Back in October, Ron Perlman seemed to have put a nail in the coffin on the possibility of “Hellboy III,” telling Screen Rant that he doesn’t discuss plans for a third installment with Guillermo del Toro anymore. “(Del Toro is) busy, and I’m busy. Maybe one day he’s going to call and say, ‘Hey, let’s do it.’ But for right now? We’re happy discovering new worlds to conquer.”

Well now it seems like Del Toro might be giving the actor a call if things go according to plan. On Wednesday, the filmmaker teased a possible third film by tweeting an “informal poll” with the options, “Yes” and “Hell, yes.”

He then tweeted that if the poll received 100,000 votes in 24 hours he would discuss continuing the franchise with “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola and Perlman.

“If 100,000 votes come in 24 hours I promise to have a sit down with Da Perl and Mignola,” he wrote.

At the time of publication, the poll has over 22,o00 votes, with Perlman retweeting the message on his account.

Hellboy made his big screen debut in the 2004 film of the same name. The sequel, “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” was released in 2008 and a third film was in development but plans were later cancelled. While fans are always hearing about rumors of a potential “Hellboy III,” this might be the chance many have been waiting for.
