From the first trailer, Neil Marshall’s new take on ‘Hellboy‘ has had some fans of Ron Perlman’s work questioning how the new film will pan out, but anyone who loves the comics was likely thrilled at all of the key moments which were eluded to. Before we get to that, we did get a slew of great shots of David Harbour tackling the iconic character and readers should easily recognize this as a slightly more comic-accurate version than Perlman’s even if we don’t have the wonderful gravely voice that he had given us.
Let’s take a look at the shots which came from the trailer that Legendary gave us yesterday!
First up, here’s a good look at who is likely to be the main villain of the film unless she is going to summon a power greater than herself for Hellboy to take down:
Here she is looking to summon the end of the Earth and possibly what Hellboy will need to end up fighting if he doesn’t stop her in time!
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment we also got what is likely a flashback to Hellboy being brought to Earth as a bunch of Nazi’s who aappear to be working with Rasputin are gathering around something. I’m guessing this will be a Baby Hellboy once the lightshow dies down.
One potentially unrelated to the main story fight scene does seem to be hinted at in this shot:
It should be noted that at least one shot from the ‘Hellboy’ film has him looking to be part of the prophecy that has him bringing about the end of the world:
We don’t know if that will end up happening or not but this still seems to indicate that either it will begin or that we’ll get an extended vision of what could happen if the prophecy comes to pass:
So, I’m curious as to what you think about the first ‘Hellboy’ trailer. Do you think that this will be up to par with the Guillermo del Toro films? Let us know if you’re a fan of the comics when answering and how you think it stacks up to what Mike Mignola had originally put in print? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
