New Hellboy will have a panel at New York Comic-Con next month

In case you forgot, the new HELLBOY movie with David Harbour is set to come out four months from today on January 11, 2019. That’s not long at all, and all we’ve seen of the movie is the image of Harbour as the big red demon and looking all sorts of ripped. We’re due for some sort of big reveal, or better yet, a big trailer, but at the very least we now know that the movie will be getting its own panel at New York Comic-Con next month with the cast in tow.

The event’s Twitter page posted yesterday that the cast including Harbour, Sasha Lane (playing Alice Monaghan), Daniel Dae Kim (playing Major Ben Daimio) and Ian McShane (playing Professor Trevor Bruttenholm) will be in attendance alongside the creator of the comic, Mike Mignola, on Saturday, October 6. They will, of course, talk about proper scaffolding procedures, why you should adopt dogs and not buy them from pet shops, and their favorite summer reads. Maybe they’ll talk about HELLBOY if there’s time.


Things have been quiet on the HELLBOY front since earlier this summer when Mignola said the approach to this movie was to “play it much less like a superhero film, to downplay the superhero elements even more than [Guillermo] del Toro did. This one is much more folklore/mythology/horror, and not “big team rushing into to do battle with whatever kind of stuff.” Neil Marshall (GAME OF THRONES) is directing the movie with a script by Mignola and Andrew Cosby, with the rest of cast fleshed out by Penelope Mitchell, Sophie Okonedo and Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen. 

Should the movie keep that January release date that means we can expect a volley of press materials to show up soon, including posters, images, footage, etc. The panel at NYCC will be a good place to unveil all that, still leaving enough time for new goodies to come out across that next three months. Like you all, I'm most anxious for that footage, all because this movie sounds grittier and darker than the del Toro movies, and adding in that folklore will should make for an epic-looking movie. 

HELLBOY arrives January 11, 2019.
