Yesterday Guillermo Del Torro tweeted out a challenge to Hellboy fans, did they wanted to see Hellboy IIIand could they get over 100K votes in 24 hours. If both happened, then Del Torro promised to have sit-down meetings with the Ron Perlman (Hellboy actor) and Mike Mignola (Hellboy creator) about Hellboy III. As one would expect, fans picked up that challenge and ran with it easily making the 24-hour deadline. Here’s how it played out on Twitter last night.

Ron Perlman chimed in:

Now here is the important part. Del Torro only promised to meet with Perlman and Mignola, getting meetings with the studios won’t be hard, but perhaps selling them on Hellboy III might not be as easy as asking fans to tweet a vote.

According to The Numbers, the Hellboy franchise I & II cost $142, 500,000 to make (reported budgets) and brought in $260,212,021 Worldwide. Now making almost double your money back seems like an easy decision, but with that much money at stake, it might take more than just one meeting to get things rolling.

Are you ready for more Hellboy?
