The First Fiery Poster Art For The HELLBOY Reboot Has Been Unleashed
The first poster art from director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot has been released and as you can see, it’s pretty badass. It features David Harbour’s version of the character engulfed in flames and holding a flaming sword laid over his shoulder. It’s an awesome visual and it definitely gets me excited about seeing some actual footage from the movie!
Harbour is joined by Ian McShane as Professor Broom, Milla Jovovich as the Nimue, Blood Queen, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida, a witch who has decided that the Blood Queen's wrath has gone on for too long, and Daniel Dae Kim will play Major Ben Daimio.
The film is about Hellboy going to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort and the Blood Queen. But their battle will bring about the end of the world, a fate he desperately tries to turn away.
When previously talking about the tone of the new Hellboy movie, creator Mike Mignola had this to say:
"Well, I mean, if anything, we’re trying to do something very different. Basically, there’s no part of Hellboy that was ever going to be like other superhero movies. And the more Marvel stuff there is, the more DC stuff there is, Hellboy never really feels like—even in the [Guillermo] del Toro things—a superhero movie. It’s so much “big teams of guys, in costumes, running around and saving the world from big cosmic menace stuff...” I believe the new movie will feel even less like a regular superhero thing. The idea with this one was to make it play much less like a superhero film, to downplay the superhero elements even more than del Toro did. This one is much more folklore/mythology/horror, and not “big team rushing into to do battle with whatever kind of stuff."
The movie is set to be released on April 12th, 2019!
