It was with a lot of regret that fans got the news last week that Guillermo del Toro‘s vision for Justice League Dark would not be realized. A super-team made up of DC Comics‘ premier supernatural heroes seemed too inside del Toro’s wheelhouse for it not to happen, but sometimes these things are not meant to be, unlike Pacific Rim 2, which is currently in development and will be released in 2017 in theaters everywhere. Meanwhile, fans eagerly await the news that will assure even the remotest chance that Hellboy 3 might become a reality. But would it surprise you to know that these three projects are all connected in way beyond del Toro’s involvement? In fact, it’s the very epitome of the term “show business.” (more…)
Clockwork Nazis with a portal to hell and ancient elven princes with grudges to bear and invincible mechanical soldiers couldn’t stop Hellboy. What made Hollywood think it had a chance of stopping the third film in his movie franchise from coming to life? Actor Ron Perlman, who portrays the jolly red giant, posted a photo to Instagram this weekend that gave a definite impression that Hellboy III was slowly coming together.
Perlman and director Guillermo del Toro have been working for years to get Hellboy III off the ground. In spite of critical and commercial success with the Hellboy II: The Golden Army, del Toro stated quite flatly in an interview last year that funding the movie would prove to be problematic, especially given the poor domestic returns at the box office for his masterpiece Pacific Rim.
Here’s what Ron Perlman posted on Instagram last night: (more…)
Oh, Hellboy 3 – it’s been in our hearts and on our minds for the last five or so years. Unfortunately, the studio hasn’t been that keen on the idea and Guillermo del Toro is busy making other projects, so it doesn’t look likely to happen anytime soon. Still, actor Ron Perlman isn’t giving in just yet.
Recognizing that comic book fans were able to get FOX to make a Deadpool movie by getting it to trend out of the stratosphere, Perlman is trying to rally that same sort of enthusiastic support for Hellboy III. (more…)
Word is making its way around the Internet that Pendleton Ward is ready to take his beloved series Adventure Time to the big screen. That’s right, Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and the rest are going full Hollywood Feature. (more…)
Are we ever going to see a third Hellboy movie? Ron Perlman is in, Guillermo del Toro is in, …but what about Mike Mignola? It seems it will be a cold day in hell before we see a third installment (…wait, isn’t Hellboy residing in the deep south at the moment?!), but never say never. With the new release of comic book series Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. (out today), creator Mike Mignola is doing the rounds promoting Hellboy’s latest adventures (or should’t that be earlier adventures…) and rest assured, you will not be disappointed with the antihero’s origin story, which essentially covers the unexplored 50 years from his first missions with the B.P.R.D. up until the start of the original comic.

In Jerry Maguire, a five year old Jonathan Lipnicki famously told Tom Cruise “The human head weighs 8 pounds.” According to a report by TheWrap, that’s exactly how many pounds one of Cruise’s next characters might lose. (more…)
There are moments on the Internet where you throw out a wish and someone, somewhere, hears that wish and makes it come true. As I write this I am having one of those wonderful moments. Like a lot of you, I’m totally on board for a Karl Urban Dredd sequel. The problem being that even with all the dedicated fans efforts that made A Day to Dredd movement a success the last two years, the Dredd sequel is still sitting on a shelf in Hollywood limbo. Dredd executive producer Adi Shankar wants that sequel just as bad as the rest of us and while he’s been unable to get the sequel into production, he does want to thank all the fans for their support by creating a free Dredd web-mini-series that focuses on what this Dredd fan thinks are the coolest Dredd villains ever, the Dark Judges.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in 2008, and six years later it’s still not even a 50 per cent certainty that we may ever see a Hellboy 3. Six years between sequels isn’t a big number, there have been literally decades between entries in other movie series, but with two movies that had lukewarm receptions at the box office, and a never ending pile of projects on director Guillermo del Toro‘s plate, it seems increasingly unlikely that Hellboy 3 is going to become a reality. So is all hope lost? Maybe not, because while Hellboy star Ron Perlman remains the biggest cheerleader for more HB, other actors from the cast are letting it be known that they’re ready, willing an able. (more…)
Oh, Hellboy 3 – it’s been in our hearts and on our minds for the last five years. Unfortunately, the studio hasn’t been that keen on the idea and Guillermo del Toro is busy making buttloads of cash, so it doesn’t look likely to happen anytime soon. Still, actor Ron Perlman isn’t giving in just yet. When talking with ComicBookMovie, the former Hellboy himself had a few words to share regarding the possibility of the project and whether he would like to be involved. Scroll on for more. (more…)
Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is scheduled to be released on Blu-ray/DVD next week and we’ve got a taste of what fans might find in the package, besides a lot of giant Jaeger robots fighting incredibly huge Kaiju.
