Rumor: who made the BPRD cut in new Hellboy reboot

Last week, I reported that the BPRD will still be a thing in the new HELLBOY reboot. Now Splash Report has an exclusive scoop on just exactly who will make the final cut. Here's what the report had to say:

You will see the B.P.R.D. HEADQUARTERS, which is on a snow-capped mountainside, you will see arcane artifacts: cryptid skeletons, freakish things encased in formaldehyde, period weapons. Fans will also get to see the symbol of a hand holding a sword, with the words: IN ABSENTIA LUCI, TENEBRAE VINCIUNT.

Who are the members of the B.P.R.D. this time around?

Abe Sapien

Alice Monaghan: She can hear dead people. She will also use the Spirit Wrack.

Major Ben Daimio: rugged military type with cold, calculating eyes, close-cropped hair and three jagged scars raked across his grizzled face. Has a cool transformation, which I can not spoil.

The report also mentioned rumored appearances of King Arthur and Merlin (though they were part of the original comic-book story, so that's not that surprising).

Anyway, this is still all a rumor for now until we get further confirmation. However, if this is the case and this is indeed legit, I can't say I'm complaining. While the Guillermo del Toro movies implied a lot of other characters, the main team itself usually only consisted of three or four people (Abe Sapien and Liz in the first one, then adding Johann Kraus in the second). So that's fitting. Also glad to see Abe should be coming back!

So what do you Schmoes think of the rumored roster? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile, HELLBOY will rise into theaters next year.

Extra Tidbit: I had a soft spot for Johann Kraus, hopefully we'll see a version of him if sequels that hopefully isn't voiced by Seth MacFarlane.
