It takes a lot of attitude and a ton of red paint to cosplay as 'Hellboy,' and this cosplayer is definitely up to snuff.
'Hellboy' and 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' were only modest successes by the standards of superhero movies, grossing $99 million and and $160 million respectively, so the demand for a 'Hellboy 3' doesn't seem particularly high. However, according to Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, a third film needs to happen.
