Legendary Pictures announced at San Diego Comic Con that they plan on expanding their universe of creatures. They revealed that a "King Kong" prequel is on the way and they confirmed a "Godzilla 2" would also be coming. The rebooted first film starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. Now a release date has been set for the return of the anti-hero.
"Godzilla 2" will hit AMC Theatres on June 8th, 2018. Director Gareth Edwards, who helmed the first film, is returning for the sequel. The reason the release date is several years away is most likely due to Edwards directing a "Star Wars" spin-off film that was announced a couple of months ago. Big things on the horizon for Edwards.
Fans were excited to learn that the world's most famous monster will be facing the likes of Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah in the sequel. Edwards chose to focus much more on the characters and their development, opposed to just having Godzilla engaging in some battles, which many fans were mixed about. It sounds like there will be no shortage of action in the sequel and they are capitalizing on a prime Summer release date.
