It seems like the apocalypse got pushed back a little further. According to a piece of paper in a set photo, it looks like there is confirmation of several returning cast members. for the Pacific Rim sequel, now titledPacific Rim: Uprising. Unfortunately the Instgram post appears to have been yanked off the net, but someone seems to have saved (and blown up) the important part.
The sheet tells us that unlike her movie partner Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam), Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) will be making a return appearance. Also, we'll get a returning pair of doctors; Dr. Newton Geiszler (Charlie Day) and Dr. Hermann Gottlieb (Burn Gorman) should also be back. These characters will be joining the already confirmed new cast including actors Scott Eastwood (Lambert?), Caliee Spaeny (Amara?), Jing Tian, and John Boyega.
But wait… what's that other name on the list? Is that Karl Urban (Judge Dredd and Star Trek reboots, Skurge in Thor: Ragnarok)? Could Pacific Rim: Uprising be seeing some Urban combat? Well, according to the actor himself… no.
