We already know that Milla Jovovich is going to play the villain Nimue in the reboot of ‘Hellboy‘ but we haven’t seen much of who exactly her character The Blood Queen is quite yet. She has an obvious interest in Hellboy from the most recent trailer likely due to the prophecy that he is meant to bring about the end of the world and has some gnarly powers where she can turn others to dust like a mini-walking Thanos snapping his fingers for whoever is in range. Other than that? The teasers haven’t given us much.
A new interview with Milla Jovovich has the actress explain a little more about the Blood Queen, her powers and the motivation behind that “steamy kiss on Hellboy’!
As to her character, Milla says:
“The Blood Queen is literally the queen of the underworld in a sense. She is the mother of all of these creatures and monsters, she’s been around for millennia.”
That itself is a bit more detail than we’ve seen so far which is fitting. As to Nimue’s powers and what she wants from ‘Hellboy,’ that has already been hinted in the second trailer but Jovovich clarifies it just a little more:
“She’s able to throw plague and sickness on people…The Blood Queen fixates on Hellboy as a potential king for balance. The two of them could rule the world.”
It isn’t entirely clear if this Underworld which is mentioned is related to the Hell which exists in Mike Mignola‘s comics or if that might be another realm which she will eventually hope to conquer.

Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action-packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
‘Hellboy’ will “Give Evil Hell” in your local theaters on April 12th, 2019!
