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’.
