David Harbour issues Hellboy Wedding Twitter challenge to ComingSoon editor!
At Saturday’s Hellboy panel at New York Comic-Con, lead actor David Harbour had a huge surprise for ComingSoon.net. Back in September our managing editor (and massive Hellboy fan) Spencer Perry and his fiancé Carly Lane of SYFY Wire asked Harbour on Twitter if he could officiate their wedding in March. Harbour gave a shout-out to Carly during the panel and eventually went onto Twitter and announced that he will perform the Hellboy Wedding ceremony in FULL HELLBOY MAKE-UP if his tweet gets 166K retweets! Check out Harbour’s tweet below and HELP RETWEET IT and spread the word so we can make these dream nuptials happen for Spencer!
Of this tweet.
Big Red officiates. Full Gear. In his saintly best.
Think of how difficult it will be for me to get this character ordained by a Christian church
(P.S. – I’ll knock off 500k if you can get @artofmmignola to read a poem at the service) https://t.co/cnzHrcnsOo

“Is Carly here from Twitter?” Harbour asked the crowd of thousands at NYCC on Saturday. “I dunno if you guys know, I do these retweet Twitter challenges. There’s one that I’m really interested in. Next March there’s a couple who are big Hellboy fans who really wanna get married by Hellboy, and I’m gonna announce something about the insane number of retweets to get this done, but I will say that to me the most exciting thing about that challenge would be to actually get ordained by a Christian church.”
Following Harbour’s tweet, Spencer Perry reached out to try to unlock his Mike Mignola loophole, which could shrink the number of needed RT’s needed from 666K to a mere 166K…
absolutely but @DavidKHarbour needs to write the poem!

Harbour also discussed the Hellboy wedding with Kevin Smith on iMDB…
Based on the acclaimed graphic novels by Mike Mignola, the new Hellboy story centers around Hellboy (David Harbour), who is caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human and battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.

Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct from a script by Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden and the character’s creator, Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
Hellboy is set to open on April 12, 2019.
