Guillermo Del Toro Talks HELLBOY 3, PACIFIC RIM 2, & JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK

While talking with the Daily Best ahead of his Comic-Con appearance, Director Guillermo del Toro revealed what film Legendary said needs to be a success in order for Hellboy 3 to get greentlit.



Hellboy fans all around the world are campaigning, so that the Hellboy franchise can finish off the trilogy. While the cast and crew would love to finish the trilogy, Legendary is a bit weary about the decision. Although, at this year's comic-con, Director Guillermo del Toro revealed to the crowd that “they’re listening," referring to Legendary Pictures and Thomas Tull (the CEO), who also attended the panel discussion.

So, what's the hold up? It seems as though it has a little something to do with money. "The hard fact is that the movie’s going to need about $120 million and there’s nobody knocking down our doors to give it to us.” Guillermo del Toro said while talking with the Daily Best. He then continued, "It would be great to complete the trilogy. But in a way I don’t see the world—the industry—supporting that idea.”

Does this mean that the Hellboy trilogy won't be finished? Even though Legendary isn't strong about the idea, the film can still get greenlit if Guillermo del Toro's other film is a big success. Which film are we talking about? None other than Pacific Rim 2! According to the Daily Beast's report, the following was revealed, "Legendary told Del Toro they might throw down for Hellboy 3 if he makes his next film, the mech-kaiju sequel Pacific Rim 2, a hit."

So there you have it! Hellboy 3's fate lies solely in the hands of Pacific Rim 2. Will the 'Kaiju vs Robot' film succeed? Well, considering the fact that Del Toro choose this film over Justice League Dark, I'm sure he has some good things planned. "Warners liked the script, they were very enthusiastic and wanted to green-light it but they wanted it to coincide with the shoot of Pacific Rim 2." Del Toro said referring to Justice League Dark script. "I was put in a very difficult place facing a difficult choice, and I chose to do Pacific Rim 2.” What do you think about all this?
