Dark Universe? Sounds a bit generic. The Bride of Frankenstein movie sounds like it might be interesting, though.

It's also a case of The Name's The Same when I first saw it announced I didn't look at who released the info and I thought it was an adaptation of Justice League Dark because that is what Guillermo del Toro's adaptation was going to be called; DC evenwas going to change the title of the comic book to Dark Universe during their DC YOU period a couple of years ago. That book got delayed so much that it never happened.

It wasn't until I saw the Universal Pictures logo that I realized what it was.

I would've suggested Monsterverse if that wasn't already taken by Legendary's universe with Godzilla and Kong.

My big worry I have about this particular universe is what it's gonna culminate in. The MCU and the DCEU have a clear point where everything finally culminates together (The Avengers and Justice League). The Monsterverse is going to be culminating with a Kong vs. Godzilla remake. What's this gonna culminate into, some kind of monster team-up or something? Maybe a House of [insert monster here] movie would be intriguing.

Weren't they planning on Cruise starring in a Van Helsing reboot or something?

Here I was hoping that it wasn't as bland as the trailer made is seem.

This score isn't even that much better than friggin' Dracula Untold. Kinda disappoints me because I want a shared universe based off of the Universal Horror movies to work.

So much for the dark universe.

I suppose you could try Dracula again, but at this point I'd rather see a Hellsing movie.

If the movie is successful, then they could potentially salvage the universe. We'll have to wait and see on that though.

Wonder Woman seems to be decking this movie in the face as far as Box Office goes, at any rate.

Hmmm, quite a shame considering I like the premise of how this Mummy got her powers and how she became a mummy. I wouldn't mind taking that idea and mixing her along with Imhotep and Kharis as a trio of undead mummies. She would be the Big Bad, Imhotep would be The Heavy, and Kharis would be The Brute.

Though personally, I would have started with the Son of Frankenstein and work the universe from there. I did like how that movie deals with the legacy of Dr. Henry Frankenstein through his son and how Frankenstein's work is implied but not outright shown in flashback. It's gives that sense of mystery and dread, which is in line of the original novel refusing to explain how Frankenstein revived the monster.

That and the fact that Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman share a common origin point in Europe as well as the fact they are gothic in nature.

So, no hopes for this shared universe?

Goes to the corner and sobs.

If there was anything I needed right now, is the horror shared universe.

[up] Sounds great.

Tracking suggests a $35M opening for The Mummy, and that was before reviews came in. I doubt this is going anywhere.

Won't be too long, I think.

If that happens, this universe is more troubled than D Cs.

I'm mainly asking because I heard Tom Cruise's character was gonna become Satan at the end. That would be a strange move to make a film out of.

Is that a bad film? I looked it up and it seems to be a Cult Classic.
