Post Hellboy reboot on the way with Stranger Things star

Quote:
Comic book artist Mike Mignola has just revealed that his most famous creation, Hellboy, is going to receive the movie reboot treatment.

The reboot will be R-rated, said Mignola on social media, and be helmed by The Descent and Dog Soldiers' director Neil Marshall. David Harbour, most recently known for his role as Police Chief Jim Hopper in Stranger Things, will replace Ron Perlman as the eponymous red superhero. That's all the information Mignola has released so far, but he promises "more news to come soon."

The reboot news follows original Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro's admission that despite his best efforts, there will not be a Hellboy 3. del Toro's last Hellboy movie was Hellboy II: The Golden Army, released in 2008. In 2015, Perlman revealed that del Toro already had an "incredibly theatrical" plan for what a third installment would entail, and said that the core team behind the series "owe it to the fans" to make the film.

Not a bad director and star for the material (not at all), but I find this odd. I do not see how this has any more commercial potential than a third film with Ron Perlman. It might have less. And I feel bad for Perlman, who is such a solid, fan-loyal fellow and clearly in love with this character. I know he would still love to wear the horns again.

I never really loved Pearlman in the role but let's see because Harbour is also hit and miss actor.

Rather strange thing to reboot. The franchise has proven to have limited appeal no matter how great the reviews/core audience reception is.

I don't know how to feel about this. I LOVE the two Hellboy movies. And I've been hoping and hoping for a finale to the GDT trilogy...

But at least we're getting another one?

I don't want to see another Hellboy film but it could obviously do well if they Marvel it up. There's an audience out there for this type of film. They just don't want it to be Del Toro'd.

But they are saying it will be a hard R and lean even more into the horror realm. Which sounds fun, but not in a Marvel vein.

Ah, I see, so the motivation for this was Deadpool and Logan. So here's hoping we actually get a good film.

My mom loves the Ron Perlman ones and was skeptical about the reboot. But when I told her Hopper from Stranger Things was playing Hellboy, she was like “actually he’s the one actor I could see replacing him”.

Too bad he is not in Marvel, a Deadpool/Hellboy movie would've been cool

The trailer is not very promising. Basically looks like a cheaper version of the first two movies with a lot of terrible Deadpool-wannabe humor.
