“Perhaps, One Day They Can Rumble!”
Guillermo del Toro has teased the idea of a crossover movie combining the worlds of Godzilla Vs. Kong and Pacific Rim.
Godzilla Vs. Kong is set to come out on March 26th worldwide, with a US streaming release on HBO Max five days later.
Exploring the potential interconnectivity between that movie and his 2013 film Pacific Rim in a new tweet, del Toro wrote –
“I personally love seeing the Neon, Sea battles, building demolition, etc because secretly -maybe- the PAC RIM Universe co-exists in the LEGENDARY Kaijuverse and, perhaps, one day they can rumble!”

And as much as GDT is just teasing, Warner Bros. does put out all of these movies, so there shouldn’t be any rights issues, and Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight told Collider in 2017 that there had been some informal discussions about a potential crossover –

A recently-released trailer for Godzilla Vs. Kong saw two of cinema’s most legendary monsters clash in a mash-up of the Godzilla and King Kong franchises, with the film set to star Millie Bobby Brown, Alexander Skarsgård, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry –
The synopsis for Godzilla Vs. Kong reads –
“The epic next chapter in the cinematic Monsterverse pits two of the greatest icons in motion picture history against one another – the fearsome Godzilla and the mighty Kong – with humanity caught in the balance.”
What say you Ouposters… Are you down for seeing giant CGI battles between monsters and machines as they trade blows while demolishing entire cities in the process?
