The director of 'Hellboy' says it was wrong for Martin Scorsese to 'segregate' comic book movies away from the rest of cinema.
11 years after the previous Hellboy film, we finally have a new one — which, predictably, is a reboot that invites comparisons with the 2004 Hellboy film.
Judging by its opening weekend at the box office and its pounding at the hands of the critics, the Hellboy reboot looks to be a copper-bottomed flop.

“I care about her a lot and I think she’s making some good decisions and some bad decisions," says Harbour.
“It’s kind of gory, like almost ridiculously so, almost like a Tarantino film,” says Harbour.
Fans of the devilish hero have been quick to point out that David Harbour in his full make up is an absolute dead ringer for his predecessor Ron Perlman.

Director of the first two 'Hellboy' movies insists there are no hard feelings over creator Mike Mignola's new movie plans.

Actor Ron Perlman was quizzed yet again on the future of ‘Hellboy 3′ and gave closure on the speculation once and for all. While at this year’s New York Comic-Con, Screen Rant asked the ‘Pacific Rim’ actor what the situation on the third ‘Hellboy’ movie was. When asked to elaborate, he revealed Del Toro, the maestro who directed the first two movies, simply wasn’t available to do it.
A third ‘Hellboy’ is one of those unrealised movies that fans can’t stop dreaming about – but sadly, the director of the first two films says that dreaming is as far as it’s going to get. Guillermo del Toro, who has long downplayed the possibilities of ‘Hellboy 3,’ tells The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel is “a wish that will never be fulfilled. The reason there’s a ‘Hellboy 2’ is not because the studios were passionate about the first one, it’s because the numbers made sense.
Guillermo del Toro has indicated that his days of directing megabudget studio tentpole movies may be drawing to a close. “I can’t say which ones, but I’ve been offered gigantic movies in the superhero genre, but I don’t like the superheroes that are… nice. “I’m not going to pursue action movies or superhero movies at all any more.
The outcry for a third and final movie in the ‘Hellboy’ trilogy has made itself heard ever since 2008′s ‘Hellboy II: The Golden Army’ made a minor dent a the box office, and now Ron Perlman has given fans a glimmer of hope. It’s clear del Toro’s vision for a trilogy conclusion is indeed epic - so much so it convinced Perlman to do a 180 on the idea - but that doesn’t mean we will ever actually get to see it. Neither instalment managed to boast huge profits during their cinema runs, which is why ‘Hellboy III’ is struggling to secure its financing.
