Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen was announced not even two weeks ago, yet we already have our first promotional art for the upcoming reboot. The film will star Stranger Thing's David Harbour as Mike Mignola's creation, and will be written by Mignola, Andrew Cosby (Eureka), and Christopher Golden (writer of TV movies and two Buffy the Vampire Slayer videogames). The R-rated film will be directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent), who is touching up the script with Aron Coleite (Heroes, Star Trek: Discovery).
IGN has revealed the first promo art for Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which is simply beautiful artwork by Mignola, accompanied by the new title and the release date of next year. The artwork is currently on displaty at the 2017 Cannes Film Festical.
Sure, it's not even concept art of Harbour as Hellboy, and could literally be a panel from one of Mignola's books, »

Guillermo Del Toro's two Hellboy films arrived at an interesting time in the superhero movie continuum. Hellboy debuted in 2004, based on Mike Mignola's long-running Dark Horse comics character; Two years after Raimi's Spider-Man, a year before Nolan's Batman Begins, and amidst a glut of... a whole buncha crap (Ang Lee's Hulk, Catwoman, Blade:Trinity, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen... Ugh, I'll stop there, it only gets worse).
Del Toro's films faithfully captured the spirit of the character's universe and Ron Perlman unquestionably nailed the role. And yet, neither movie quite breached the soul of Mignola's creation or fully exploited its potential. Fans of Mignola's work will tell you that there's a ton of unexplored material in the dozens of Hellboy graphic novels and spin-offs (Kriegsaffen, Herman Von Klempt, Lobster Johnson).
Yesterday's Hellboy reboot announcement was greeted with trepidation, »
