The new trailer for the David Harbour-starring Hellboy reboot has finally arrived to show off some action-packed new footage.
Back in 2004, director Guillermo del Toro and actor Ron Perlman brought Hellboy to the big screen for the first time. In 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the duo returned with a new cast of characters and fantastic story that left the door open for a third installment but after years of online petitions and fan outcry, the trilogy-ending film never came to fruition.
However, the loveable anti-hero is headed back to the big screen played by Stranger Things star David Harbour in this April’s Hellboy. The reboot, from director Neil Marshall, is aiming for a hard-R rating as opposed to the PG-13 ratings carried by the previous two films. Check out the latest trailer for Hellboy below.

Hellboy was originally supposed to be released a couple of months back, in January, but was bumped up to a new April release date, which places the film in a very crowded time for comic book films. Hellboy will now hit theaters one month after the Marvel Studios solo adventure Captain Marvel debuts and one week after Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming superhero origin story Shazam! opens in theaters. This new release window also means that Hellboy will open in theaters just two weeks before another highly-anticipated Marvel Studios film, Avengers: Endgame.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Hellboy as soon as more information becomes available. What’s your opinion on the new Hellboy trailer? Did it get you hyped for the David Harbour-starring reboot or does it make you crave the third Guillermo del Toro film even more? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.
Directed by Neil Marshall from a script co-written by character creator Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden, Hellboy stars David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, and Sasha Lane.
Hellboy will be released in theaters on April 12, 2019.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
