Comic book fans were able to make their voices heard loud and clear when they demanded Fox make a Deadpool movie and now Ron Perlman (Beauty and the Beast), who starred as Hellboy in Guillermo del Toro's film franchise, is trying to rally that same sort of enthusiastic support for Hellboy III.
Check out his tweet below.
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!— Ron Perlman (@perlmutations) June 3, 2015
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?
