Legendary is the studio behind the Pacific Rim franchise as well as the new versions of King Kong and Godzilla, leading to recent rumors that the three worlds could someday collide up on the big screen. We already know that Kong and Godzilla will be doing battle come 2020, so it’s not impossible to imagine Jaegers being brought into the mix.
In fact, Pacific Rim Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight recently noted that Pacific Rim eventually crossing over into Legendary’s MonsterVerse has been discussed!
“There’s been a lot of discussion about that possibility [of crossing over],” DeKnight noted last year. “Look I think it would be fantastic to have the Pacific Rim universe join Legendary’s Monster Universe… it seems like a natural step. And part of the big overall plan after the third movie we’ve talked about is that could happen, it’s always a possibility. It’s by far not a certainty; it’s merely theoretical at this point, but as a fan myself I would love to see that happen.”
Imagining such a mashup, Hidetaka Tenjin has taken it upon himself to combine the worlds of Godzilla and Pacific Rim for a pretty epic crossover poster, which you’ll find below. The mashup art celebrates the releases of both Pacific Rim Uprising (April 13 in Japan) and the new animated film Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle (May 18).
