Could There Still Be Life In Universal’s Dark Universe?

About a year ago Universal Studios announced their Dark Universe, because with the Disney, Warner Bros., Fox and Sony all having their own universes they needed one as well. Their answer was using the classic movie monsters like the Mummy, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Invisible Man and Dr. Henry Jekyll. The Dark Universe kicked off soon after with Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis.

Unfortunately the film was terrible. It did really bad at the box office and was torn apart by critics. But Universal wanted to keep it going, next up would be Bill Condon’s Bride of Frankenstein. Soon into pre-production the film was postponed and then Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan left the Dark Universe project all together. The Dark Universe seemed to be finished.

Or is it? SlashFilm noticed that on one of Robert Vargas’ posts on on Instagram, we might have gotten a clue that the Dark Universe is still alive. Check out the post below.

It is interesting to note that he says that he had met with “The Dark Universe Team” and that he was “looking forward to contributing to the Universal Pictures legacy with my work. Monster things in the works.” Could it be he is working on some type of concept art? Or could this be some other artistic project? In the post he also uses the hashtag LAmurals, so this may not have anything to do with the failed Universe.

Could they be trying to bring the Dark Universe from the dead? Or should they leave this in it’s grave? Let us know in the comment section below!
