Godzilla 2 easter egg

Director Michael Dougherty is hard at work directing Godzilla 2, the next movie in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s MonsterVerse. But while this film will set up an eventual conflict between two cinematic titans in 2020’s Godzilla vs. Kong, it will first turn to villains of the past and feature battles between Godzilla and iconic characters like Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah.

Godzilla 2 starts filming

Back in December, Legendary Pictures put out a press release declaring that the title of Godzilla 2 was Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
