Fans of Guillermo Del Toro’s two Hellboy films have wanted a Hellboy III for years. Fans grew to love the amazing cinematic landscape Del Toro crafted along with his star Ron Perlman. Both Del Toro and Perlman were the reasons why those two films were so beloved.
That’s why when it was announced that the franchise was going to be rebooted, some fans were underwhelmed. However, many grew excited when it was announced that David Harbour of Stranger Things fame would be taking on the role that Perlman made famous.
With Perlman having passed the Hellboy torch to Harbour, many fans have been wondering about his thoughts regarding the reboot – especially after the release of photos featuring Harbour in the makeup and costume for the film.
Perlman recently participated in a Reddit AMA session, and inevitably a fan asked him about his thoughts on the reboot as of late. Here is the Reddit exchange with the fan, followed by Perlman’s response:
“I’ve made my peace with it. I refuse to answer any questions about it”
Ever since the announcement of a Hellboy reboot, Perlman seems bittersweet that about the whole ordeal. However, he still voiced his support for Harbour taking over and even met up with him.
Although we will never see Del Toro’s Hellboy III, hopefully Harbour will be a worthy successor to Perlman’s iconic take on the character.
Directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers) and written by comic creator Mike Mignola, alongside Andrew Cosby and Christopher Golden, the Hellboy reboot stars David Harbour, Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, Penelope Mitchell, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim.
Hellboy will hit theaters on January 11, 2019.
