Thomas Haden Church reportedly playing Lobster Johnson in Hellboy

Having portrayed the character of Flint Marko / Sandman in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, actor Thomas Haden Church revealed earlier this year that he’d shot a secret role in a comic book movie, and if a report from Discussing Film is accurate, it seems that secret has now been revealed.

According to the site, the film in question is the upcoming Hellboy reboot from Lionsgate, with Church reportedly playing the classic fan favourite Hellboy character Lobster Johnson.

Created by Mike Mignola, Lobster Johnson was a vigilante from the 1930s who operated in secret, and had a reputation for brutality and violence, often killing mobsters and burning his trademark lobster claw symbol into their foreheads. He was killed during a mission against the Nazis in 1939, but returns even more powerful as a ghost, working with Hellboy and the Bprd on a number of missions.

Thomas Haden Church Reportedly Plays Lobster Johnson in The Hellboy Reboot

Spider-Man 3 and Sideways star Thomas Haden Church was reportedly cast is director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot. According to Discussing Film, Church will take on the pulp era vigilante Lobster Johnson.

Apparently Haden Church previously teased the role earlier this year during an interview with JoBlo. Church was asked if he would ever return to the superhero movie genre after playing Sandman in Spider-Man 3 and this was his response:

“I’m not supposed to talk about it, but I actually have returned, but not in the Marvel world, it’s another world, but it is in that genre of superheroes and supervillains. I’m not supposed to talk about it, it’s a movie I shot last year. They’re trying to keep it-and good luck to ‘em-with, y’know, today man, I’m surprised it hasn’t already kinda been revealed.”

Hellboy Gets Thomas Haden Church as Lobster Johnson?

Hellboy Gets Thomas Haden Church as Lobster Johnson?
Thomas Haden Church is reportedly portraying Lobster Johnson, aka the Lobster in the Hellboy reboot. Mike Mignola created the character in 1993 for the comics and he was first seen on the small screen in the second animated Hellboy film, Blood and Iron. Hellboy fans were hoping that the footage that was shown at Nycc would hit the internet straight afterwards, but sadly, that has not been the case. Reactions to the footage were overwhelmingly positive, hyping fans that weren't able to make it out to this year's Nycc. With that being said, the first trailer should be dropping soon.

Thomas Haden Church recently spoke about comic book movies. In an interview from earlier this year, the actor was asked about making a return to the superhero genre after appearing as Sandman in Spider-Man 3. Church revealed that he actually had just filmed for a new secret superhero movie. He explains.

‘Sadie’ Review: Megan Griffiths’ Trailer Park Drama Falls Flat, Even With a Breakout Performance From Its Young Star — SXSW

‘Sadie’ Review: Megan Griffiths’ Trailer Park Drama Falls Flat, Even With a Breakout Performance From Its Young Star — SXSW
No one is happy in the hazy, dank world of Megan Griffiths’ trailer-park drama, “Sadie.” But no one is as compelling in their discontent as the eponymous lead, an outcast 13-year-old played by breakout star Sophia Mitri Schloss. Unhappy with her lot in life, she’s ignored at nearly every turn, only finding solace in her doting mother Rae (Melanie Lynskey) and her long-time best pal Francis (Keith L. Williams).

However, Sadie’s fragile existence is made worse by the protracted absence of her father. A daddy’s girl through and through, Sadie is convinced that her soldier dad is the only one who really understands her — not only with their shared interest in gory horror movies, military strategy, and sensible flak jackets, but also in emotions and worldview. That her father has been out of the country and her life, for years (save for his bi-monthly letters) stings Sadie,

Divorce season two review – ‘Best watched through fingers and a Valium haze’

Sharon Horgan’s acutely observed tale of a disintegrating marriage has just enough light relief to keep it bearable. Plus, Marlon Brando’s Polynesian paradise revisited

In all honesty, I didn’t know if I could go through another Divorce. The first series of the tale of a disintegrating marriage, written by the nonpareil of domestic deconstruction, Sharon Horgan, and starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church as warring couple Frances and Robert Defresne, was best watched through fingers and a Valium haze. The lightest relief from its painful disentanglement of one neurotic woman and one callous/caring/infuriating man was usually provided by a secondary character accidentally shooting at her own husband, but failing to make it a fatal shot.

The finale featured Robert calling the cops on his wife after she took his verbal agreement about custody as binding and the kids to live with her. Last
