Zack Snyder fans successfully staged a campaign to get Warner Bros. ‘attention and convince the studio to release the director’s cut of Zack Snyder of League of Justice—Which became the extremely expensive and slightly improved Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueProving once and for all that if a fanbase is loud and aggressive enough, they can make any ridiculous dream come true (as long as their dream coincides with a film studio feeling an overwhelming sense of despair at the amount of content available on their new transmission platform). The point is: they did. It worked. They tweeted enough hashtags and got enough responses from people and made so much noise that Warner Bros. decided it actually made sense to spend millions and millions of dollars to shut them up (but in a nice way). Now … it’s happening again.
Today, while Christians on Twitter celebrated Easter by making “Jesus” become the number two trend in America (we’re just being sarcastic, “Happy Easter” is currently number one), Godzilla fans got that ” #ContinueTheMonsterverse “appeared in the top 10 as well. The need for the hashtag is based on that idea. that Godzilla vs. Kong looks like the finale of the series that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have been working on since Gareth Edwards Godzilla back in 2014 as the studios haven’t announced any kaiju movies that are in the works after this new one. Unsurprisingly, people who like to see incredibly large gorillas leaping into the hollow core of the Earth and respectable actors who say lines like “Godzilla is hurting people and we don’t know why” would like to see plus of those things, and they believe that making #ContinueTheMonsterverse become a trend on social media will attract the attention of WB and Legendary.
And would you look at that? Did. Today, Legendary tweeted a simple observation of the trending topic, confirming that, yes, he is aware that people would like more of these monster movies. Nothing new has been announced, but this at least seems like a good sign for more city-busting fun and lighthearted, mindless mythology to come. After all, these movies haven’t even featured Godzilla’s hideous son Minilla, and now that the Mechagodzilla card has been played, there’s no reason Legendary and WB couldn’t make Jet Jaguar.
