Hellboy Movie Faces Controversy For Filming Inside Church.

Hellboy Movie Faces Controversy For Filming Inside Church.

Hellboy movie reboot is facing another controversy after the film crew was allowed to film inside the 900-year-old Wells Cathedral in Somerset, England.

Worshippers have allegedly criticised the church officials decision to allow the movie to filmed inside the Cathedral. However, officials argued that the film is about “the eternal battle of good over evil.”





“We realise that the idea of this filming may cause concern with some people who aren’t familiar with the stories and character,” Wells Cathedral said in a statement. “Hellboy originated, in fact, as a superhero in a series of novels created by Mike Mignola. His true nature is one of a hero and he becomes a defender against the forces of darkness. The eternal battle of good over evil which this story examines helps us to encourage an intelligent faith which does not hide from controversy and one that looks for the good inside people no matter their outward appearance.”

Hellboy will star Stranger Things' David Harbour as Hellboy and American Gods' Ian McShane as his adoptive father. The film will be released in theaters in 2018.
