Though "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" won't be coming out in the theaters until July 11, plans for the follow-up to the action sci-fi film have been made. And apparently, it would generate mixed thought from the fans since report suggested that though a third film may be made, it would be the last "Hellboy" film.

Talking to SciFi, director Guillermo del Toro revealed that whether the third "Hellboy" film will be brought up to the big screen or not depends on the outcome of the upcoming sequel. The good news is he has prepared ideas for it, but on a downer side, he insisted that he won't do more than that. "If there was ever a third one, I would really make sure that we at least sign a contract that there is no more," explained the filmmaker. "No prequels and no sequels: nothing. If that happens, then there is a third one we have planned, and the seeds are planted in this film."

On the third film, he further explained that he would face the big red superhero against the modern Nazis. "The idea for me is to bring back the Nazis characters, but bring them back in a way they would operate now," del Toro revealed. "Meaning, what public face would the Nazis have in 2009/2010? How rich would they be? How in charge could they be? It's not this group of freakies that hide in the sewers, but people that are incredibly rich."

In the meantime, "The Golden Army", the "Hellboy" sequel, is promised to present more actions, crazy weapons and ungodly enemies. In this sequel, Ron Perlman once again comes back as Hellboy to defend the world from evil dictator and his mystical army who are ready to take over the world as the truce between human and the magical world broke. Helped by his team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development, pyrokinetic Liz, aquatic empath Abe and protoplasmic mystic Johann, he works to stop Prince Luke Goss from resurrecting the golden army.
