Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have announced that the upcoming Godzilla sequel, the next chapter in their cinematic MonsterVerse, has officially begun production!
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
For longtime fans of the Godzilla franchise, this will be welcome news – though there will undoubtedly be those who want to throw daggers at the original Godzilla reboot, for the way that film held back from showing Kaiju vs Godzilla battle moments, until the third act climax. From the way the plot sounds, this sequel might certainly make up for it!
Starring Zhang Ziyi, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Ken Watanabe, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Aisha Hinds, Godzilla 2 is set to stomp into theaters on March 22, 2019!
