The new Hellboy reboot is stirring up controversy even before it starts filming.

Earlier this week, British actor Ed Skrein joined the cast as Ben Daimio in Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.
The character is Japanese-American in Mike Mignola's comic version and his heritage is a central point to the character's backstory.
Daimio's grandmother was a Japanese Imperial assassin in World War II, so the casting of a Japanese actor seems imperative.
Many objected to the role not going to an Asian-American actor and called it another example of Hollywood 'whitewashing' Asian characters.
I guess they want this to fail,' said actress Cindy Chu on Twitter.
Others chimed in with a mixture of outrage and confusion.
