It breaks my heart that Guillermo del Toro has officially announced that there will never, ever be a Hellboy 3. This wasn’t his choice, its because the studio axed the series after the first two movies made more on DVD than in theatres and now DVD is going away as a format. To me, all that means is that Hellboy 3 would be a good candidate for a Netflix original but instead they decided to reboot. Rebooting actually makes this hurt worse instead of feeling better. Creatively unnecessary reboots are almost never as good as the original or even good, period. And if the reboot happens too soon, it buries the legacy of the original, like they’re trying to make people forget. And surprise, surprise, the new Hellboy reboot is going to be a “darker, more gruesome” horror movie so I guess that means no humor or humanity or warmth from the characters. Maybe they can replace Guillermo’s beautiful and creative practical effects with garbage CGI and crank out a new shitty sequel every year at Halloween, just like they do with every terrible horror franchise. Also, some nobody is replacing the magnificent Ron Perlman. I’m so disgusted. RIP Hellboy movies.
