Ron Perlman wants to return for Hellboy 3 and 'finish the trilogy'

We would love to see it.

Ron Perlman says he "would love" to return as Hellboy in a sequel to his previous outings as the superhero.


Almost 20 years after the actor transformed into the red-skinned character in 2004’s Hellboy, before doing so again in Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008, Perlman has spoken out about potentially reprising the role.

For some 15 years there has been talk of a third installment with Perlman and writer-director Guillermo del Toro returning, but this has never come to pass.

Instead, the half-human, half-demon character was brought back in a 2019 reboot starring Stranger Things' David Harbour, though this was not a hit at the box office and was panned by critics.

Ron Perlman wants to return for Hellboy 3

While attending a premiere of the Kuwaiti movie How I Got There, Perlman was asked by Geek House Show if he would every consider coming back as Hellboy if he was given the opportunity.

In response, he said:


“If we were to make the third movie of the trilogy, I would love to do that, yeah.

“It was meant to be three movies, so I would go back and do it if we could finish the trilogy. But those are the only circumstances.”

However, if Hellboy 3 is ever going to be made, audiences will most likely be waiting a long time for it given that a new movie focusing on the character created by comic book artist and writer Mike Mignola is in the works with Jack Kesy (The Outpost) in the lead role.

Titled Hellboy: The Crooked Man, it is expected to arrive in cinemas next year. For more on the project, see here.
