It looks like Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot’s going to bring along witches, giants, and demons when it rolls out on the big screen next year.

Stranger Things star recently spoke with Collider about how excited he is to play the unwilling Harbinger of the Apocalypse in Millenium’s new Hellboy reboot, promising fans a slew of iconic creatures.

"It was the hardest shoot I’ve ever done, primarily because there are just so many stunts in it. It’s  a very action-packed movie. There’s a lot of story, too, and a lot of big scenes, but there’s a lot of action. There’s a lot of me running around, jumping and turning, and punching stuff. It’s crazy! I’m 42, and the fact that no one asked me to do this in my 20s is so insulting. Why did I have to become a super-monster in my 40s?! My bones are not the same as they used to be. It was very hard, in that way, but it’s also really thrilling ‘cause I get to carve out an entirely new mythos to this guy and I get to play on this big palette of witches and giants and demons."

It’s definitely exciting to hear how action-packed the film is, especially since it promises a slew of supernatural elements playing along in the background. Though Harbour complains about all the stunts that he’s been made to do, we’re certain we’re going to have one hell of a ride when the film hits the big screen.

Hellboy premieres on January 11, 2019.
