Godzilla vs Kong 2: Release date, cast, plot & more

Kong Kong punches Godzilla.Warner Bros.

A new movie in the Monsterverse is coming, and now we know the Godzilla vs Kong sequel’s title, as well as details of plot, cast, and release date.

We’ve nearly had 10 years of the Monsterverse. This shared universe kicked off with Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla in 2014. Which was followed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island in 2017, Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, and Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong in 2021.

Between them those four films have grossed nearly $2 billion at the global box office, so it’s no surprise that a fifth film is currently in production, with principal photography taking place in Queensland, Australia.
