Universal Pictures has officially dubbed their crossover of monster films the “Dark Universe” series.

Kicking off their reboot of monster movies is The Mummy set to release this summer, with Bride of Frankenstein hitting theaters February 14, 2019.

Universal’s string of crossover films is inspired by Marvel Studio’s Cinematic Universe, which sees the events and characters of each film carrying over into the next. Each film will star an iconic monster that helped establish the Horror genre, like Dracula and Invisible Man, and will lead into a movie starring them all like The Avengers.

Universal planned to release a film in the Dark Universe series in 2018, but have decided to focus on Bride of Frankenstein, helmed by Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon. Company chairman Donna Langley described the movie as a story about a “very modern woman in a very classic tale.”

Although no details on who will play the bride has surfaced, Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem are already onboard to play The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster, respectively, and Russell Crowe will be making his debut as Dr. Jekyll in The Mummy.

Stay tuned for more info as its announced.
