Hellboy The Crooked Man Dark Horse Comics

Hellboy fans have reason to celebrate as Millinium’s Hellboy: The Crooked Man has wrapped production. The man behind the iconic character, Mike Mignola, expressed his enthusiasm for the project in a social media post on his official Instagram page.

Earlier this week, Mike Mignola expressed his support and excitement for the latest Hellboy reboot on social media. With his endorsement, Hellboy fans can rest assured that the film stays true to the essence of the beloved character and his rich mythos.

Hellboy: The Crooked Man is set to take fans on a journey through one of the most beloved issues of the original comic series, promising to expand the titular character’s world and explore new depths of the Hellboy mythology. Leading the cast is Jack Kesy, known for his role in Deadpool 2, with the 36-year-old actor stepping into the shoes of Hellboy himself.

Hellboy and his history on the big screen

The original Hellboy movie, released in 2004, was directed by Guillermo del Toro and starred Ron Perlman in the lead role. It was a critical and commercial success, spawning a sequel, titled Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Despite the popularity of the franchise, plans for a third installment were scrapped by the studio, leaving fans disappointed.

The announcement of a Hellboy reboot came in 2017, with Stranger Things breakout David Harbour attached to star and Neil Marshall set to direct. However, the film received mixed reviews and was a box office disappointment. It seemed unlikely that a sequel would be made, let alone a complete reboot of the franchise. However, Millennium has revealed its intention to breathe new life into the series, with Brian Taylor at the helm.

Brian Taylor is best known for his work on the Crank series, which he co-directed with Mark Neveldine. The films were known for their over-the-top action sequences and unconventional storytelling, which won over fans of the genre. Taylor has also directed other action films, such as Gamer and Mom and Dad, both of which received mixed reviews. It remains to be seen what his vision for the Hellboy reboot will look like, but fans are cautiously optimistic about his involvement.
