Sept. 14 (UPI) — Stranger Things star David Harbour posted on Twitter a photo of him dressed in costume for his next project, a re-boot of the Hellboyfilm franchise.
“Please allow [me] to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste… #hellboy,” Harbour captioned a black and white photo of himself standing in front of a staircase.
The actor is shirtless and wearing a long overcoat. He has the anti-hero’s signature claw on his hand and sawed-off head horns, as well.

Ron Perlman and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro announced last February they would not return for a third movie in their live-action Hellboy franchise.
Based on graphic novels by writer-artist Mike Mignola and featuring Perlman as the titular demon, Hellboy was released in 2004 and its sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army hit theaters in 2008. The movies co-starred Doug Jones, Selma Blair and the late John Hurt. The cast members also reprised their roles vocally in two direct-to-video, animated movies.
Harbour is taking over the lead role in the new, live-action installment, under the direction of Neil Marshall.
