NYCC: New Hellboy banner offers first look at comic characters
Lionsgate has released an exclusive New York Comic Con banner for the new Hellboy film offering a first look at some of the characters from the upcoming reboot! Check it out in the gallery below!
Based on the acclaimed graphic novels by Mike Mignola, the story centers around Hellboy (Harbour), who is caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human and battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.
Harbour spoke about the character of Hellboy, “He has a heart that’s really good and with a lot of this crusted-over stuff. What I’m dealing with in Hellboy is a lot different, bigger in a certain way. It’s very Shakespearean. It’s demons and witches and stuff like that. But it has a similar core to a dude who’s trapped in horrible circumstances who’s just trying to be a good guy.”
David Harbour stars as the title character in the upcoming film and is joined by Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) who will play Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka Professor Broom), Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Resident Evil franchise) as villain Nimue aka the Blood Queen, Sasha Lane (American Honey) will play Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove) will play the elder witch Ganeida, and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, LOST) is playing Major Ben Daimio.
Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct from a script by Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden and the character’s creator, Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
