Hellboy III has practically joined the ranks of all those other sequels and ideas for movies and franchises that were rumored but never took off, either because of a lack of funds, or the actors or directors lost interest, or any number of other reasons. Guillermo del Toro has still remained enthusiastic about his Hellboy series — as he is about all of his other projects — and today he decided to see how many of his fans are still hoping for a third installment.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been releasing so many clips lately that you can almost watch the entire movie before its premiere without leaving your computer. Most of them have included information we already know or serve to introduce us to some of the beasts we’ll meet, but one of the new ones released today touches on a very important detail: the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
For a while there, it seemed like the only sure things in life were death, taxes, and Ron Perlman talking up the possibility of a Hellboy 3. Even just scrolling back through our own archives, you can find multiple attempts by Perlman to either talk up the chances of a sequel or get fans to pitch in on the project. Even after Guillermo Del Toro went dark on the subject, Perlman continued to hold out hope that another film would get made.
It’s been an uncertain road getting there, but Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix Trollhunters is finally here. Straight from New York Comic-Con, check out the first official trailer for the December premiere, along with a brand-new poster.
Our last check in with Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix Trollhunters came with the tragic passing of voice actor Anton Yelchin, but the animated series is ready to move forward at New York Comic-Con. New photos from the series reveal a host of magical creatures, while del Toro discusses preserving one of Yelchin’s final roles.
Just days behind the new Voltron debut, Netflix’s next major animated series is already gearing up. Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters has officially confirmed a cast, including Hellboy favorite Ron Perlman, Star Trek vet Anton Yelchin and more from the “family event series” due in December 2016.
The list of actors that want to join Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2 just keeps growing. As teased in the post-credits scene from the first film, the sequel is adding comic book fave Cable to the mix, which has inspired a few actors of a certain…aesthetic to begin campaigning for the role of the Merc With a Mouth’s badass new antagonist. Hellboy star Ron Perlman is the latest actor to make a case for his casting as Cable, and as far as social media campaigns go, he could very well give Stephen Lang a run for his money.
It was with a heavy heart that Ron Perlman, frequent collaborator of Del Toro and star of the Hellboy franchise, clarified that a third Hellboy film ‘probably will never happen.’
Ron Perlman has long been the sort of actor who can perform beautifully both as a regular human and under loads of make-up and prosthetics, which makes his casting in Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them exciting — is he playing a Fantastic Beast, or one of those who finds them? Fans of Perlman in heavy make-up can rejoice because he’s playing a beast…sort of.
