Guillermo Del Toro wants to move Pacific Rim from kaiju homage to straight-up kaiju canon. Good luck with that.

Speaking with Movie Pilot, Del Toro said:

So far with the sequel, what we’re writing, what we’re creating, is very different, so there are no plans. Hypothetically, I would love the fuck out of it. I would love to see a jaeger and Godzilla duke it out. That would be too much for the human brain.


A) Fans have you covered. B) They are both produced by Legendary; it’s not at all impossible.

Godzilla used to fight everyone, so this isn’t out of character for the franchise, the way some other crossovers desires might be. Plus, the studio might be into it since everyone’s doing as many interlocking tentpoles as possible these days. History and current trends on Del Toro’s side.
