While we don’t know the fate of Hellboy III, we can only assume that it will probably never grace the big screen. Del Toro seems like he has moved on because the first two Hellboy flicks were a struggle to get made and didn’t have the huge payoff that the studios wanted. There is one thing that can be said is that Ron Perlman is Hellboy. No other actor can fill those boots like Perlman. When he was contacted by Spectral Motion to don the makeup and costume as Hellboy to fulfill a Make-A-Wish request by a young boy named Zachary, Perlman couldn’t refuse. Zachary’s wish was to meet Hellboy and also become Hellboy.
In the past three weeks, Spectral Motion has been honored to host two wonderful Make-A-Wish children, Caleb and Zachary. Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary’s wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!
