Watch out San Diego because Warner Bros is bringing the King of the Monsters, Godzilla, to Comic-Con in Hall H!
King of the Monsters is the sequel to the 2014 Godzilla film reboot directed by Gareth Edwards, as well as the third installment in Warner Bros.’ MonsterVerse cinematic universe after that film and last year’s Kong: Skull Island. Plans are already in motion to bring the Godzilla and Kong sub-franchises together in 2020, with the appropriately-titled crossover Godzilla vs. Kong from You’re Next and Death Note filmmaker Adam Wingard.
The next Godzilla film is directed by Michael Dougherty and written by Dougherty, Zach Shields, and Max Borenstein. It is a sequel to Godzilla (2014) and will be the 35th film in the Godzilla franchise, the third film in Legendary‘s MonsterVerse, and the third Godzilla film to be completely produced by a Hollywood studio. The film stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.
“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.”
Godzilla King of the Monsters arrives in theaters May 31st, 2019.
