Not bad.

Wonder if Perlman will tweet a thought or is he still loyal to Del Toro.

That too, but also the colder stare and angry expression, the horns look more gnarly, the hand is more rugged and artificial, the pronounced scars, etc

Damn. I don't even recognize Harbour at all. I'm still in what "*shrug* New Hellboy? Cool I guess?" phase but would at the same time like this to be very good because I do think Harbour could go a good job as Hellboy.

I know barely anything about the character, but it looks like Perlman's version with the 'hell' slider increased slightly. Seems more demonic.

You'd have to really fuck up to make a bad Hellboy design when Del Toro already got it right a decade ago.

Sure, but that's also a decision that the filmmakers/studio made in depicting the first look of this take on the character this way.

Did they use some form synthetic skin/padding/contour for Perlman version?

And as for Harbour the transformation is amazing! Here's a topless shot of him from Stranger Things S1:

Main advantage of Perlman was that he didn't require any makeup.

For those saying it looks like Perlman, its more like Perlman looks a whole fucking lot like comicbook Hellboy naturally.

So is Harbour that jacked in real life? Otherwise, that's got to be a brutal make-up process for him to endure each day.

You can tell from that picture alone that he can put on some size. His pecs and arms already are pretty big. I am stoked.

They've really improved the prosthetics from the Perlman days. The chest and abs in particular don't look nearly as fake and rubbery as Perlman's did.

No doubt he's put in work to shape up for the role, but I'm fairly confident there's a lot of prosthetics going on with his body.

Same. I hope it's just a suit and not something that has to be applied to certain areas of his body each day for his sake.

That's how he wears it in the comics, and how Perlman had it in the previous films. Just a bit unusual to see it down.
