A couple months ago, we reported (warned) that Universal was looking to lump together all its classic monster movie properties (Dracula, Mummy, Wolfman, God knows what else) into a universe where they can all get together and party or attack people or get attacked.

It’s not only been confirmed that this is happening, but that the upcomingDracula Untold has been re-cut at the last minute to give the requisite nods, winks, and foreshadows to viewers. After that, next up seems to be a Mummy reboot in 2016.

The funny part about this (funny for me, anyway) is that Dracula Untold is getting sorta-terrible reviews, so their efforts to use this to begin the discussion of their monster universe seems misguided. I mean, we have enough universes to keep track of. Did they really need to give us one more that won’t really come to fruition for two more years?*

*Yes.
