Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman may be interested, but creator Mike Mignola says there will not be a ‘Hellboy 3’

While the fans may be clamoring for another Hellboy film, the comic book’s creator Mike Mignola says it won’t happen.

Ron Perlman as Hellboy photoSpeaking to Comic Book Resources about the latest series of the comics, Mignola said that “The biggest problem I see as far as PR for the next billion years is explaining endlessly not only that there’s no Hellboy 3 movie, but it’s going to be explaining ‘It’s a series, but it’s not a monthly series.’”

UPDATE: Seeing several posts reporting this Mike Mignola posted the following statement on his site:

About a third Hellboy film–
There are a couple articles out floating around out there right now that sort of make it sound like I don’t want a third movie made or even implying that somehow I might in some way stopping a third one from being made–That’s just stupid. I have no idea why these things are popping up now. I’m asked all the time if a third film is in the works and I always say there isn’t–Because there isn’t. Simple as that. Of course I would be thrilled to see a third one made. I know Ron would like to do it and I think if ANYONE could talk Universal into it it would be del Toro. After #2 someone at the studio assured me that they would NEVER make a third and that was the last contact I had with anyone at Universal. That was a long time ago and things change and I do hope things will change, but who knows. Certainly it all has nothing to do with me. The fate of a third film is entirely somewhere between del Toro and Universal.

Mike

Fans may not want to hear that because sources report that Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman were still interested in wrapping up the epic story.

del Toro’s slate is already jam-packed for the coming 18 months or so, Mignola’s claim that there won’t be a third movie seems difficult to dispute.
