"According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor is now in negotiations with Lionsgate and Millennium to star in the "Hellboy" reboot".

In the Hellboy comics, Daimio is depicted as half-Japanese. For anyone wondering, Daimio is a part of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense and, thanks to a run-in with some otherworldly circumstances, he can turn into a jaguar when he's angry. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kim is already in negotiations to play the role of Ben Daimio, which Ed Skrein recently vacated. "[Therefore] I have made a decision to step down so the role can be cast appropriately".

Skrein dropped out of the reboot following public outcry against whitewashing in Hollywood, saying it was important to "honour ethnic minority stories and voices in arts".

Kim is Korean-American. And the actor is no stranger to standing up for his beliefs.
