Universal Studios' Dark Universe franchise is, for the most part, dead in the water right now. But things weren't always so bleak. In fact, the franchise nearly had Guillermo del Toro onboard to direct. Obviously, the movies would be a whole lot different to what we've actually got. Who knows, the Mummy might have actually been good!
Hellboy 3; its been met with numerous setbacks and controversies, some involving the Hollywood whitewash scandal and others in regards to Guillermo del Toro's words that "it will not happen." Yet despite all of this uproar, Harbour looks boss in the role, and Perlman has given his consent. All's well that ends well, I suppose.
You've grown to love the devilish Hell-Boy on the big-screen thanks in no small part to Ron Perlman, who petitioned extensively online not too long ago for a 3rd movie in the franchise. Now, Mike Mignola has some news on the subject.
