Godzilla 2 synopsis confirms kaijus Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah

As Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse continues on from the release of KONG: SKULL ISLAND, we've just received some awesome news that finds Godzilla battling some of the most popular kaiju in his larger-than-life pantheon of monster antagonists.

Directed by TRICK 'R TREAT and KRAMPUS helmer Michael Dougherty, Godzilla's newest stomp-tastic outing begins its principal photography today, and will star Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown in her feature debut, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi.

As the plot to the new films unfolds, audience members will follow 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.

With filming going down in Atlanta, Georgia, Dougherty will direct based off of a script that he and Zach Shields wrote together. The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Personally, I can't wait to see the updated versions of Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah up on the big screen. While Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA underwhelmed to an extent, I'm still more than ready to find out what Dougherty has cooked up for his turn with one of history's greatest movie monsters.

GODZILLA 2 will stomp into theaters on March 22, 2019.

Extra Tidbit: While the next Godzilla installment was pegged as being called GODZILLA: GOD OF MONSTERS, new press releases are no longer referring to the project by that title. This indicates that a title change may come any day now. What would you have the movie be called? Let us know in the comments section below.
