PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING Director Planned For Third Film To Tie Into GODZILLA VS. KONG's MonsterVerse

A Pacific Rim/MonsterVerse crossover makes sense for a long list of reasons, and Uprising helmer Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) had hoped to make that happen if Pacific Rim 3 ultimately become a reality!

Neither of the Pacific Rim films made too significant an impact the global box office, but they weren't flops, and the franchise has a devoted fanbase. Netflix is even making an anime series, but it's looking unlikely that a third chapter will reach the big screen in the near future. 

Had it happened, however, Pacific Rim: Uprising director Steven S. DeKnight had ambitious plans for the threequel to tie into the MonsterVerse which films like Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla vs. Kong call home. 

It wasn't something the studio agreed to (at least not at this early stage), and DeKnight admits it wasn't until the end of the film that some sort of crossover would have been teased. The filmmaker doesn't get specific, unfortunately, but Godzilla stepping through a "Breach" to do battle with some Jaegers would have been nothing short of epic. 

It also feels like the logical next step for the MonsterVerse after Godzilla and King Kong go to war, but with that film heading to HBO Max, it's unclear what Warner Bros. has planned for the franchise. 

After all, without box office revenue as a measuring stick, it's possible the studio will put the brakes on any further sequels or spinoffs (Godzilla vs. Kong was a major box office disappointment, remember).
