First Look At ‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour As The New Hellboy (Image)

Hellboy

As much as we would like to see the Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy franchise to continue on with Ron Perlman, Lionsgate’s reboot is steering it in a new direction. And with every reboot must come a new cast. Stranger Things star David Harbour will play the title character, with director Neil Marshall (The Descent) taking the new iteration towards a hard-R. This follows a recent string of hit comic book adaptation that have been geared towards a more mature audience. But we didn’t know what Big Red would look like or at least how he would distinguish himself from the first take.

Now that has changed, with the film posting the first look at Harbour as Hellboy on social media. And not a teaser, either. A full body look at the character, one gigantic arm, shaved off horns, gun, and all. Check it out below.

Ed Skrein Walking Away From ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Is The Definition Of A Win For Representation
eelyajekiM   |  

Ed Skrein leaves Hellboy

Actor Ed Skrein is taking himself out of the Hellboy reboot, citing the outcry of whitewashing when he was initially cast as a non-white role from the comic book. That role is Major Ben Daimio, a character who happens to be Japanese. His move is practically unheard of, especially since we’ve been seeing a huge increase in whitewashing in films like Ghost In The Shell, Doctor Strange, Death Note, and much more. When the casting was initially announced, the backlash was swift with many decrying it.

But the Deadpool and Game of Thrones actor believed that “representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voice in the Arts.” More on what he had to say and the importance of representation here below.

‘Hellboy’ Reboot: Lionsgate In Talks For ‘Rise Of The Blood Queen’

Hellboy

UPDATE: We’ve learned that the title for the reboot will simply be Hellboy, the same as the original 2004 film.

It’s being reported that Lionsgate is in the final stages of negotiations to distribute the Hellboy reboot, titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

The movie already has a star and director set. David Harbour, who is one of the stars of Netflix’s Stranger Things, is set to take over the role of Hellboy; while Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct. The original 2004 movie adaptation and its 2008 sequel, Hellboy: The Golden Army, starred Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Blade II) in the title role with Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak) directing.

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Director Says It Will Be R-Rated, Bloody, Have Practical Effects
The Movie God   |  

Hellboy

The first two film adaptations of Mike Mignola‘s Hellboy comic series, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman in the title role, were not the greatest financial and critical successes. They did okay, especially Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but not as well as hoped. Still, the movies have a faithful fan following who were upset to learn that instead of a third movie with del Toro and Perlman, the franchise was to be rebooted with Stranger Things star David Harbour taking over for Perlman in what’s currently titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

So how do you win over those skeptical fans of the original movies, and get them on board with the reboot? Well, a great start is to say it’s going to be R-rated, bloody, and use as little CGI as possible, as director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) said recently.

This year, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army director Guillermo del Toro killed any hopes of releasing Hellboy 3. The director said in a tweet “Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it.” It was unfortunate news for fans who were hoping that a third movie would be released to close out the trilogy. However, there is still some good news for fans who are holding out on a new film about their favorite cigar-chomping red demon.

That’s because a reboot is reportedly in the works, with Stranger Things star David Harbour in talks to play Big Red. Check out more on the story below.

Hellboy 2

Last month there was hope that Hellboy 3 would happen after Oscar-nominated director Guillermo del Toro tweeted that he spoke with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and star Ron Perlman about making a sequel.

It would have been nearly a decade since we’ve heard anything about a potential sequel, with all parties being highly interested in returning to that franchise. Unfortunately, nothing came of it. Now del Toro has confirmed that Hellboy 3 “will not happen.” More on the story below.
