With reviews being decidedly mixed for Dracula Untold, Producer Alissa Phillips has surprisingly revealed that Dracula Untold will indeed be a part of the larger Universal Monsters shared universe. I admire her confidence. I haven't even seen Dracula Untold yet, but I think they've secured a great Dracula in Luke Evans and it would be a shame to lose him.
Whatever mistakes may or may not have been made in Dracula Untold, it would seem unnecessary to scrap everything and start again. Universal would do better to learn from their mistakes and move on with their universe while improving it. I would like to see the very first shared universe make a comeback, so I'm glad they seem determined to keep pressing ahead.
