We learned a lot from this year's Comic-Con about Legendary's plans for some epic monster movie action in the future, from the announcement of a 'King Kong' prequel with 'Skull Island' and the confirmation of 'Godzilla 2.' Max Borenstein has quickly become the studio's go-to writer for their tentpole projects, and the man who penned the first 'Godzilla' will now return to script the sequel.
'Godzilla 2' was announced almost immediately after the film opened earlier this summer. But, with director Gareth Edwards off directing one of the upcoming 'Star Wars' spinoffs, when would a 'Godzilla 2' even happen? Well, now we know the answer. Legendary Pictures has set a June 8, 2018 relea
Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.
In a move that surprised no one after the weekend box office report, 'Godzilla 2' is already in the works and we couldn't be more excited. Director Gareth Edwards' take on the iconic monster is one of the most beautiful and refreshing summer movies in a long time, bending over backwards to build tension and tease the the audience before unleashing a monster mash of a climax that has to be seen to be believed. Of course we want 'Godzilla 2.' We wanted a 'Godzilla 2' the moment the credits rolled.
Of course, there's one big important question: which monster(s) would Godzilla fight in the sequel?
