David Harbour puts himself in the iconic antihero shoes within the reboot of 'Hellboy' in 2019. In this occasion, the Agency for the Research and Paranormal Defense has a new mission for Hellboy: to fight against Nimue, an ancient female spirit also known as 'The Blood Queen'. The story the Nimue is about dark spells and black magic: she was the apprentice of Merlín himself during the king Arthur period. As the time passed, she became one of the most powerful witches at that time, when she got mentally ill and locked the famous magician eternally. Although everybody thought they had beaten her centuries ago, the villain has now raised from hell with the purpose of chasing and destroy the humanity.
Mike Mignola had stated that Harbour had been researching the character, stating, "He's texting me Hellboy questions about his history, about what the character would think about this or about that".
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. 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.
This will be a complete reboot and not a continuation of the previous movies starring Ron Perlman and directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
