Universal Studios is launching their Dark Universe with The Mummy, now in theaters. First, we talk a bit about The Mummy, including why it’s not as bad as people say, even when looking at the box office numbers. Then it’s on to the Dark Universe with our fan casting! We cast a dozen different characters we expect or want to see in the upcoming Dark Universe movies including the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Van Helsing, plus more.
