Guillermo del Toro confirms that the voice that fans hear in the new Pacific Rim trailer is indeed that of well-known video game villain GlaDOS, from the Portal series.

The movie director and producer says that, “I wanted very much to have her, because I’m a big Portal fan. But just as a wink. She’s not cake-obsessed. She’s not out to destroy humanity.”

He adds, “The filter we’re using is slightly less GLaDOS. Slightly. The one in the trailer I wanted to be full-on GlaDOS.”

A deal was worked out between Guillermo del Toro and Valve in order to make the Pacific Rim appearance possible.

The movie creator has previously expressed his love of Valve as a developer and his desire to work with them.

Pacific Rim will be launched in July of this year.
