Pacific Rim Director Says King Kong & Godzilla Crossover Possible
The Jaegers and Kaiju may do battle with Kong and Godzilla!
Pacific Rim: Uprising Director Talks Possibility Of MonsterVerse Crossover!
In an interview with Steven S. DeKnight, Collider.com asked him if a potential crossover between Pacific Rim and Legendary's MosnterVerse with Godzilla and King Kong was possible and he said, “I won’t say there’s an Easter Egg but there’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility. 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.”
The shared movie universe is a popular these days since the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Films. Now we have Universal's fledgling Dark Universe, the ever-expanding X-Men movies as Fox, and Legendary's own MonsterVerse. Time will tell which ones succeed and which ones fail. The great thing that Legendary has going for it is that both the Pacific Rim and Monster Verse are popular and if one does fail the other can crossover and help it out. It'd be a blast to see Jaegers fighting Godzilla and Kong or them teaming up to battle other monsters like Mothra. There's a lot of potential here.
