Hellboy’s David Harbour Drops F-Bomb Sharing What He Learned From Working On The 2019 Reboot

Squeezed in between his minor appearance as Dexter Tolliver in Suicide Squad and playing Red Guardian in Black Widow, Stranger Things’ David Harbour scored his first leading role in a comic book movie via 2019’s Hellboy. Unfortunately, unlike the Ron Perlman-led Hellboy movies, the reboot was both a critical and commercial disaster, resulting in plans for a sequel introducing Abe Sapien being scrapped. Three years after his sole outing as the popular Dark Horse Comics character, Harbour revealed the big thing he learned from working on Hellboy, and dropped an f-bomb in the process.

David Harbour has been making the press rounds lately to promote his new movie Violent Night, which is getting a lot of comparisons to Die Hard online. When Yahoo Entertainment’s Kevin Polowy brought up Hellboy in his interview with Harbour, specifically what lessons he learned from working on the reboot, the actor answered:

Let’s see. I learned not to fuck with an established IP, that’s for sure. A beloved and established IP. I guess that’s the biggest lesson learned. Because I feel like whatever failures or successes that movie was, of which there are many, the movie itself had such a thing going into it that it was almost impossible. Whereas something like Stranger Things or even this Violent Night, it’s an original thing, it’s an original idea, so people can judge for whatever it is when it comes out, when they see it, but they don’t have going into it so much stuff. And I feel like that to me is what’s so difficult about existing IP.
