Mike Mignola Would Still Like HELLBOY 3
Due to a previous interview makingit sound like the Hellboy creator doesn't want Hellboy 3 to happen, Mike Mignola clears the air on how he feels about a third movie and what would it take for it to become a possibility.
Let's be honest, everybody here on this site knows I'm a big Hellboy fan. Love the movies and the comics. Sometimes every now and then I have a rant or two about how I feel Hellboy 3 should happen. There was a previous interview that Mike Mignola gave and one of the statements he made was:
"The biggest problem I see as far as PR for the next billion years is explaining endlessly not only that there's no "Hellboy 3" movie, but it's going to be explaining "It's a series, but it's not a monthly series." The numbers for "Hellboy In Hell" will continue, but it's going to come out whenever it comes out."
It made it sound like the Mignola didn't want Hellboy 3 to ever happen. Recently Mignola took to Facebook to clear the air on what he really meant:
There are a couple articles out floating around out there right now that sort of make it sound like I don't want a third movie made or even implying that somehow I might in some way stopping a third one from being made--That's just stupid. I have no idea why these things are popping up now. I'm asked all the time if a third film is in the works and I always say there isn't--Because there isn't. Simple as that. Of course I would be thrilled to see a third one made. I know Ron would like to do it and I think if ANYONE could talk Universal into it it would be del Toro. After #2 someone at the studio assured me that they would NEVER make a third and that was the last contact I had with anyone at Universal. That was a long time ago and things change and I do hope things will change, but who knows. Certainly it all has nothing to do with me. The fate of a third film is entirely somewhere between del Toro and Universal.
It seems Mignola is very interested in a third Hellboy film. It's also good to remember that not only did Hellboy 2: The Golden Army get great reviews, but actually nearly doubled its budget. The budget for the film was 85 million and Hellboy 2: The Golden Army grossed about $160,388,063. Mignola is interested, Ron Perlman is interested, Selma Blair is interested, Doug Jones is interested, del Toro is interested, I'm interested. But how about you guys?
