How The Wolf Man Made the Universal Monster World

In an age of superheroes, we look back at the Universal Monsters, the first true shared movie universe, and how the Wolf Man united it.

This is a great piece by David Crow on Den of Geek, fantastic research, and the moral of the story is that considering everything that made Universal huge, –their movie monsters, –is now being used to cash in on a superhero craze that will only further remove the scary from our monsters of old, and insert three-dimensional empathy for the monsters we already loved for their tragic stories.

The history and the fun behind these monsters is what keeps them near and dear to our hearts, and this article covers everything you didn’t know, but always wondered, about the Universal Wolf Man’s role in shaping a fantastic world of campy magic and humorous horror.
