Here is the film’s official plot synopsis:

“The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim: Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.”

Directed by Steven S. DeKnight, Pacific Rim: Uprising uprising stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, Jing Tian and Adria Arjona.

Pacific Rim: Uprising hits theaters on March 23, 2018.

DC Marvel Comic Book HeroesThink back 30 years ago, a time without the current Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe, a time where fans were limited to just comic books and imagination to bring these characters to life. We currently live in one of the most prosperous generations for both Marvel and DC as the two companies have become major Hollywood powerhouses. It is clear that both Marvel and DC are here to stay in the world of film and television and bring us quality content moving forwards.

When you have two very powerful fan bases, as Marvel and DC do, debate will inevitable stem from these groups. Fans love to see two great characters battle it out and fans particularly love to debate Marvel vs DC battles. It is very rare that we see crossovers from the two companies, leading to a lot of speculation between fans. One thing we all can agree on however is the fact that these battles are just as amazing as they are polarizing. While it is highly unlikely we will ever see any crossovers between Marvel and DC on the big screen, it is fun to think about a few potential matchups.

Here are a few character clashes we would love to see on the big screen. Click Next to get started!
