A new Hellboy clip reveals one of the most popular characters in the comics: Lobster Johnson.
JoBlo released the clip on YouTube. It definitely plays up the movie's R-rating and features a ton of bloody and gory scenes from the upcoming film, including a headless Blood Queen being reborn, a body being split in half and plenty of battles with hellish creatures. Johnson also appears in the footage wearing his signature black leather suit and goggles. The character burns a claw mark into Rasputin's head, a signature of his character.
Also known as The Lobster, Lobster Johnson made his first appearance in Hellboy: Box of Evil #1, which released in August 1999. He is an expert combatant and wields an array of weapons, including two pistols, swords, spears and, on one occasion, a submachine gun. The character even got his own mini-series in the late 2000s.
Lobster Johnson is played by Thomas Haden Church, who previously starred in Spider-Man 3 as Sandman.
Arriving on April 12, director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy stars David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Milla Jovovich as Nimue, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida and Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio.
