Universal is bringing back its monsters and giving them the expanded cinematic universe treatment. And first up in its new batch of related action movies with classic silver screen horrors is the Tom Cruise-starring reboot – The Mummy.
The first entry into Universal’s Dark Universe introduces a few elements that will undoubtedly be a thing later on. There’s not only the ancient cursed undead baddie the name implies, but also a secret group dedicated to destroying evil, led by Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) of Jekyll and Hyde fame.
Often cinematic universe movies that have more films to tease on the way will include post-credits scenes. So, do you need to wait after the conclusion of The Mummy for one more monster-filled scene? Well, there’s no post-credits scene at the end of the film. But that doesn’t mean The Mummy doesn’t include some suggestion of future Dark Universe movies that’ll build off its cursed mythos.
