Despite the relatively warm reception from fans of the comic and new fans who were just introduced to the franchise via the films, creator Mike Mignola has confirmed that there are no immediate plans for a 3rd installment in the Hellboy movie franchise.
“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,” Mignola told Comic Book Resources.
Mignola’s statement is fairly disappointing, especially since both Ron Perlman (who played Hellboy in the movies) and director Guillermo Del Toro have expressed interest in wrapping up the story.
Given the fact that del Toro’s schedule is filled to the brim for the next 18 months or so, Mignola’s statement seems to be hard to dispute (unless they try to go with a different director.)
