Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy across two films have been very well loved by many fans who ever since the ending of The Golden Army back in 2008 have been waiting on a third film. Well now its time to just abandon that dream altogether, its not happening.
Confirming the news over his Twitter account, del Toro broke the heart of many fans today with the news.
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

Not only have fans wanted the third film, but del Toro had wanted to do it too, but as we all know, he suddenly got in competition with Dwayne Johnson to be the busiest man in Hollywood. Hellboy himself Ron Perlman more so I’d say was really outspoken about wanting to make Hellboy 3 a reality. Perlman himself sent out a tweet, having a nice little laugh about the situation.
Superhero seeks employment. Likes, pizza, cats, and the Marx bros. https://t.co/TnWaFlE3tx

But all this comes a month after a poll that del Toro posted on Twitter where he asked fans if they wanted a third film and of course it was a “Yes” all across the board. Hollywood is a crazy place people.
Well in this case it is better to smile because it happened. If you’ve never seen or read any of Hellboy’s adventures for yourself, well you can look them up for yourself on Amazon today.
