With Disney making major bank off the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the better part of a decade, it was inevitable other movie studios would try to do the same. Universal tried to kickstart their so-called “Dark Universe” with The Mummy just two months ago (they failed). Just as moviegoers have begun to lose interest, Paramount hopes to turn the Transformers series into a shared universe. (Get ready for Bumblebee to have his own standalone movie next year.) Warner Bros. looked like they were best situated to match Marvel superhero for superhero, but stumbled repeatedly over the last few years, finally righting the figurative ship earlier this summer with Wonder Woman. But what’s better than one cinematic universe? Two, of course. Which brings us to Annabelle: Creation, the prequel to the prequel/spin-off of what’s being called the “Conjuring Universe.” Here’s the thing: If Annabelle: Creation, a modestly budgeted, period-set, old-school supernatural flick directed by David F. Sandberg (Lights Out), is any indication, Warner Bros. just might succeed and at a fraction of the comic-book/superhero price.

The upcoming R-rated reboot of Hellboy (Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen) is moving along. This time, instead of Del Toro, director Neil Marshall will take the reins of the film with Stranger Things’ David Harbour filling in Ron Pearlman’s big red shoes. Recently, Ian McShane was also cast as Professor Broom as well, so the movie’s coming along. The one thing missing so far was who was going to be Hellboy’s main big baddie. From the comics, one of Hellboy’s enemies was the Blood Queen, AKA Nimue the Lady of the Lake. But who could play the role with perfection, terror, and be able to be a conceivable threat against such a towering figure of Harbour? Lucky for us, it looks like we have found our Blood Queen…
