You may not have noticed this, but Universal studios has been working on their monster movies. No, not horror movies involving monsters, but superhero style movies involving characters from Universal's famous older monster movies. There's already been I Frankenstein and Dracula Untold.
Recently Tom Cruise has engaged in talks to be in a Mummy movie, that will likely be in this same cinematic universe. "Cinematic universe" meaning all these characters are supposed to be operating in the same world and will be interacting in an Avengers style movie down the line.
