, the genre fan favourite actor Ron Perlman addressed the one question most fans have been wanting an answer to since 2008's HELLBOY: THE GOLDEN ARMY. Will there be a HELLBOY 3?
Taking a boxers stance and punching the air Perlman said, "I've been giving Guillermo (del Toro) body shots for two years. We both walked away from HELLBOY 2 agreeing that there would never be another one. But, with the passage of time, it became clear to me that he really always designed it as a trilogy. He has a very well-articulated idea of what the resolve would look like and it's amazingly theatrical and is epic in scope and would make for amazing cinema, with or without the first two movies.
"But there are so many questions posed in the first two films that absolutely need to be answered. I said, 'You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy.' I've been giving him Jewish guilt."
Perlman then admitted that as del Toro is involved in so many different projects a third HELLBOY might prove logistically difficult. "He's just so busy, but I'm going to keep working away at the body. I'm pushing seventy so he better f****** do this soon."
If we couldn't have another Hellboy movie I'd settle for a B.P.R.D. film, or better yet a TV series.
