David Harbour Teases Stranger Things Season 3 and Hellboy

-

David Harbour is talking about the upcoming third season of the Netflix series Stranger Things and the reboot of Hellboy. He spoke about the returning series and the upcoming film in a recent interview with Vanity Fair (via ComingSoon.net). On his character Hopper, he said, “In terms of Hopper, all the things that we’ve had from Season 1 and Season 2 come to a boiling point for him in the beginning of Season 3.”

He continued, “So, this is a year for Hopper of real domesticity. Eleven’s been validated, she has a birth certificate. She’s a part of the world in some way. It’s really how Hopper deals with domestic issues, like real day-to-day stuff, that takes him to this place of . . . he might be better at drama than he is at just sort of … (hanging out).”

Fans of the series have been asking on social media about the possibility of a romance between Hopper and Winona Ryder’s character Joyce Beyrs. Harbour said, “In Season 2 he gets to relive his fatherhood experiences and really understand how to care for a child. We’ve seen him kind of as a dad and as a cop, and we haven’t seen him as sort of a man, in terms of having a real equal woman to tangle with. I would like to see that.”

Harbour also spoke about playing the title character in the upcoming film Hellboy. He said, “It’s a classically complicated hero. He’s a creature that was meant to bring about the end of the world, and he just sort of wants to be a good guy. He’s got that complexity to him. He’s also a monster who lives among human beings, so he’s in a sense fighting for human beings against his fellow monsters, and yet the humans hate him because they fear him and they think he’s weird looking and everything.”

He elaborated on the character. “He has a heart that’s really good and with a lot of this crusted-over stuff. What I’m dealing with in Hellboy is a lot different, bigger in a certain way. It’s very Shakespearean. It’s demons and witches and stuff like that. But it has a similar core to a dude who’s trapped in horrible circumstances who’s just trying to be a good guy.”

Stranger Things will return to Netflix in the summer of 2019. Neil Marshall (The DescentGame of Thrones) is directing Hellboy, which will hit theaters on January 11, 2019.
