Speaking to Crave Online, Charlie Day revealed the original plan for his twitchy kaiju obsessive Newt was for him to turn evil in Pacific Rim 2, perhaps corrupted by his newfound skill for drifting with the monsters.
â€śI remember when I first met with [Guillermo del Toro] that he liked the idea of Newt becoming a bit of a villain in the second film,â€ť Day said.
â€śBut, I think over the course of making the film, and the way the character resonated with the audience, I donâ€™t think he would want to turn him into a villain now, but I really have no idea.
â€śGuillermo is one of these guys that his mind is so active that he might have an idea about something and then itâ€™s a completely different idea five minutes later.â€ť
