Dracula Untold released in 2014 to middling reviews. Critics seemed to agree that the film wasn’t terrible, but certainly didn’t serve as an adequate franchise-starter, and even less an entryway into a planned “shared universe”. As a result, a sequel wasn’t planned, and Universal confirmed that Dracula Untold would officially be considered “non-canon”, with 2017’s The Mummy serving as the prologue to the Dark Universe.
However, the film does have its fans, and one of those fans happens to be its star Luke Evans. During an interview with Screen Rant, the Professor Marston and the Wonder Women actor expressed his hopes to be included in Universal’s Dark Universe:
“I think it was a really enjoyable process for me. I think it definitely had a few flaws in it but I’ve had a lot of good feedback from and I get people me asking me will there we sequel. We left it very wide open, you know, this is a character who could transcend many different times and different periods of history. Who knows. I’d love to bring him back in some concept or context, but honestly, you know as little as I do when it comes with what is going in on the dream rooms of Universal Studios. I really don’t know.”
What did you think of Dracula Untold? After the poor reviews for The Mummy, would it be best for a sequel to also be non-canon? Let us know in the comments!
