Godzilla Vs. Kong was easily the biggest movie to arrive thanks to Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse and a sequel is on the way. With the film revealing that it will be hitting theaters in March 2024, filming has begun in Australia for the sequel and a new video gives us a brief glimpse into Godzilla's return. With Godzilla and the Titans also set to return as a part of the upcoming AppleTV+ MonsterVerse series, it's a good time to be a kaiju fan.
In the first Godzilla Vs. Kong film, the large primate was taken from Skull Island in order to lead a group of scientists to the "Hollow Earth", the birthplace of many of the titans that were wandering the Earth within the MonsterVerse. Unfortunately for Kong, the lizard king wasn't keen on any potential competition for his crown, and the two popular beasts tangled with one another a number of times throughout the film. Ultimately, Godzilla was able to stand as the victor but it seems as though a rematch is nigh and it should be interesting to see if the ruler of Skull Island will be able to win during this sequel film.
7News Brisbane shared a clip of the Godzilla Vs. Kong sequel being filmed, with a number of beachgoers seemingly running scared from Godzilla emerging from the ocean depths, which is usually a normal thing for the king of the monsters to do during his introductions in film:

While details about the story of the sequel are few and far between at this point, the film has confirmed that the director of the original crossover, Adam Wingard, would be returning to directing duties. On top of Wingard's return, the film is also set to see actor Dan Stevens in the leading role, with fans perhaps remembering Stevens' from his roles in FX's Legion and Disney's Beauty And The Beast. As it stands, the movie hasn't confirmed any new titans entering the fray but there are certainly more than a few to choose from.
Do you think it's possible for Kong to beat Godzilla in the upcoming sequel? What new giant monsters do you hope to see arrive in the next movie in Legendary's MonsterVerse?
