What to Expect from the New Hellboy Movie 2019
New Hellboy Movie 2019 – Created by Mike Mignola in 1993, superhero Hellboy is one of the best known comic book characters not attached to either the DC Comics or Marvel Comics brands. Although he’s a half-demon who is large and red, and has horns, Hellboy is a benevolent character with a quick humor and his gruff but charming personality has endeared him to fans who have enjoyed watching him taken on dark forces as a member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BRPD).
In addition to comic books, Hellboy has also spawned video game spin-offs as well as two blockbuster movies which released in 2004 and 2008. Another Hellboy reboot movie is also scheduled to release in 2019 and here’s what you can expect from the upcoming feature flick.
How Will the Hellboy Movie 2019 Reboot Appeal to New Fans?
While the new Hellboy movie 2019 was initially intended to complete the trilogy laid out by Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman (who directed and played the titular star in the other two films respectively), this film is instead being pitched as a full reboot.
This means that there will be a brand new cast, with Stranger Things actor David Harbour now playing the half-demon protagonist. Lost and Hawaii Five-0 actor Daniel Dae Kim also stars as BPRD agent Ben Daimio, and Resident Evil’s Milla Jovovich plays the movie’s main villain, the Blood Queen. David Harbour below gets lead role for Hellboy Movie 2019.
The decision to move away from the original cast of the first two movies may be controversial. Ron Perlman received a lot of praise for his turn as Hellboy and some may be disappointed that he isn’t involved in the reboot. However, it may be a smart decision given that many new Hellboy fans will have heard about the franchise through things like Science of Evil game from Konami or the Hellboy online slot games offered by William Hill, rather than the original movies or the comic book series. Given that it has been over a decade since the last Hellboy movie was released, it stands to reason that there will be plenty of newfound fans.
What Does the Hellboy Reboot Mean for the Future of the Franchise?
That the new Hellboy movie is a reboot – that could potentially win over a brand new audience – rather than just an end to the trilogy could be a good sign regarding the future of the franchise. It seems to suggest that distributor Lionsgate Films and production companies Dark Horse Comics and Millennium Films are interested in investing a significant amount of resources in portraying Hellboy’s comic book setting.
In 2016, Mike Mignola made the surprise decision to end the Hellboy comics, saying that he was going to work on watercolors instead. But given that Mignola is confirmed to be working on the reboot and the past two Hellboy movies made more than $250 million between them, could this inspire the comic book creator to bring Hellboy back?
For now, it’s unclear whether Mignola plans to make more Hellboy comics. But the new Hellboy movie 2019 , which releases on January 11, 2019, will have to suffice for now.
