Here’s Our First Look At David Harbour’s Hellboy
Millenium’s Hellboy reboot may have gotten itself in a bit of trouble after casting Ed Skrein as a Japanese-American actor sparked whitewashing outrage, however it seems like Neil Marshall’s upcoming action-adventure fantasy movie has managed to smoothen itself out. Now, as Hellboy fast approaches production, fans get to have their first glimpse of Stranger Things star David Harbour as the unwilling Harbinger of the Apocalypse.
Hellboy’s Twitter handle has just released the first image of Harbour as Hellboy online and in it fans get to see whether the American actor would physically measure up to his predecessor, Ron Perlman.
Check out the photo down here:
Though many were pleased when they heard that the World Destroyer was getting a new film from Millenium, fans were sorely disappointed that the project no longer involved the original film’s lead star Ron Perlman, and its director, Gulliermo del Torro. Though Harbour’s performance as Police Chief Hopper in Netflix’s Stranger Things was well-received, many were worried that the actor couldn’t capture Hellboy’s spirit like Perlman did.
However, Harbour’s first photo as Hellboy certainly proves otherwise. The Stranger Things star certainly looks like a fish in water in his outfit, and we’re all excited to check out his performance as the Harbinger of the Apocalypse on the big screen.
The Hellboy reboot is scheduled for release sometime in 2019.
