The new Hellboy uses a script that’s described as a “true collaboration” between screenwriter Andrew Cosby and Hellboy comic creator Mike Mignola. There are scenes and dialogue that come straight from the source material, but there are also elements that deviate from the comics, like Daniel Dae Kim‘s role in the film. In the comics, Kim’s character Daimio and Hellboy never even share a page but in the film, Hellboy (David Harbour) reluctantly joins forces with the BPRD team commander in an effort to put a stop to Milla Jovovich‘s Nimue, The Blood Queen.
Hellboy is due out in theaters on April 12th so I recently got to sit down with Kim and opted to play a round of Collider’s “Would You Rather.” Find out if Kim would rather do performance capture or wear a ton of prosthetics, if he’d rather eat or run in a scene, if he’d rather see another Hawaii Five-0 remake or a remake of Lost, and much more! You can catch it all in the video interview at the top of this article and, in case you missed it, click here for my chat with Harbour and here to watch Jovovich play some “Would You Rather,” too.
Here is the official synopsis for Hellboy:
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
