Who wants to see another movie about the demon superhero? Apparently still a lot, as Hellboy 3 is currently being discussed, with star Ron Perlman saying he?s still willing to reprise the role.
However, the 65-year old actor is not so keen about donning the costume again, but feels he is obligated to return as the comic book-adaptation character ?for the fans.?
?Let me make the record clear.?I don?t want to do Hellboy 3. It?s a pain in the ass to put that makeup on and take it off. But I feel we?re obligated to finish the story. That?s it. End of conversation,? said Perlman while he was promoting Hand of God during the 2015 Television Critics Association press tour, an article from Screen Rant said.
Nevertheless, he believes this movie, to be helmed once more by director Guillermo del Toro, will be ?epic.?
?It?s in Guillermo?s head. And he?s shared enough of it with me to know that it will be mind-blowing. I mean it will be mind-blowing. It will be great cinema. And if you are somebody who followed the first two movies, it will be even more mind-blowing because we have something? if you liked the first one and the second one, we have something really rock ?em, shock ?em in the third one.?
Hellboy 3 Plot
So what?s stopping the production of another Hellboy movie? Budget of course. Del Torro shared with Cinema Blend that if he only has the money, he?d be more than willing to finance the third movie of the franchise, but that he only has money ?on rubber monsters,? he said.
If the idea pushes through however, the director is ready for the plot:
?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 best 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.?
Social Media support
So how does del Toro and Perlman hope to make the third movie?a reality? By making enough buzz in social media! This strategy worked beautifully with Deadpool, which is finally getting a movie of his own after a ?leaked? footage of the character started going around social media, creating a much-needed buzz.
Hellboy is a fictional superhero created by writer-artist Mike Mignola. He is a well-meaning demon summoned from Hell to Earth, and part of the US Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. He is described as a large, red-skinned man with a tail, horns (which he files off, leaving behind the signature circular stumps on his forehead), cloven hooves for feet, and an over-sized right hand made of stone. Although a bit gruff, he shows none of the malevolence thought to be intrinsic to demons, and has a strong sense of humor (Source: Wikipedia).
