Godzilla is set to make a comeback thanks to the TV series MonsterVerse on Apple TV+, which recently saw Wyatt and Kurt Russell star in the title role, but that’s not the only place that will bring back the King of Monsters. Legendary Pictures has already confirmed that a sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong On the horizon with a March 2024 release date, and filming appears to have already begun, with an Australian news program giving us a look at filming a beach scene that will see the return of a big kaiju.
at first Godzilla vs. Kong In the movie, a large primate is taken from Skull Island in order to lead a group of scientists to “The Hollow Land”, the birthplace of several giants who once roamed the land within the MonsterVerse. Unfortunately for Kong, the Lizard King wasn’t keen on any potential competition for his crown, and the two famous beasts tangled with each other multiple times throughout the film. In the end, Godzilla was able to stand up as the victor, but it looks like a rematch is close and it should be interesting to see if the Governor of Skull Island will be able to win during this sequel.

While details about the sequel’s story are few and far between at this point, the film confirmed that the original crossover director, Adam Wingard, will be returning to directing duties. On top of Wingard’s return, the film is set to see actor Dan Stevens in the title role, and fans may remember Stevens from his roles in FX Corps And the Disney Beauty and the Beast. As it stands, the movie did not confirm that there are any new Titans entering the fray but there are certainly more than a few to choose from.
