David Harbour has just released a new photo of himself as Anung Un Rama, better known as Hellboy, for Lionsgate’s 2019 Hellboy reboot. The image is the first to show the character in his full costume – trenchcoat included – but it’s also in monochrome.
Not too long after the first image of Harbour in the Hellboy costume was revealed, the actor showed off a new image of his own, complete with an apt Rolling Stones quotation:

The image is the first one showing Harbour in Hellboy’s actual trenchcoat, as the full color image only showed the character in makeup. Harbour’s appearance under the makeup greatly resembles the design used by Ron Perlman in the two Guillermo Del Toro-directed movies, which is a great thing considering that those were incredibly faithful to the character’s actual appearances in Mike Mignola’s comics. While it’s still bittersweet to know that that planned trilogy won’t be getting a proper conclusion, it’s great to see that the cinematic future of the Hellboy property looks to be in great hands.
Hellboy will raise Hell on January 11, 2019. The movie’s cast includes David Harbour as Anung Un Rama (Hellboy), Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida, Daniel Dae Kim as Benjamin Daimio, and Milla Jovovich as the Blood Queen.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
