Thanks to the success of “Godzilla vs Kong,” the feature film that saw the two legendary monsters clash would get a sequel. And while this one is currently being filmed, its synopsis has been revealed.

In March 2021, Warner Bros will unveil the fourth film in its MonsterVerse after Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla II: King of the Monsters. Postponed due to Covid, Godzilla vs Kong is released on the same day in US cinemas and on HBO Max. The film sees the two mythical monsters clash almost sixty years after their encounter in IshirĊ Honda’s King Kong vs Godzilla. Despite its release during a difficult period and simultaneously on HBO Max, the film was a great success in theatres.

Godzilla vs Kong took in over $468 million worldwide. Enough to push Warner Bros. to order a sequel to Adam Wingard’s film. It is currently being filmed with the same director at the helm. On the casting front, it was recently confirmed that Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry and Kaylee Hottle would reprise their roles as Ilene Andrews, Bernie Hays and Jia, respectively in Godzilla vs Kong 2. It is also known that Dan Stevens will play the new headliner of this film (besides the two monsters). The latter is best known for his role as Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey.

And after the news about the casting of Godzilla vs Kong 2, Warner Bros has just revealed the film’s synopsis, relayed by Collider. It says the two monsters must again join forces to stop a new enemy. And that this one promises to be particularly powerful. But the synopsis also promises to reveal more about the two monsters’ past. As well as that of Skull Island, the island from which Kong comes:

This new film follows the explosive confrontation between Godzilla and Kong with a new cinematic adventure. This new film follows the fierce fight between Godzilla and Kong with a new cinematic experience that will see the all-powerful Kong and the fearsome Godzilla face off together against a colossal, unknown threat lurking in our world that will endanger their existence – and ours. This epic new film will delve deeper into the stories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond while revealing the mythical battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and bind them to humanity forever.

The synopsis also suggests that some of the action will again occur in the Hollow Earth, introduced in the last film. So that’s quite a program for a feature film that promises to be ambitious. Whatever the case, we’ll have to be patient before discovering the result. Godzilla vs Kong 2 is scheduled for release on March 15, 2024.
