Harbour was recently approached on Twitter by Spencer Perry who had met him on the set of the movie last year. Perry publically called out Harbour to ask if he would officiate a wedding for him and his soon to be wife next March (the month before the film’s release) in full Hellboy gear if they can hit a retweet goal of Harbour’s choosing.
David, you may remember we met last year on the set of Hellboy (I was the one with the BPRD tattoo that was literally days old). I’m getting married in March to @carlylane, how many RTs for you to officiate as Hellboy.

What’s awesome is that Harbour actually responded in the coolest way possible, for the character at least, and agreed if his demand for 666k RTs is met.
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

So now technically, it looks like the number is going to be 166k now that Mike Mignola has agreed to the terms. So hopefully Hellboy can tap into his artistic and poetic side to deliver the right words to Mignola and things are good to go! With no timetable on this all, chances are they’ll hit their goal before March, and if anything else it’ll make for great promotion for the upcoming film.
absolutely but @DavidKHarbour needs to write the poem!
