David Harbour of Stranger Things fame has been revealed as Hellboy.
The veteran actor is set to star in the relaunch of the Dark Horse franchise. Ian McShane (Death Race, American Gods) will play Professor Broom, Hellboy’s adoptive father and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-O) will play Major Ben Daimio.
This is the first image released of Harbour in the role of the iconic indie character.
Neil Marshall is set to direct the new feature.
Daniel Dae Kim was cast as Daimio after some controversy came about when Ed Skrein was originally set to be cast but Skrein isn’t Asian and left the role after the controversy arose.
The Hellboy role was previously played by Ron Perlman in two films and directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
There was going to be a third film featuring Perlman but it never got any where.by
