Fuck. Half of me is instantly worried that they might try to flog this setting until everyone is thoroughly sick of it, Transformers style. The other half of me is jumping up and down shouting "Giant robots!".
If this could be the jumpstart for more giant robot media in general I'd be happy. Otherwise, eh.
Yknow, I get the cinematic universe fatigue argument, but Pacific Rims genuinely one of my all time favourite films, so Im here for this. Of course, they actually need to demonstrate that they can make a worthy successor without Del Toro first. Im really, really hoping the fight scenes hold up without his direction.
I dont mind faster, more agile, Gundam-style mecha at all... But making mecha look good alongside live action characters/locations is super fucking difficult, going by how thoroughly awful the Bay Transformers films have always looked, so Im still kinda worried.
