After much speculation and fervent hope, monster-loving, horror/fantasy director, Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim), announces Hellboy 3 will not occur. Let’s backtrack, weeks ago, del Toro took his inquiry recurred town hall, Twitter, and launched an informal poll with a yes or yes question, asking fans: “Yes” or “Hell, Yes” for Hellboy III.

Despite 68% of “Hell, yes” votes, Guillermo del Toro reports he spoke to all parties and Hellboy 3 “100%” will not happen.

Hellboy staring Selma Blair, Ron Perlman, Doug Jones, premiered in 2004. The red-skin superhero fiend returned in 2008. Now, the trilogy will not occur, but despite the news, del Toro’s love and respect for misunderstood monsters continues and recently announced the second season of the beloved series Trollhunters. Guillermo del Toro told EW.com: “Well, we got very good news about how many people were watching the series, but we got confirmation that the next [13] episodes are go.”

Guillermo del Toro has never failed to cater and reinvent our horror dreams, from the fantasy elements intersecting political uproar of Pans’s Labyrinth (2006) to the colossal alien monsters in Pacific Rim (2013). Also, in 2016, Guillermo del Toro, premiered a project, a public exhibition of his horror and precious artifacts he guards at his “Bleak House” in Los Angeles. The exhibition, “At Home with Monsters” premiered at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and his now on the road heading towards Minneapolis, Minnesota.
