Talk of a Pacific Rim and Godzilla Monsterverse movie cross-over took the net by storm last month when Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven DeKnight expressed his interest in the idea. However he did clarify the concept was purely theoretical, it was enough to spark tremendous discussion across the web and social media, enough to even warrant a comment by Pacific Rim Uprising producer Cale Boyter during a press event earlier this year. Boyter confirmed that although an intriguing concept, Universal have no plans of pursuing a merger between the two cinematic universes:
There’s no plans to merge. Understandably that might be cool, but I might have something up my sleeve that will surprise you – that I think you guys will love, that I think is better than the obvious approach.
We're unsure of what Boyter is alluding to in place of a Godzilla cross-over in the above quote but it sounds like a similar cross-over might be in the cards. What else could they be planning? A cross-over with Ultraman? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
