With "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" out on DVD now, the future is looking bright for a third installment for the franchise. Right now director Guillermo Del Toro has a lot of films on his schedule, including the upcoming "The Hobbit," the prequel to the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
Del Toro was asked how he would feel if Universal had a new director replace him if he was too busy to make a third film.
"It's not up to me and if they want to go that route then it would happen that way, I don't control the franchise. I would love for them to wait after all...I would love to do the third one and finish this incarnation of Hellboy the way we started it, consistent with the way we started it. But, it's up to them. The reality is that those are not decisions under a director's control."
Then there is the possibility that there will be a B.P.R.D. (the secret branch of the government that Hellboy works for) spin-off film, since technically Hellboy leaves at the end of the second film.
"I would love to watch it. Because in reality the way Mike (Mike Mignola, owner of the Hellboy characters) has set it up, it could happen," Del Toro said. "And I would love to see Johan and Abe and everybody. That would be great. I personally would buy the DVD when it comes out."
