'Godzilla' Roundup: Alternative Concept Art and the Possibility of 'Pacific Rim' Crossovers

'Godzilla' Roundup: Alternative Concept Art and the Possibility of 'Pacific Rim' Crossovers

It’s a question percolating in the back of every kaiju-loving fanboy’s mind: Could we eventually see Godzilla and the world of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim collide? Legendary CEO Thomas Tull tackled that very question in a recent interview with Collider.

The interviewer asks Tull if the two films exist in the same universe – thereby making a crossover a very real possibility. This is Tull’s response:

“They’re completely different worlds.”

That would seemingly put the kibosh on the King of Monsters teaming up with the Kaiju in del Toro’s cinematic universe once and for all – but maybe not. They’re different worlds, but that doesn’t mean there couldn’t be a way they could crossover at some point. Still, it seems rather unlikely that we’ll see Jaegers and Godzilla sharing a screen anytime soon, unless it’s just a really cool double-feature night at a theater. Bummer.

While that news is disappointing, at least we’ve got something Godzilla related to be excited about today – and it comes in the form of four new pieces of concept art.

When you relaunch a character as iconic as Godzilla, you undoubtedly spend a lot of time making sure you get his appearance just right. To do that, you commission a whole lot of conceptual pieces in order to figure out what fits the vision of your project. Sometimes this goes horribly wrong (see Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla), other times the trial-and-error method works out pretty well.

With that in mind, feast your eyes on these four concept pieces for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. Nice to see a nod to the classic take on the character (giant thighs and all) in the mix. [via Comic Book Movie]
