Pacific Rim 2 Director Thinks King Ghidorah Should Star in a Solo Film

In an amusing break from shooting Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, director Steven DeKnight took to twitter recently to talk kaiju films. When asked which Godzilla series monster deserved his own movie, he replied, "King Ghidorah, without a doubt."

Posed with the question of whether or not the movie should be a prequel to King Ghidorah's first visit to Earth in 1964's Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, DeKnight was adamant about maintaining the human element. But he was intrigued by following up on Venus's destruction:

It's fun to note that DeKnight is clearly talking about the Japanese version of the film, seeing as the Americanized dub changed King Ghidorah's extermination of Venus to Mars.

DeKnight also gushed that Gamera 2: The Advent of Legion was his favorite of the Gamera films after replying he was a major fan of kaiju films. It seems that Pacific Rim: Maelstrom is in the right hands. Could he be taking inspiration from these films? Maybe he could sign up for a solo King Ghidorah movie himself? What say you Legendary?

it would be awesome to see an king ghidorah spin off

I agree; GhidorahSama & Destroyah have the most tangible stand alone story that could have elements correlated to later Gojirra Films ^_^

King Ghidorah. Godzilla's oldest enemy that hasn't become his ally later (Anguirus, Rodan and Mothra don't count because, while they have fought each other, they have also teamed up with Godzilla). The King of Terror. The Planet Killer. The Three-Headed Monster. It is hard to believe Ghidorah doesn't have his own solo movie.

I would be good with this.

I need this in my life!

I'd be alright with that.

I would love it, but one might think that it wouldn't be able to garner as much money in at box office that Godzilla did, but I doubt that. I mean no average movie-goer would pass up the opportunity to see 3 giant monsters fighting, and if its marketed right, they would definitely want to see a prequel film about one of them.

Also, with Guillermo no longer doing Pacific Rim 2, is he in possible talks for Godzilla 2?

Maybe he'll direct a Ghidorah film
