HELLBOY: David Harbour Says There Were Major Problems With The Reboot, "We Did Our Best"

Following the end of Hellboy's theatrical run, star David Harbour has come out to say a few words regarding the reception of the reboot, citing "major problems" during the film's development . . .

David Harbour of Stranger Things and Black Widow has gone on the record to admit that while not everyone was happy with Hellboy's finished product, he was proud of what he put into it. In an interview with Digital Spy, the actor seemed to be very sympathetic towards the critical disappointment:

We did our best, but there's so many voices that go into these things and they're not always going to work out. I did what I could do and I feel proud of what I did, but ultimately I'm not in control of a lot of those things.


While Harbour was considered the best part of the film by those who saw it, he does cite major problems in the adaptations attempts to seperate itself from the usual comic book fare:
 

The problem that I have with comic book movies nowadays is that I think, and it's a result of the power of Marvel stuff, it's like chocolate, it's a flavour. So everybody goes chocolate is delicious and these guys make the best chocolate. So as you judge the movies, it's like, 'Well it's not as chocolatey as this, this does not taste like chocolate at all.' So in that way when Hellboy is viewed on the chocolate spectrum, it does very poorly. That being said, it also has major problems
