Fans have been on the fence on what to think of the reboot of the half-demon ‘Hellboy‘ as he charged towards the big screen, but this new shot of him charging into action looks like a ton of fun. With the Right Hand of Doom at the ready and one Hell of a gun in his other hand, it is clear that he isn’t just ready for action but is embracing it. I love how the rest of the team looks like they’re just waiting for him to arrive and take care of business.
According to Harbour on the role:
“I love that he is sort of destined to bring about the apocalypse, and yet he himself just wants to be, like, a good guy. Hellboy is fundamentally a sweet-hearted guy but also a big old killer, just whacking people. We explore the horror of what it must be like to be from hell and to struggle to find your place among human beings.”
We’ve been hearing quite a bit that this will be a more seasoned take on Hellboy than what we got with Ron Perlman. In this case, Harbour’s character will have been in the field for years at this point. This new statement by the actor also lines up with a previous one where he explains:
“It’s not an origin story, but it’s his coming to terms with where he came from. He’s been Hellboy for a long time, but there’s a new turn of events at the start of the film, where people start to bring up the fact that he might bring about the end of the world, and it’s really the first time he’s heard anything like that. The question that comes up in the movie is where does he really belong?”
I love this more advanced take on the character so we don’t have to sit through his origin once again and can find a way directly into the action but in a way that still complicates Hellboy’s life.
