Director Guillermo del Toro and actor Ron Perlman were on hand at the San Diego Comic-Con to promote the upcoming "robots vs. giant monsters" movie Pacific Rim, but couldn't escape the lingering questions of Hellboy 3. Perlman recently endured the painstaking make-up process for the character (something he's admitted that he isn't a fan of) to fulfill a Make a Wish Foundation request of a six year old boy battling leukemia. Del Toro admitted to Entertainment Weekly during the convention that the result of that visit has reinvigorated the director/actor duo's desire to want to make a third installment.

I’ve encountered a lot of kids who are fans of the movies, but to hear the story of this kid who was watching the movies while going through treatment, it really just moved me a lot. I can say publicly that now we are together in trying in that endeavor [to do Hellboy 3], so let's see if somebody finances it.
To make Hellboy 3, or not to make Hellboy 3: that is the question. And the answer continues to change.
Last August, director Guillermo del Toro said he faced a major obstacle in convincing actor Ron Perlman to spend " six hours [in the makeup chair]". Months later, he said the sequel, basically, was never going to happen.
However, echoing comments he made in January, Perlman told a FilmDistrict panel at the San Diego Comic-Con that he would be ready to put the make-up back on. more from Perlman and del Toro >> Posted 07.22.11 by Ryan
Mike Mignola may not be a name known to many movie fans, but it is a name revered by comic book fans. As an artist on such seminal works as DC's Cosmic Odyssey and Marvel's Wolverine: The Jungle Adventure, and as the creator of Hellboy, Lobster Johnson and the B.P.R.D. for Dark Horse Comics, Mignola has firmly established himself as one of the living legends of the medium. At the recent Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), Mignola spoke with MTV about handing over "the keys" to his beloved characters to director Guillermo del Toro, how Hellboy II: The Golden Army was different than Hellboy, and what we might expect to see in Hellboy 3.

Yet another DC Comics character is preparing to leap off of the page and onto the big screen. Guillermo del Toro, director of the Hellboy movies (another comic book character), is producing a big-screen adaptation of Deadman, with Nikolaj Arcel (Island of Lost Souls) possibly taking the director's chair.
The character Deadman hasn't had much success in comic book form, so it's unclear how true to the source material del Toro plans to make the picture. In the comic books, circus trapeze artist Boston Brand is "resurrected" as a ghost by a Hindu goddess so that he can seek revenge on his murderer. Posted 08.31.09 by BrentJS
Lord of the Rings geeks have reason to rejoice this morning. According to the The Hollywood Reporter, fanboy favorite Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) is currently in talks to direct the two-part adaptation of The Hobbit, based on LotR author J.R.R. Tolkien's follow-up to his acclaimed fantasy trilogy. It's a welcome development for Tolkien aficionados, the majority of whom would likely list del Toro as their second choice to helm The Hobbit after LotR director Peter Jackson, who has opted for Executive Producing duties on the highly anticipated pair of films.
Del Toro is currently hard at work putting the finishing touches on Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, which opens July 11, 2008. Posted 01.28.08 by reelz
Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the long-awaited follow-up to Guillermo del Toro's sleeper hit of 2004, has finally wrapped production in Budapest with a release date set for July 11, 2008.
