Guillermo del Toro has insisted that Hellboy 3 will never happen.
Taking to Twitter, the director revealed that he had met with all involved parties – presumably this included studio bosses and star Ron Perlman – and the outcome is that the fans wanting to see the final part of the trilogy are going to remain forever disappointed.
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

Perlman commented on the tweet, just to tug on the heartstrings even further;
Superhero seeks employment. Likes, pizza, cats, and the Marx bros. https://t.co/TnWaFlE3tx

Both del Toro and Perlman had previously spoken about how they remained hopeful that a third movie would see the light of day. That looks to now be a lost hope.
