A new Hellboy movie came out more than a decade later, but the ending of Hellboy (2019) left many fans with many questions. Rather than a sequel to the 2008 movie Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the 2019 Hellboy movie is an R-rated reboot. The release of a new Hellboy movie would be something fans have been waiting for a long time. Neil Marshall directed this 2019 film instead of Guillermo del Toro, who directed the original two films. Initially, del Toro was supposed to make the third installment, but he left the project when he didn’t get the director-writer role like the previous two films. Thus, the studio took the step of making a reboot rather than a sequel. The film features Stranger Things star David Harbor as the Hellboy instead of Ron Perlman.
A reboot of the Hellboy franchise, this film revolves around a half-human, half-demon man who works for BRPD to fight against supernatural and dark forces. However, this new episode could not match the level of its predecessors. The public and critics gave negative reviews for the directing and writing. But the audience praised the performance of the actors. ‘Hellboy’ presents many sequences throughout the film, which are full of gore sequences. However, the latest Hellboy plot still intrigued many fans, but the ending of Hellboy (2019) left the fans most confused. Therefore, we will explain Hellboy (2019) in this article. Furthermore, beware of reading this article as it will contain a lot of spoilers. To avoid spoilers, you can watch the movie on Amazon Prime Video.
What happens in the Hellboy reboot?
The film opens with Blood Queen Vivienne Nimue, who terrorized England by unleashing a life-threatening plague. However, King Arthur put an end to the Blood Queen. He separated Nimue into pieces and seals every part from the others. The film then shifts to the present, where Hellboy, a half-human and half-demon, works for BPRD, which fights against supernatural beings and evil forces. BRPD leader Trevor Bruttenholm, who adopted Hellboy instead of killing him, orders Hellboy to take out three giants roaming Britain. Meanwhile, a witch named Baba Yaga advises a pig-like fairy Gruagach to revive Nimue to take revenge on Hellboy.
