Toho planning shared Kaiju universe!

Toho Company, Ltd. have announced that they will be focusing on creating their own shared universe for their kaiju-related properties. Tojo’s Keiji Ota spoke to Nikkei Style (via Bloody Disgusting) about his plans after Toho’s deal with Warner Bros. and Legendary comes to a close after 2021:

“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. 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 world view much like a Marvel movie where Iron Man and the Hulk can crossover with each other.”
