We knew Universal planned to kick start a new ‘Monster Universe’ with the upcoming ‘The Mummy’ reboot, well now it officially has a name, ‘Dark Universe’.
This new name was announced via a tweet from a new Twitter account, which had the following video attached. In this video there are clips from some classic monster movies, including ‘Dracula’, ‘Bride of Frankenstein’, ‘The Wolfman’, and ‘The Mummy’. These films are more than likely what we can expect to be rebooted for this new ‘Dark Universe’
Supporting this theory is the new announcement that ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ will be the second film of this universe, and it currently has a Valentines Day 2019 release date. Bill Condon, whose most recent film was Disney’s live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’, is set to direct.
Javier Bardem has been cast as Frankenstein’s Monster and Johnny Depp will be the Invisible Man! More casting announcements likely to come following this news!
