We’ve been told that Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot will be R-rated, full of practical effects, and also more dark and more gruesome than Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy movies, but we haven’t actually seen anything from it yet to back up those claims.

He certainly looks juicier than Ron Perlman’s Hellboy, but other than that he seems pretty close to both that version and Mignola’s original in the comics.
