Could the giant robots of Pacific Rim some day have to deal with the King of Monsters? It seems that is a possibility being discussed.
Speaking with Collider, Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven DeKnight revealed that the idea of Jaegers interacting with Godzilla has been discussed.
I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over]. Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary’s Monster Universe, it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we’ve talked about is that could happen, it’s always a possibility. It’s by far not a certainty; it’s merely theoretical at this point, but as a fan myself I would love to see that happen.
While interesting on paper, in reality the idea doesn’t do much for me. We know how this will play out:
Wash, rinse, repeat.
The studio wouldn’t want to kill off either property and wouldn’t want to alienate the fans of either franchise. Unless some other wacky trick could be found I would be bored before the cameras even rolled.
Godzilla Vs Kong is already set for 2020, and Pacific Rim Uprising hits theaters on March 23, 2018.
