More monsters, more giant mecha suits (jaegers), and now The King of Monsters too! If director, Guillermo Del Toro has his way Godzilla will making an appearance in Pacific Rim 3! As you recall, Pacific Rim centers around Earth’s military trying to defend the planet from an otherworldly invasion of monsters from a portal in the Pacific Rim. The film was widely popular and successful, garnering a sequel that will be stomping its way into theaters in 2017. Guillermo feels adding Godzilla to the mix will make for an awesome film. Honestly, we have to agree. Can these mere humans in jaegers really be a match for a giant, invulnerable reptile who feeds on radiation and spits atomic energy? We think not!
The sequel to Pacific Rim, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom would be the prequel to the aforementioned third film. One has to wonder what in the second film would lead to an appearance for Godzilla in the third one Del Toro states, “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.” We would love to see the “Man vs. Monster” action too, but honestly we are rooting for Godzilla. Then again, these humans in this film are pretty technologically savvy. Maybe they will be the ones to bring MechaGodzilla to life!?
