A year ago, the first image of what the new Hellboy would look like was released, but only before Comic-Con did they show themselves to the heroes of this new restart. This new film will be directed by starring Neal Marshall – David Harbor, the star of "Stranger Things".
The film will depict the battle of Hellboy against the ancient witch, who wants to take revenge on mankind and defeat him, will require more demonic power than usual. Even for EW magazine in March last year, its creator Minyola said that the film is very believable to a specific three-part story that he did with artist Duncan Fegredo.
Lionsgate released a poster and a teaser earlier in the week, and was finally officially released on the YouTube channel of the official trailer after it was leaked to the last NYCC.
In this new trailer, you can see that this new Hellboy retains a comic, cheerful and rich tone character, typical of the character.
The film will focus on Hellboy’s confrontation with Nim, the “Queen of Blood,” an ancestral spirit that seeks to end all of humanity. Nimue, as Milla Jovovich interpreted, was Merlin's mistress during the reign of King Arthur. From him, he learned the spells that led her to become one of the most powerful witches, but the madness eventually grabbed her and imprisoned the magician for all eternity. Centuries ago, he managed to destroy this villain, deeply buried, but returning from the dead with the intention to destroy humanity with his black magic.
The cast is complemented by Ian McShane, Sasha Lane and Daniel De Kim. The film will be released on April 12, 2019, it is curious that he will be 15 years old since the premiere of the first film adaptation of Guillermo del Toro.
