In the world of Hellboy, the immortal sorceress, Nimue, was once the Lady of the Lake. She was the one who gave Excalibur to King Arthur, which helped him reign in Camelot. But the centuries have not been kind to Nimue, despite her ageless features. She’s the mother of monsters, and her children have been devastated by humanity. Now, Nimue wants her revenge. But in a new preview scene from Hellboy, she sees even more possibilities.
Within the clip, Nimue (Milla Jovovich) easily overpower’s David Harbour’s Hellboy. However, she’s not interested in destroying the world’s greatest paranormal investigator. Instead, she offers Hellboy the chance to embrace his true nature as the beast of the apocalypse. She even gives him the chance to rule the ashes of the world by her side as a king. Naturally, Hellboy isn’t simply going to give her what she wants. But even Hellboy feels alone in a world that’s clearly not built for him.
