Many of us were holding out hope that we would get a Hellboy 3 but today those hopes were officially crushed.  Director Guillermo del Toro had this to say today, "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."  It seems that del Toro wanted it, Ron Perlman wanted it and we assume that Mike Mignola wanted it but the studio did not. It's a shame really because the proposed idea for a third film would have ended the saga nicely and completed the trilogy of films.  When recently asked what a third film would have been about del Tro had this to say, "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 beast of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being. It’s a very interesting ending to the series.”  Well at least we got the two films and the animated films to hang onto
