Of all the shared universe ideas that are floating around in development because of the success of the MCU, the one that I like the most is the concept of a shared Universe for the classic monsters from Universal. They’ve signed some big names and have big plans for bringing monsters like The Mummy, Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, etc. back to the big screen. It all starts, though, with Tom Cruise and The Mummy (though Russell Crowe’s Dr. Jekyll will be in the film). You can read more about the plot and overall plans for the Monsterverse below via Coming Soon. I thought the trailer was pretty fricking fantastic, and wildly exceeded my expectations. The Mummy will open next summer on June 9, 2017.
