hellboy+3There will be no “Hellboy 3.”

The third installment to the popular Hellboy series is a no-go, director Guillermo del Toro informed fans via Twitter.

Guillermo has been very public for weeks that he was interested in doing one more superhero picture, following up on the 2004 original and 2008′s “The Golden Army.”

“Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it,” Guillermo wrote.

A few minutes later, Perlman also commented on the film being scrapped. “Superhero seeks employment. Likes, pizza, cats, and the Marx bros,” Perlman tweeted.

In January, the director posted a poll on his Twitter feed, asking fans directly if they were interested in the series being bookended in a third installment. With nearly 130,000 taking part in the poll, the result was a resounding “Yes.”

But it’s not happening – and for now we don’t know why.
