Stranger Thing's David Harbour transforms into Hellboy

The first photo of David Harbour as Hellboy was released on Wednesday.

The Stranger Things' alum sat through hours of heavy makeup and prosthesis to bring the beloved comic book character to life for the reboot franchise.

And with a more muscular body and sharper features, Harbour's version is reminiscent of Ron Perlman's take from the original films, yet wholly distinct.

In the the original Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Perlman's titular character was stocky and had a more cartoonish look about him.

Harbour's reincarnation sports a more realistic figure like the comic books portrays.

His Hellboy has more defined eyes, hair, and muscles - which matches the descriptions of the character as a devil in an MMA fighter's body.

Harbour has been working with celebrity trainer Don Saladino to get into such great physical shape.
