Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures confirmed today via press release that production on Michael Dougherty’s tentatively titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters is officially underway in Atlanta.

Accompanying this announcement is the first official plot synopsis released for the film:

“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.”

While fans were critical of Gareth Edward’s Godzilla for being too slow and not showcasing the titular monster or his foes enough, this follow-up appears to be rectifying that mistake. Indeed, this sequel sounds like an all out monster mash, and there’s little doubt that fans of the franchise will be thrilled to hear that Godzilla’s most iconic villains will be showing up on the big screen once again. Of course, this was hinted at during the post-credits scene of Kong: Skull Island for those who stuck around to watch it, but it’s nice to have official confirmation nonetheless.


Along with this synopsis, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures also announced its full cast list, which stars: Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Stranger Things breakout star Millie Bobby Brown, and Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins reprising their roles from Godzilla. The cast also includes: Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.

Godzilla 2, which is set to stomp into theaters on March 22, 2019, is the next installment in the “cinematic MonsterVerse” which already includes Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, and will be followed by Godzilla vs. Kong on May 22nd, 2020.
