Guillermo del Toro tells Sci-Fi Wire that he already has plans to cap “Hellboy” off as a trilogy should the upcoming sequel prove successful.
“If there was ever a third one, I would really make sure that we at least sign a contract that there is no more. No prequels and no sequels: nothing. If that happens, then there is a third one we have planned, and the seeds are planted in this film” he says.
Guillermo’s adds that the story would go back to the comics pulp roots – “The idea for me is to bring back the Nazis characters, but bring them back in a way they would operate now. Meaning, what public face would the Nazis have in 2009/2010? How rich would they be? How in charge could they be? It’s not this group of freakies that hide in the sewers, but people that are incredibly rich.”
