Hellboy 2019 Reboot was kind of a disaster both financially and critically but it doesn’t mean it will always remain that. There are so many movies who might have failed at the box office during their release and have later gotten a cult following.

Watch #HellBoy (2019) and it really wasn’t as bad as everyone made it out to be. I think if they focused on better graphics, maybe different director, the second HellBoy would be great. I give it a Solid B. pic.twitter.com/h2gXPpePsb

The same will be the case with Hellboy 2019 as it is releasing on HBO’s streaming service and HBO TV channel. Here are the reasons why the 2019 Hellboy starring Hellboy will be a major hit over the streaming platforms.
Hellboy 2019 was a Box Office Bomb
Hellboy Reboot was released just two weeks after the highest-grossing movie, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and was completely overshadowed by it. There is no way any movie would have survived at the time as Avengers: Endgame was the conclusion of 21 MCU movies and it was a grand cinematic event.
Fans of the original Hellboy series disliked it due to the simple fact that Guillermo Del Toro was replaced by Neil Marshall as the director and David Harbour took the place of Ron Perlman in the titular role. Also, Hellboy 2019 suffered from poor editing, the pressure to release early and R-Rating certificate.
Reasons why Hellboy 2019 will be Hit over Streaming Platforms
R-Rated Movies in Streaming Platforms: Hellboy 2019 was strictly for a mature audience and despite that, some of the scenes were cut in several countries by their censor board. While there is no such issue on streaming platforms and HBO can easily show the gore in the new Hellboy Reboot.
David Harbour is Famous Now: While only a few people were aware of the Hellboy 2019 lead star, David Harbour has become a household name after Stranger Things Season 3 and the latest Black Widow trailer are out.
A darker take on the Fantasy: Hellboy 2019 reboot is a much darker take on the franchise and it even covers the King Arthur storyline, which is something fans of the comic book series can easily recognize.
Hellboy 2019 Director’s Cut: While the theatrical version of the movie was poorly edited and had weird pacing, there are plans to release the director’s cut for Hellboy 2019 and it might make it a better story.
