A Universe of Monsters: Pacific Rim: Uprising Director Planned Godzilla and Kong Crossover

Posted By themoviesleuth 955 days ago on Entertainment -  With folks chomping at the bit to see the massive cinematic battle between Godzilla and Kong, the director of Pacific Rim: Uprising has revealed that he had a plan to crossover that MonsterVerse with the futuristic franchise. Steven S. DeKnight recently said that if the second Pacific Rim had done better box office receipts, there would have been a definite third entry and his plan for later was to attempt to cross over with Kong and Godzilla for a major event movie. Obviously, there are no current plans to make this happen as both franchises have not really delivered much financially. Godzilla: King of the Monsters was not a huge box office success. With the new movie getting a same day streaming and theatrical release, there's really no measuring stick as far as financials go. The studio had never green lit this idea, but it was something he was passionate about doing. He had actually begun structuring the third Pacific Rim story to feature a finale that would have pitted Kong and Godzilla versus the giant mechs. Read what he said on Twitter, stating that it was just in the idea phase:To clarify, my plan does not mean that’s what would have happened. It was just an idea.— Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) February 11, 2021 (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ?
