Toho is working on a Godzilla Cinematic Universe, but no Shin Godzilla sequel

Keiji Ota was recently talking about Toho’s plans for Godzilla. Ota is Toho’s Chief Godzilla Officer over Goji-kon, or the Godzilla Strategy Council which launched in October 2014. That would such a cool council to be on!

The Council has decided that they are going to rebuild a Godzilla cinematic universe and Ota had this to say about the plans.

The future of the series and its forwarding developments are very conscious of the method of “shared universe”. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single worldview much like a Marvel movie where Iron Man and the Hulk can crossover with each other.

It is said that each movie can be a possible film production where any one of them could lead a film of their own as the titular character.

After 2021, we’re thinking of a potential strategy that [releases] Godzilla movies uninterrupted at a rate of every 2 years, although there is a preference for a yearly pace as well.

One of the most recent Godzilla films was 2016’s Shin Godzilla, aka Godzilla Resurgence, which was a slight reimagining of the big guy. However, it seems that going forward there are no plans for a sequel.

Shin Godzilla was a huge hit, but instead of thinking of doing the obvious idea of making a Shin Godzilla 2, instead think about a world that can be used for a long time, I’d rather make a World of Godzilla.

I am up for more Godzilla from Toho and the more monsters the merrier!

What would you like to see in the Godzilla Cinematic Universe?
