Earlier on Tuesday, we were officially given our very first look at David Harbour—who you may know as Jim Hopper from Stranger Things—in the upcoming 2018 reboot of Hellboy as the titular character.

The exciting glimpse of what’s to come was provided to us by the film’s official twitter account (their very first tweet!), and was also posted by Mike Mignola—the very creator of Hellboy and his tales—on his twitter feed.

Many might be missing Ron Perlman’s iconic take of the character, but personally I think this rendition is looking pretty spot on so far.  David Harbour seems to fit fight in, and boy is he looking hellish.

David Harbour posted an additional black and white image on his twitter on him in character, but it was later deleted.  Thanks to Variety, we still have it up to show you guys.

Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is expected release at some point in 2018.  It stars David Harbour as Hellboy, Milla Jovovich as Nimue The Blood Queen, Ian McShane as Professor Broom, and Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio.

Are you guys excited to see Hellboy on screen again, for the first time in a decade?
