Ron Perlman is interested in doing Hellboy 3. He has taken to twitter asking fans to get Hellboy 3 trending so that maybe the studios will hear the fan base and make another Hellboy film.
Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let’s get this muthafucka trending, y’all! Let’s end the trilogy; we earned it!

Hellboy, which is based on the comic of the same name created by Mike Mignola and published by Dark Horse Comics, isn’t a sure thing at the box office. The first film cost $66 million to make and grossed $99 million and Hellboy II: The Golden Army cost $85 million to make and grossed $160 million.
Director Guillermo del Toro (Crimson Peak) has said time and time again that the third one would require a much larger budget as he wants to show Hellboy becoming “the beast of the Apocalypse.” It is his destiny!
If you were a studio executive could you green light Hellboy III with a budget north of $100 million when you look at the performance of the previous two films?
Will you help to get #HellboyIII trending on Twitter?
