After a long wait, we finally have our first look of David Harbour as ‘Hellboy’! Ever since the rebooted franchise was announced, fans have been clamoring to see what the actor would look like as Big Red and the moment of truth is upon us! Oh, also the logo above appears to the official logo for the film judging by today’s updates on the movie’s Twitter and Facebook page. With production set to be beginning in the middle of this month it looks like they’ve finally started up, or at least they’re doing some makeup tests.

Director Neil Marshall had some big shoes to fill with Ron Perlman and the uncanny resemblance from this shot looks like he might be able to pull it off, at least visually.

The image comes to us directly from the Hellboy Twitter Account and as you can see below, they’ve done the character justice!

I’m seriously stoked at how amazing this looks!

UPDATE: Soon after the Hellboy Twitter account posted their image, actor David Harbour shared this photo of Hellboy on set:

As continued casting news has popped up from Ian McShane as Doctor Broom, and Milla Jovovich as The Blood Queen, to Sasha Lane possibly signing on as Alice, everything just sounds to be coming together. I’m hoping that Marshall and the rest of the cast and crew will be eagerly sharing some of the early production of the film with us as I’m sure that many fans are dying to know more.

What do you think of the first shot of David Harbour in costume and makeup as ‘Hellboy’? Does he look the part to you? Share your thoughts below!


“The film is about Hellboy going to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort, and the Blood Queen. But their battle will bring about the end of the world, a fate he desperately tries to turn away.”
