How does this still look like ron perlman?
I'm glad they didn't do something crazy to try and go another direction with it. This is what Hellboy should look like IMO.
Looks much more similar to Perlman's Hellboy than I would have thought.
That said, I actually like the longer hair.
Looks like a "de-aged via CGI" version of Ron Perlman.
I'm stoked to see what Harbour can bring to the role. It's only one picture, but he remains close enough to what I think Hellboy should look like. Similarities aside, it's still very exciting.
TIL - In mid 2012, Ron Perlman once again endured the 4-hour makeup routine required to transform him into Hellboy - not for a sequel or other acting job but to fulfill the Make-A-Wish request of a six-year-old boy named Zachary who has leukemia. Creature effects house Spectral Motion, who had worked on the two previous Hellboy films, applied Perlman's Hellboy makeup (and later, also made up Zachary as Hellboy as well), so that Zachary could spend the day hanging out with his favorite superhero. Guillermo del Toro was so touched by this event that it inspired him to start production on Hellboy 3. However, the project was announced to be cancelled and this reboot's development started soon after.
Just a testament to how much Del Toro got the look right. I wish this was a continuation of the trilogy/saga/whatever instead of a reboot. High hopes regardless
