Universal Monster Universe Ditches Horror
Universal Studios has ditched the horror aspect of their upcoming classic monster reboots in lieu of more action focused films. This news comes on the heels of Dracula Reborn, the Dracula reboot featuring Luke Evans, which is now the equivalent of the first Iron Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The most recent Mummy film was extremely successful without relying on horror and that seems to be the model Universal will be following unlike the Benicio Del Toro Wolfman remake. I'm interested to see where they go with this cinematic universe even if I feel like this cinematic universe has the potential to be derivative. Not everyone can be as successful as Marvel has with their cinematic universe but hopefully Universal can do something original with the concept.
