Guillermo del Toro has officially confirmed that Hellboy 3 will not be happening earlier this week on Twitter.

Hellboy based off Dark Horse Comics and Mike Mignola’s comics came to the silver screen in 2004 with Ron Perlman as the titular character. The film earned $99 million worldwide and spawned a sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army. It earned more than $160 million in 2008.

The films also spawned two original direct-to-DVD animated films, Hellboy: Sword of Storms and Hellboy: Blood and Iron. Both films had Perlman voicing Hellboy and del Toro was on board as a producer.

However, Mike Mignola made a groundbreaking statement that the Hellboy franchise is not dead.

Perlman did confirm that he and Guillermo will not be involved with the franchise moving forward.

And del Toro confirmed Perlman’s status.

There is definitely still hope for continued Hellboy movies on the big screen, but it will be without Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman.
