While Ron Perlman’s Hellboy 3 will sadly never be made, the actor has stated that he’s ultimately fine with that and is ready to move on.
On a recent podcast with IndieWire, Perlman was inevitably asked about how his push for a Hellboy 3 ultimately didn’t work. The actor then revealed that even though it bummed him out, he claimed that the fight was still worth it and he’s come to terms with things not working out:
“It’s completely in my rearview mirror. We fought a good fight to get the trilogy finished, that didn’t happen. And I’m very, very, very happy with the world of creative choices that I’m working on now. So there are no regrets.”
Perlman doesn’t seem like he’s super-willing to talk about how the reboot is quickly advancing — particularly since he’s not involved with it — but as it stands, he doesn’t seem to hold not being able to finish his character’s story against the powers that be. Maybe one day, fans can hope for an animated conclusion to grace Netflix, as director Guillermo Del Toro’s Trollhunters series has a home there.
Hellboy will raise Hell at an unspecified point in the future. The movie’s cast includes David Harbour as Anung Un Rama (Hellboy), Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida, Daniel Dae Kim as Benjamin Daimio, Sophie Okonedo as Lady Hatton, Brian Gleeson as Merlin, Alistair Petrie as Lord Adam Glaren, and Milla Jovovich as Nimue (The Blood Queen). An actor for the role of Abe Sapien has not yet been cast.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
