There was a beginning, a middle but no end and fans deserve a conclusion.
That’s the stance veteran actor and the man behind the red paint and blunt horns, Ron Perlman, is taking.
The veteran actor ‘hit a nerve’ he didn’t even know was there when he tweeted out his support for a final movie in the trilogy earlier this month.
During an interview with Variety about his upcoming Amazon show ‘Hand in God’, the topic of a potential third installment in the Hellboy franchise came up, with Perlman saying he is all for it.
“Within 48 hours I had 20,000 new followers on Twitter and 60,000 new friends on Facebook,” he said.
Although he hasn’t spoken to director, Guillermo del Toro, since the tweet went out he does believe the franchise and its fans are ‘owed’ an ending.
“The ‘Hellboy’ was meant to have a beginning, a middle and an end,” he said.
“And there will come a time where he will have to live up to his destiny, which is to be the beast of the apocalypse, or if he has to suppress that destiny by sacrificing himself in some way so as to not destroy mankind but do the opposite.”
Perlman continued explaining that while the script for a potential third installment is in Guillermo’s head, he’s heard enough of it to know it will be ‘mind-blowing’.
“And if you are somebody who followed the first two movies, it will be even more mind-blowing because we have something… if you liked the first one and the second one, we have something really rock ’em, shock ’em in the third one,” he said.
‘Hellboy’ first came out in 2004 and was followed up by ‘Hellboy: The Golden Army’ in 2008.
Both movies performed relatively well in cinemas, with ‘Hellboy’ bringing in around $99.3 million and the sequel making $160.4 million.
