Toho has seen a fair bit if success with their most recent Godzilla movies, so it should come as no surprise that talks have now begun regarding the creation of a shared Godzilla Cinematic Universe for the non-U.S. Godzilla movies.
Speaking with Japanese outlet Nikkei Style, Toho executive Keiji Ota laid out plans for the franchise’s future and says that after 2021, they hope to begin releasing new Godzilla movies once every two years - and perhaps even annually if possible.
"The future of the series and its forward development are very conscious of the method of ‘shared universe’. Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, etc. could all share a single world 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."
For those wondering, this new cinematic universe will not include the recent Godzilla film from Gareth Edwards, or its upcoming 2019 sequel. It will also not include a follow-up to Hideaki Anno’s critically acclaimed Shin Godzilla from 2016.
