Thomas Hayden Church is Lobster Jones in Hellboy reboot

November 18th, 2018 by Marc Comments

One of the only saving graces of Sam Raimi’s car wreck Spider-man 3 was Sandman as played by Thomas Hayden Church and now he’s heading back to the big screen as a comic character.

The actor who has been one of our most liked since his performance in Sideways, talked earlier this year about heading back into comic book territory but was standoffish about it:

“I’m not supposed to talk about it, but I actually have returned, but not in the Marvel world, it’s another world, but it is in that genre of superheroes and supervillains. I’m not supposed to talk about it, it’s a movie I shot last year. They’re trying to keep it – and good luck to ‘em – with, y’know, today man, I’m surprised it hasn’t already kinda been revealed.”

At the time no-one had any idea but now it seems he’s playing Lobster Johnson in the upcomng Hellboy reboot starring Stranger Things and Suicide Squad’s David Harbour as the titular character.

Johnson is a 1930 vigilante in New York who brandishes any villains he apprehends, although we’ve no idea how big the role will be.

Church meets Hellboy? Sounds like a winning combination to us.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
