Hellboy first images have been released
Although the R-Rated Hellboy reboot is still more than a year away from being released, we got our glimpse at the muscled bad boy outta hell. Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy tweeted a picture of David Harbour in full makeup and we’re blown away. Holly H-E-double-hockey sticks!

The new Hellboy as portrayed as David Harbour, who you may recognize beneath the prosthetics and makeup as the Police Chief Jim Hopper from Stranger Things, isn’t the biggest departure from Hellboy as portrayed by Ron Perlman—and we’re ok with that.
As we can see, the two Hellboys are similar, yes, but some striking differences that we’re loving. First of all, he looks far less cartoony and plastic with the prosthetics and more believable. We’re digging the texture and the grit which makes it that much sexier—oh, and we’re huge fans of the vascularity they gave him. Yum.
