Alex Kurtzman, descartando que la última versión del vampiro "Dracula Untold" forme parte del nuevo universo de monstruos, ha realizado unas interesantísimas declaraciones donde queda claro que ha tomado nota de los fracasos de otros a la hora de originar universos cinematográficos:
"I believe strongly that the only way you can build a universe is not to start by trying to build a universe.
If you want to get there, the only way you’re going to get there is if the audience allows you to get there. Meaning, you have to do great individual films first.
The audience has to fall in love with those movies first, and those characters first, and if they do and you develop an organic story reason to start bringing them together, great!
But you can’t start with ‘Let’s just mash everybody together’…
In order for you to enjoy ‘The Mummy,’ you have to have a satisfying ‘Mummy’ experience. If we are then in that context able to set up a larger world? Great!
But the setup of that larger world and whatever characters [star Tom Cruise] may meet over the course of the mummy movie have to be part of the mummy movie. It cannot take you out of that.”
