And if you are somebody who followed the first two movies, it will be even more mind-blowing because we have something… if you liked the first one and the second one, we have something really rock ’em, shock ’em in the third one.”
With Del Toro’s films lined up: Crimson Peak (October 2015), Pacific Rim 2 (2017), and Pinocchio announced, we’ll have to wait for the third Hellboy to arrive.
