Sometimes a project comes along where the announcement causes fans to instantly picture what an actor or actress might look like in his or her role.
The first official image from the Hellboy reboot has hit the web, giving us our first look at just how Stranger Things' David Harbour will appear as the occult-battling demonic hero in the upcoming movie reboot. Let us know your thoughts in the the comments.
The image Lionsgate and Mignola shared shows Harbour in all his red Hellboy glory, standing shirtless with his classic shorn horns, intimidating expression, and strong jaw out on full display.
Look familiar? Harbour is the second actor to play Hellboy in live action in a major film, with Ron Perlman having previously taken up the mantle in Guillermo del Toro's two Hellboy films. Both looks very accurately capture the essence of the character; and the tone of the respective films will likely merit the minute changes. Harbour has made a complete transformation into Dark Horse Comics' most popular character. A third Hellboy film with the same director and cast was discussed as a possibility for years, before del Toro announced in February 2017 via Twitter, "Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen". He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer.
