    It's good thing Tom Cruise wasn't picked for Tony Stark in the MCU. He seems to be box office bomb fodder for cinematic universe (except Mission Impossible)

    Another problem; the gods. In Egyptian mythology, Anubis is the god of death and Set is the god of chaos. Something minor, but still irritating.

    A cinematic universe based on the classic universal monsters wouldn't be a bad idea, if done correctly. What I would have done if I was making Mummy as the first movie of the Dark Universe would have it be a stand-alone horror flick, maybe a haunted house style horror version where a bunch of archaeologists discover a new Egyptian tomb, accidentally release the Mummy, and she goes on the hunt for her long lost lover, killing all those she believes "wronged her" (remember how Mummy 2 played with the idea of the girl being a reincarnation of an Egyptian princess? It's kind of that, but more played as a coincidence and some stupid mystical destiny). The movie would be driven through atmosphere and suspense, maybe even with some more practical elements since it shouldn't call for anything too extravagant. And then a post-credit can show that one of the surviving archaeologists approach Russel Crowe's organization and give him the sarcophagus of the Mummy, and then he can say something like "let's make sure she doesn't wake up again" As for general longevity, the universe could just be a series of standalone monster movies each featuring a classic monster, and having somebody involved with the organization end up encountering the monster. No need for a big mega-crossover like Avengers. Even if it's just small stories that acknowledge they exist in the same universe it could still work.

    The NC *really* needs to stop riding the Army's dick. No, they're not saints, or even good guys. Not even close. It's their job to kill. You cannot be a beacon of morality when you are a soldier for a country that constantly attacks other nations.

    The part that really REALLY pisses me off is that Set isn’t the god of death. If it’s anyone, it’s Osiris or Anubis. Set is the god of DESERTS AND EVIL. For some reason calling him the god of death really pisses me off.

    The Dark Universe did the same thing the DCU did; Instead of doing a single movie like MCU did (Iron Man), and building off of its success... they started with the shared universe, and nobody could get invested. MCU > DCU > DU in getting lazier.

    While YES the movie is a HORRIBLE remake (who really wants to see a 50 something year old Tom Cruise run around trying to look WAY younger?!) it IS a good stand alone movie. I LIKE that they made the mummy a woman, and it takes a bit to really get into the movie and the female woman is a prissy judgmental bitch oh well we can't all be perfect right? I prefer Brandon Fraiser and Rachel Weis but even more I love the first Mummy the black and white one

    only marvel and Freddy vs Jason seems to have noticed the only way the cinematic universe works is to make the move to stand alone , add a hint outside of the story(hell a background hint works to) then build up bit by bit till your set ups done then collision movie, preferably by setting up the threat/ villain indirectly (Loki) then Boom Avengers!

    Here's the thing.. I think that ending... WAS teasing the Wolf Man. I mean, why not? It's clear the people who made this film know jackshit about Egyptian Mythology. Seth is NOT the God of Death, ANUBIS is. Anyone who's done history in SCHOOL should know that much. And hell, even ignoring THAT brainfart, if you're gonna have Seth involved in any capacity, logically, you'd involve Horus as a counterforce. The two DID fight for control over Egypt. So yeah, it wouldn't surprise me that that the braindead jackasses who made this wouldn't know the difference between a jackal and a wolf. This is dumber than BvS's Lex Luthor using the story of Prometheus stealing the fires of Olympus to give to man as a weak analogy for Man VS God... in a universe where the gods of mythology ACTUAULLY EXIST.

    Well, I suppose the princess was angry and vengeful because she was the apple of the eye of the reign and then she was replaced by a baby just because the baby had a penis, so she saw herself as scorned and betrayed by her family and people. I suppose she never was meant to be reasonable. Sure, according egyptian rules, she eventually should have married her brother and she would become the queen anyway, but...

      Mother of The Universe The Evil Dead(Original one(s). was made with the crew needing to warm themselves and fight-off the freezing temperatures by literally using campfires, actually resorting to BURNING the cabin/furnitures to get some warmth and thaw their equipment each day 'cause they couldn't get proper fundings and the rough way it looked made it clear just how much dedication there was in the final product, hence why the low budget didn't get in the way but instead made the movie a genuine cult hit, almost overnight. So with enough time and crowd funding... Yes?
