“This is a darker, more gruesome version of Hellboy”
It’s probably best to let go of the notion of a Hellboy 3. Guillermo del Toro dropped this nugget of information during a Reddit AMA yesterday to promote The Strain which airs tomorrow night on FX.
Hellboy 3 has been the subject of a lot of rumors and rumblings over the years. Last summer, when Pacific Rim was hitting theaters, Ron Perlman was lobbying hard for a third installment that would tie up the film series. Things have quieted down since then, however.
Horror icons like the Cenobites from Hellraiser, Predator, Alien and Hellboy get the Manga treatment via artist Matsuda Yuusuke’s vision. Naturally, in this state, they’re adorable. And amusing. Yuusuke isn’t the first artist to interpret horror characters this way, of course, but I thought his pieces were certainly worth sharing.
