Earlier today, Guilermo del Toro went to Twitter to talk about a project many had started to give up on. Hellboy 3.
Yes, you read that correctly. The director posted a poll asking fans if they wanted to see the film – with two options. Yes or Hell Yes.
The purpose of the poll, as stated by Del Toro:
The HELLBOY III is our chance to vote the right way in 2017! If 100k votes come in 24 hours I promise to have a sit down with Perl[man] & [Mike] Mignola.
Here’s the actual tweet (poll) itself:
Informal poll (let's see how many votes we get in 24 hours)

Earlier this year, Ron Perlman (jokingly) announced that he will run for President in 2020 – saying that he’s using his status as a celebrity to do so:
He also said he’s working on making Hellboy 3 happening, but other than that, this is the biggest news regarding the subject in quite some time. Here’s hoping this poll will help!
The first Hellboy synopsis: At the end of World War II, the Nazis attempt to open a portal to a paranormal dimension in order to defeat the Allies, but are only able to summon a baby demon who is rescued by Allied forces and dubbed “Hellboy” (Ron Perlman). Sixty years later, Hellboy serves as an agent in the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, where he, aided by Abe Sapien (Doug Jones), a merman with psychic powers, and Liz Sherman (Selma Blair), a woman with pyrokinesis, protects America against dark forces.
Hellboy 2: The Golden Army’s synopsis: Hellboy (Ron Perlman), his pyrokinetic girlfriend, Liz (Selma Blair), and aquatic empath, Abe Sapien (Doug Jones), face their biggest battle when an underworld prince (Luke Goss) plans to reclaim Earth for his magical kindred. Tired of living in the shadow of humans, Prince Nuada tries to awaken an ancient army of killing machines to clear the way for fantasy creatures to roam free. Only Hellboy can stop the dark prince and prevent humanity’s annihilation.
