More Monsters Join The Dark Universe

This weekend, Universal kicks off its Dark Universe with Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy.

However, the Tom Cruise action flick is just the beginning. Speaking with Fandom, Kurtzman revealed the complete line-up of characters joining the Dark Universe beyond The Mummy.

"We know we’re going to do Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Invisible Man."

"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."

While a few key players have already been cast, including Cruise, Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem, Kurtzman has a few more stars he'd like to bring into the Dark Universe.

"I’d love to bring Michael Fassbender in, I’d love to bring Jennifer Lawrence in, I’d love to see Charlize Theron in there, Angelina Jolie."

Each film will be connected through the multi-national organization known as Prodigium led by the enigmatic Dr. Henry Jekyll, who protects civilization from knowledge of these monsters.

The next film in the series is Bill Condon’s The Bride Of Frankenstein in 2019.

The Mummy arrives in theatres on June 9th.
