Universal’s monster movies may have actually been the forerunner to the modern “cinematic universe” trend we’re seeing thanks to Marvel as they often crossed over with each other and had stylistic similarities, but that doesn’t mean Universal should be doing it for real. Evidently reshoots for Dracula Untold were done that establish the film into a monster universe that the studio is building. Evidently the new Mummy will be the kick off for this film.
In terms of Untold (spoiler warning) the new scene is one of Dracula in modern day being followed by the vampire who sired him, who then says, “Let the games begins.” Obviously not the crucial, but it sounds like Draculas sire is going to play a big role in a modern day monster universe. We’re guessing there will be some team up with the Wolfman, Dracula, the Mummy and Frankenstein’s monster at some point.[via Badass Digest]
