I would've much preferred an animated movie, or even an entire animated series if it meant having Perlman back as Hellboy, even if it was CG. No GDT is understandable due to having other commitments, but no Perlman is an outright crime.

I'm in the minority of people who didn't like del Toro's take on the franchise. Perlman was fine, but he's not that big of a loss to me. I'm interested to see a new take on the character.

I really enjoyed them, personally. Easily some of the most unique films in the genre, and personally I feel that they were ahead of their time. Back when movies like The Dark Knight and Iron Man,  while great in their own rights, were tiptoeing around the more outlandish elements and lore of their source material, the Hellboy films truly embraced the absurdity and weirdness of comic books in a way that we never really saw again until Guardians of the Galaxy. And to be honest, I feel like hey hold up better for that very reason.

I can see that, but I never really clicked with the films when they were out, and I found out why when I read the comics- I much prefer Mignola's original stories. That, and frankly, I think del Toro is better in theory than in actuality.
