Hellboy Takes Over New York Comic-Con

It's New York Comic-Con (NYCC) time, and one of the hottest (literally) panels this year is Hellboy.

A brand new poster was revealed, featuring David Harbour and all his Big Red glory:

We're hoping for a trailer! Keep checking back, we'll be updating throughout.

On hand for the panel are Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, and cast members Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane, and Harbour.

Mignola spoke with Dark Horse earlier during NYCC about Hellboy:

Apparently Mignola's wife thought Harbour would be a good Hellboy while the pair were watching through Netflix's Stranger Things, which Harbour has been twice nominated for an Emmy for.

Daniel Dae Kim commented: "Seeing an Asian American in comics is great."

Unfortunately Milla Jovovich wasn't able to attend the panel, but her character of the Blood Queen was spoken about with Mignola saying, "She is very bad, but very good from her perspective, which is what I like in a villain."

"She's like my favorite!" Harbour said. "Sorry. She's amazing. I've known her from these films… It almost sounds weird, but I kind of grew up with Milla. The Fifth Element! She's done so many movies, I was kind of intimated… She wound up just being lovely and really excited about the project, which you don't always get or expect from big stars coming into a project like this. She was really interested in the whole movie, and really put her all into it. She's a beautiful actress and human being."

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PRACTICAL EFFECTS, HARBOUR? "It is a monster movie, right out of Frankenstein, updated for 2018."

BOOOOO, the footage shown during the NYCC panel will NOT be released.

Hellboy is set to open on April 12th, 2019.
