When talking about the direction to which he is going to bring "Hellboy III", director Guillermo del Toro stated that the third of the planned trilogy is about him being an adult and dealing with the consequences resulting from "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" hinting that the big red demon is most likely to meet his doom. However, that is the one idea that creator Mike Mignola wants to postpone.
When asked to clarify del Toro's statement, "The third one would be facing your destiny, if such a thing exists, and making the ultimate decision," Mignola shared his conflicting idea with the renowned director. "The problem is, what del Toro's talked about to me is that 'Hellboy III' would be the end of Hellboy," explained the comic book artist. "And here's where we have the big conflict."
"My version of Hellboy in the comics is a finite story, but it's going to take me 15 years to get to the ending. If he makes 'Hellboy III' and it's the death of Hellboy, I'm left doing the comic going, 'But I'm not done yet.'"
He then added, "My Hellboy is not going to have kids. My Hellboy is going to die, but I want to be the one who does that. And if del Toro does my ending, there won't be a lot of surprise when I get to the end of the comic." Still, he admitted that he and del Toro haven't seriously talked about the plot for the third film so he couldn't really tell about how the story will go.
The second "Hellboy" movie, "The Golden Army" follows the red-skinned superhero and his BPRD team as they travel between the human world and the realm of magical creatures to stop an evil elf prince from destroying human using the unstoppable and merciless army. Debuted on July 11 in the North America, the movie starring Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, Doug Jones and many others has pulled in $71.9 million nationwide and $95.8 million worldwide.
