Hellboy creator Mike Mignola just posted a first look at the new Hellboy movie’s costume on his Twitter page, and he looks like he just went to Hell and back, and that’s a good thing.

While Hellboy alum Ron Perlman isn’t returning as the titular Anung Un Rama, or just Hellboy to us mere mortals, his replacement, David Harbour, is no slouch. The man has some serious acting chops, as he’s been in Stranger ThingsSuicide SquadBrokeback Mountain, and numerous other movies and television shows. Today, we finally got a good look at Harbour in his Hellboy makeup and…wow…just, wow…

Look at him. No, seriously, look at him. Coupled with the lighting, this Hellboy looks, dare I say it, better than when Perlman donned the Right Hand of Doom. Don’t get me wrong, the makeup from the original two movies was amazing, but putting the two costumes side by side, I can kinda see the seams in the original makeup: the skin and horns look a tad too shiny and plasticy by comparison. But, the costume doesn’t just improve on the original design; it also takes some artistic liberties, specifically in the hair and the Right Hand. This version of Hellboy has long, somewhat grimey hair, where as the versions from the comics and Guillermo del Toro movies both had short, slick hair. But, the Hand now looks far closer to the Hand from the comics. In del Toro’s movies, the Hand looked as if it were made out of numerous tiny rocks fused together into a movable, hand-like contraption, but now the Hand looks like a bad ass gauntlet that was chiseled out of one big demonic piece of rock. I’m really digging this version of Hellboy, and so are a lot of the commenters on the original post. Granted, the general consensus is fans would prefer to see Perlman wear this makeup, and while I’m also a bit of a Perlman fan myself, I’m now looking forward to this reboot even more so than when I first reported on it.

If this makeup is representative of the final product, Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen might be a promising start to a whole new cinematic universe, one that might eventually get a movie staring a guy named Lobster Johnson.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Helldivers 2 has seen a rapid rise in popularity, presenting both opportunities and challenges for Arrowhead Game Studio. Although one could argue that the studio has produced a modern masterpiece, Helldivers 2 is still prone to persistent connection issues. Players who have shown great patience with the ongoing server issues in the game are now starting to clash, focusing on personal gain instead of uniting for the success of Super Earth.

IGN reported that players are pleading with Arrowhead to include an AFK auto-kick feature on the Helldivers subreddit. This request comes after some players confessed to remaining logged in to continue playing and bypass the unpredictable server connection process. This issue requires an urgent resolution.

The leader of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, was informed about the problem and assured that the developers were investigating the situation. “I have already communicated this to the team,” Pilestedt confirmed. Regarding Helldivers updates, Xbox players are now petitioning Arrowhead to release the game on their platform after comments from Xbox boss Phil Spencer about the game’s exclusivity.

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi series has garnered significant acclaim from players, with Cal Kestis’ gripping journey of survival serving as a focal point. Actor Cameron Monaghan, renowned for his portrayal of Kestis in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Survivor, has expressed his openness to bringing the character to life in a live-action adaptation. However, Monaghan emphasizes that certain conditions must be met for him to consider reprising the role.

During a panel at FanExpo Vancouver 2024, Monaghan, known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, provided insight into his perspective. While many actors would eagerly seize any opportunity to join the Star Wars universe, Monaghan’s willingness to portray Kestis in live-action hinges on the narrative significance and continuation of the character’s story. Merely appearing as a superficial presence would not align with his vision; there must be substantial meaning and relevance for Kestis within the context of the story.

As anticipation builds for a potential third installment in the Star Wars Jedi series, Respawn Entertainment’s reported development of a first-person Mandalorian game raises intriguing possibilities. Could Kestis find himself embarking on new adventures within this immersive gaming experience?

Fans are speculating and curious about the possibility of a live-action Star Wars movie starring Dominic Monaghan. Would such a project capture your interest? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
