“Godzilla vs Kong 2” Synopsis Reveals Epic Continuation of Monster Fight

We’re inching closer to round two of the most epic monster brawl ever. Warner Bros. has revealed the synopsis for their Godzilla vs. Kong sequel (still untitled), which will find our two colossal competitors partnering up to fight against an even greater threat than each other.

The end of the original Godzilla vs. Kong gave us a glimpse of what such a partnership might look like when Godzilla and Kong had to unite to take on the fearsome metallic city-stomper MechaGodzilla. The brief, potent team they created gave us a pretty big hint that the sequel would likely focus on the two Titans facing down an even greater threat, and the synopsis for the sequel proves it. Here it is:

This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

This “colossal undiscovered threat” will take up plenty of their attention and energies, but it’s not like Godzilla and Kong are buddies. In the first film, after putting up a ferocious fight, Kong was just about bested by Godzilla, with the King of Monsters beating him into submission and, had he wanted, moments away from ending Kong’s reign. Yet Godzilla didn’t go for the kill, as he sensed the real threat wasn’t Kong but the metallic monstrosity coming their way. So our question is, even with this new threat, might Godzilla and Kong require a rematch themselves?

Godzilla vs. Kong also hinted at a time when humans and Titans coexisted in Hollow Earth, and the mysteries of that hidden kingdom, and the connection between the Titans and humanity, will be further explored in the sequel. Adam Wingard returns to direct the sequel, working off a script from his Godzilla vs. Kong writer Terry Rossio, Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), and Simon Barret (You’re Next.) Returning cast members include Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kayle Hottle. Newcomers include Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House.
