Welcome to a new world of Gods and Monsters! Universal Pictures just announced that The Mummy will be the beginning of what is now officially titled the Dark Universe. The studio just released a teaser for the upcoming connected universe, teasing some of the creatures we might see in upcoming movies. This isn’t the first time Universal has attempted to recreate the connected monster universe but I’m hoping The Mummy is good enough to warrant the universe.
The Dark Universe will consist of movies featuring classic monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde, the Wolfman, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Invisible Man. Today the studio announced that Johnny Depp will portray the Invisible Man and Javier Bardem will play Frankenstein’s Monster. Tom Cruise is expected to continue with his character from The Mummy, Sofia Boutella is the actual Mummy and Russell Crowe will portray Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde.
Check out the teaser for Universal’s Dark Universe below!
