I’ll stick with the originals and animated series. God forbid you to listen to the fans and give them what they clamor for (Hellboy 3) and instead give them what you think we want (reboot). I’ll tell you where you can put that reboot.

If you want to blame anyone for not getting Hellboy 3, blame Del Toro. He was demanding a production budget of somewhere close to $200 million dollars to make this movie. Which is absurd considering neither movie came anywhere close to making enough to rationalize that kind of budget, and the 2nd movie made less than the first. It was a franchise whose box office was showing a downward trajectory. The studio was actually willing to move forward if only Del Toro would be willing to readjust the production budget to something more rational…but he wouldn’t budge. If I were a studio exec, I would have made the same call. They’re not in the business of burning money. Frank N. Furter Pennywise and hellboy you can’t sit with us. You say they should listen to the fans, but I’d argue that they have a bigger responsibility to their employees. Fanboys seem to think that there are no real-world consequences when a studio loses tens (sometimes hundreds) of millions of dollars on a movie. There are consequences.

Have a good time and hang out!
People lose jobs, people with families to support. It’s the studio head’s responsibility as an employer to at least try to ensure that doesn’t happen. Something Del Toro should have been more cognizant of. That’s why I’m not supporting Del Toro’s projects anymore, like he couldn’t get his big head out of his ass to save the Hellboy franchise? Why? Because he wanted Pacific Power Rangers 2?! Who even cares about Pacific Shit?! No one! Pacific Rim was a ridiculous power rangers wannabe piece of crap. No fans are demanding a sequel to that waste of time, he should’ve used that budget to finish the Hellboy trilogy.
