Godzilla Vs. Kong, Godzilla 2 Get New Release Dates, Green Lantern Corps Moved


Godzilla 2 is moving from June 8, 2018 to March 22, 2019, Warner Bros. announced Tuesday. Godzilla 2 had been holding the same date as Transformers 6 from Paramount, one of the films that is coming out of Paramount's star-studded Transformers writers room.

Godzilla vs. Kong also got its first release date, May 29, 2020. Setting it only a hair over a year past Godzilla 2 seems to be a show of faith in both films, and the franchise-building they're doing with them.

Meanwhile, WB's date-shifting also saw a technically untitled DC Comics-based movie go from June 19, 2020 to about a month later, July 24, 2020, which is widely believed to be Green Lantern Corps. That puts it two weeks after a Marvel movie instead of three weeks before one. The new placement makes it the last currently-held release date for a big-budget franchise film of that summer, and is on a wide-open date.


Lastly, an untitled "WB Event Film" was announced for December 25, 2018, which will got head-to-head with a Disney film assumed to be a live-action fairy tale, and Sony's animated Spider-Man movie is in direct competition opening December 21 of that year, as well.
