Godzilla vs Kong continues to add to its cast.
According to new reporting from Variety, Brian Tyree Henry has been cast in the film, in an unknown, but “significant” role. Henry will be joining a cast that includes Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown and Deadpool 2‘s Julian Dennison. Black Panther and The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira is rumored to play some sort of role as well.
Henry is known for his Emmy-nominated performance on Atlanta, as well as This is Us and Hotel Artemis.
Godzilla vs Kong is directed by Adam Wingard, not too much is known about the story other than the two titans colliding with each other. Fans will see a teaser for the epic encounter at the next year’s Godzilla King of the Monsters in a post credits scene.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters takes place five years after the events of the first Godzilla, and since then the Titan defender hasn’t been seen by anyone. As director Michael Dougherty previously revealed, the world is on edge a bit.
“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” Dougherty said. “There’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”
