The star of the upcoming Hellboy remake, David Harbour, has stated that he didn’t want his performance to be anything like Ron Perlman’s take on the character.
The Hellboy reboot is on its way. It’s been over a decade since Hellboy 2: The Golden Army from Guillermo del Toro and it’s time for a new movie featuring the demonic hero. The first two Hellboy movies were loved by fans but a third one never saw the light of day. However, this new reboot is looking to be a great one with David Harbour as the titular character. The star of Netflix’s Stranger Things is ready to take on the role and the challenges that come with it. In an interview with Empire, David Harbour shared his thoughts on playing the role after Ron Perlman.
[Perlman] does something quite extraordinary in those films that is very specific to him, and I did not want to imitate that in any way. In our movie Hellboy’s younger. He’s rougher. He’s much more of a teenager. He’s really struggling with the idea of whether or not he’s a good person.
Empire has also released a brand new image from the reboot, giving fans a fresh look at Harbour as Hellboy.
David Harbour definitely has some big shoes to fill and it will be interesting to see what he’s going to bring to the character. Audiences will always compare him and Ron Perlman, but Harbour’s determination to try and create something very different from Perlman surely is something to be excited about. Harbour did a fantastic job in Stranger Things and his commitment as an actor seeps through the characters he plays and audiences can definitely expect that in Hellboy.
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.
Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
