‘The Mummy’ To Introduce More Than Two Monsters
According to Movie Pilot, the latest “Mission: Impossible” star’s flick from Universal will be introducing two or even more monsters that will later on become a part of the proposed # Dark Universe story cycle. Regarding the characters of “The Mummy” it will include Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella) as well as Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe) who will become monsters in the flick.
However, the source predicts that one more monster may be introduced to increase the tension and thrill and make the overall plot unpredictable. A recently released TV spot showed footage of few seconds that indicated that the character of Nick Morton played by Tom Cruise will transform into a supernatural creature.
The footage showed Nick throwing the monstrous Ahmanet against a wall displaying his supernatural abilities. According to the storyline, Tom Cruise aka Nick is infected by the curse of Ahmanet and hence a connection has been established between these two. The footage shows that Nick is slowly transforming into Ahmanet-like monster himself in this particular reboot of “The Mummy.”
