‘Godzilla King of Monsters’ details emerge, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidora confirmed

Godzilla returned the big screen in 2014 with a new film directed by Gareth Edwards (Rogue One) and starred Bryan Cranston, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Now the new franchise will officially grow as the sequel enters production.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will serve as the official title for the second film and new cast member Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things will star is being directed by Michael Dougherty (Trick R Treat, Krampus).

While the MUTOs from Godzilla played a huge role as eye candy to fight against the King of Monsters, there’s no doubt that Legendary Films and Warner Bros. will be putting up one of the largest brawls in the world of CGI.

Accompanying the official announcement is a synopsis which confirms that Godzilla will do battle with iconic foes Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah, which won’t come as too much of a surprise to anyone who’s seen this year’s Kong: Skull Island.

Synopsis: “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.”

Sally Hawkins (Dr. Vivienne Graham) and Ken Watanabe (Dr. Ishiro Serizawa) will be back, surely confirming the theme of this covert “crypto-zoological agency Monarch” with tons of new actors in addition to Brown:  Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton), Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel), Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Zhang Ziyi (The Grandmaster) and Randy Havens (Stranger Things).

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set for release on March 22nd, 2019
