The director took to his Twitter account in order to post a poll, asking fans to vote either “Yes” or “Hell, yes” for Hellboy III. So no matter your choice del Toro inches ever closer to his goal. Following his posting Guillermo Del Toro promised that if 100 thousand people vote in 24-hours, he will get the team together and discuss finally finishing up the Hellboy trilogy.

Well, it took no time at all for him to reach 100 thousand votes, reaching almost 125,000 with 68% of people voting “Hell, yes.” Del Toro has already tweeted that he has arranged the meeting with Perlman, who is very much in, with Mignola soon to follow. It’s all very surreal that a filmmaker with the clout such as Guillermo del Toro could kickstart a movie via his Twitter, but stranger things have happened so keep your finger’s crossed.

You can check out the whole series of events below via Guillermo del Toro’s Twitter:

Back in October, Ron Perlman seemed to put all those rumors to rest on the possibility of Hellboy III, telling the press that he doesn’t discuss plans for a third installment with Guillermo del Toro anymore. “(Del Toro is) busy, and I’m busy. Maybe one day he’s going to call and say, ‘Hey, let’s do it.’ But for right now? We’re happy discovering new worlds to conquer.”

Recently del Toro has stepped away from huge productions, allowing Doug Liman to slip in as director of Justice League Dark and Steven S. DeKnight taking over Pacific Rim 2. His current production, The Shape Of Water, is a cold-war paranoia film about a woman who falls in love with a merman (it sounds ridiculously silly but leave it to del Toro to inject a soul, beauty and craft into it), and he is still attached to direct a live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. His most recent released project, the Netflix series Trollhunters  started out as a movie idea before it was relegated to a graphic novel, which then got picked up as a concept by the streaming service (giving the creator more or less free reign). The show just broke records as Netflix’s most watched original animated program. Perhaps he’s revving up the clout needed to get Hellboy III through some studios’ doors. He also has been allowing his massive collection to be put on display as part of a traveling exhibit throughout museums around the world.

Hellboy

Hellboy first made it to the big screen in the 2004, earning just shy of $100 million on a $66 million budget back in 2004. Hellboy II: The Golden Army fared better in every way. The movie currently sits at a very respectable 85 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and it made $160 million from an $85 million budget. A third film was in development but plans were later cancelled. While fans are always hearing about rumors of a potential Hellboy III, this might be the chance many have been waiting for.
