While fans may be used to seeing Ron Perlman in the role of the titular character, David Harbour ("Stranger Things") will now portray Hellboy and we think he looks absolutely badass!
Director Neil Marshall (The Descent) will be going for a much darker tone than Guillermo del Toro's films, telling Empire that the R-rated film will be " more violent and more bloody. We weren’t making it with handcuffs on.”
Check out an incredible new image of Harbour as Hellboy below.
In addition to Harbour, Hellboy will also star Milla Jovovich as villainous sorceress known as the Blood Queen, with Ian McShane in the role of Professor Broom and Daniel Dae Kim playing Ben Daimio. Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida; and Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan with Sophie Okonedo (After Earth), Brian Gleeson (mother!) and Alistair Petrie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
"The new story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind."
Hellboy arrives in theaters on April 12th, 2019.
