'Hellboy' Creator Shares First Look At David Harbour As Devilish Supehero

While he is best known to modern audiences as Chief Harper in Netflix's massive hit Stranger Things, actor David Harbour takes the next step away from "that guy in those films" to superstar with Lionsgate and Millenium debuting a first look at the actor as the new, rebooted, but somewhat familiar-looking Hellboy.

Directed by The Descent helmer Neil Marshall, the Hellboy reboot is billed as a gritty take on the Hellboy comic story, meant to be more mature than the del Toro-directed films of the mid-2000s.

A few fans responded with nostalgia for Ron Perlman's take on the character. It's worth noting that it's not certain that that's the reboot's official Twitter account, but the picture does appear to be pretty damn official-and completely badass. Unfortunately, Harbour's original tweet has since been deleted, but we managed to acquire a screenshot of it before it was removed.

Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next day or so and Katia could be near major hurricane strength at landfall. Jose and Katia strengthened Wednesday afternoon, bringing the number of hurricanes churning in the Atlantic basin to three.

Others were impressed by the similarity of the two actors in costume. 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". "Neil said from the very beginning that he wanted to walk a razor's edge between horror and comic book movie, which was music to my ears, because that's what I was shooting for in the script, and precisely what Mignola does so well with the comics". Harbour is joined by Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, and Daniel Dae Kim who replaced Ed Skrein after a whitewashing backlash.

"Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen" doesn't as yet have a concrete release date, but is now slated for sometime in 2018.
