The Verge also noted the delay in this release date: Originally, the film was supposed to drop in April 2017 but has continuously been pushed back, making its fate appear bleak. However, this February, del Toro gave his blessing to Steven S. DeKnight, Daredevil's head writer, to take over the directing role.

Star Wars' John Boyega was cast as the star of the forthcoming action film. The first Pacific Rim starred Charlie Hunnam.
