From what I could gather, Russell Crowe as Jeckyl/Hyde was supposed to be the Nick Fury/Sam Jackson role.  IE, bringing them all together.  Had it worked out.  Hence his appearance in the Mummy flick. 

That I got-but bring them together for what purpose?  Maybe to fight that god of death mentioned in The Mummy, but why would the monsters fight something that's probably on their side?  Or could it have been a reverse-Avengers type deal with the world finding itself attacked  by collection of evil?

Second, the abbot and Costello movies are considered part of the Univeral monster collection-so would the modern equivalent be something like Key and Peele meet Dracula

Well if all humans died, Dracula. Has. No food source so he might fight to protect human existence.  The wolfman is still human most of the time so he might oppose the destruction of humanity.  The mummy wants to rule humanity as a divine goddess so she might fight the death goddess.  As for Frankenstein,  well he thinks little girls. Are pretty and has a soft spot for them.

I quite enjoyed Dracula Untold, and looked forward to a movie series that brought that character back. The idea of it being a superhero movie never occurred to me, but it makes a lot of sense in hindsight.

Never really researched what his reasoning for being all together was or is.  But we're not getting more anyways so.  I dunno.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
