In an interview with Fandom, Alex Kurtzman spoke about the other Universal monster creations that would be featuring in the new Dark Universe. In addition to the known re-imaginings of Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man and, of course, the imminent The Mummy; Dracula, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera are also in the works.
He further says:
“There are characters within those films that can grow and expand and maybe even spin off. I think that digging into deep mythologies about monsters around the world is fair game for us, as well and connecting the monsters that we know to some surprising monsters could also be really interesting.”
He also goes on to say that he’d love to bring in Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Angelina Jolie into the Dark Universe, which implies that Jolie may be the Bride of Frankenstein, as we have previously pondered.
We are intrigued to see where this ambitious Dark Universe will go and with The Mummy hot on the heels of its release, it won’t be long until we find out how things are going to kick off.
The Mummy will be released on 9th June.
