The “Pacific Rim” movies were conceived in a way to make it into a huge franchise. “Pacific Rim” animated series and comic books are being developed along with the sequel of the film.

“Hellboy” has come up again as del Toro in the San Diego Comic Con has mentioned his desires to come up with a sequel to the heart warming tale.  The fans have welcomed back the saga of the long untold tale. The sudden halt in the series of “Hellboy” had somehow capped the storyline but the interest of the “Hellboy” fans continues to be unfathomable. Sources reports that Del Toro and Ron Perlman wants to finish their trilogy but is unable to do so due to lack of funds. All we can say about “Hellboy: 3” is that Guillermo del Toro definitely has planned the plot in his head, however none seem to give a push to the project atleast any time soon.

As a die hard “Hellboy” fan we can only hope that the sequel runs the theatre as soon as possible, and not be dumped into the cold storage.
