Abe Sapien And Rasputin To Appear In ‘Hellboy’

Despite a franchise reboot taking place, multiple sources have confirmed to us that characters who were in Guillermo del Toro’s movies will show up in the new one. 


One of the leads in the first two movies, Abe Sapien, will make a small cameo. After Hellboy and co. take out the guards at an old base in Siberia, they discover a tank filled with water labeled “icthyo sapien.” Then a webbed, humanoid hand slaps against the glass. It’s very reminiscent of Abe’s first appearance in the comics

Another major character from the original movies, Grigori Rasputin, is set to make a cameo too. In a flashback sequence, we Rasputin summon Hellboy to earth. 

‘Hellboy’ is directed by Neil Marshall and stars David Harbour as the titular character and Mila Jovovich as the villainous Blood Queen. Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane, and Ian McShane are also in the film. It is set to release on April 12th, 2019.
