No matter what he did, Guillermo Del Toro couldn’t get Hellboy 3 made
About This Episode

Poor Guillermo Del Toro. The man has made both critically acclaimed indies and giant robot-vs-monster movies, and yet he still struggles to get movies green-lit. This week, we learned that Hellboy 3, the long-rumored third part of a planned trilogy, has finally and definitively been declared dead. The director, along with star Ron Perlman and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, met but were apparently unable to figure out a way forward. A.V. Club staffers Alex McLevy and Danette Chavez try to break down what went wrong and where Del Toro should turn next.
