Toro was working on adding his version of the Frankenstein monster to The Dark Pictures universe. For those who do not remember, this was Universal Picture’s attempt at creating the avengers of iconic horror franchises. Creatures such as Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein, and The Mummy were set up to have their films that would eventually conclude in a team-up. However, after the failure that was The Mummy in 2017, plans for The Dark Universe were canceled.
