Considering Imhotep's reign as the predominant mummy in movie monster history it seems strange that Universal Pictures would abandon such an iconic character when attempting to build a cinematic universe of monster movies. The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, is the studio's second attempt at launching their cinematic universe, following the mixed reception for 2014's Dracula untold, by casting French-Algerian actress Sofia Boutella as Ahmanet, an Egyptian princess whose thirst for power, saw her condemned to a hidden, eternal prison.

Although many audiences (myself included) enjoyed Brendan Fraser's run in the last iteration of this franchise, and while many classic horror movie fans will fondly remember Boris Karloff's iconic role in helping create the character, when considering the audience's familiarity with the character it is somewhat understandable that the series is being rebooted with a new antagonist. However, I have always held that the UMCU (Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe) should have been developed as a series of horror movies, not action movies and that The Mummy should have been written and designed Clive Barker.
