Godzilla vs. Kong stampeded its way to theatres in March 2021, but the story is not over. It is now announced that Warner Bros. will begin work on the movie’s sequel this year in Australia. Here’s everything we know so far about the project.

The movie is the fourth entrant to Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse, beginning with 2014’s Godzilla. It was followed up with Kong: Skull Island in 2017, and Godzilla: King of Monsters in 2019. Every movie was a success, the reimagining of this Japanese Kaiju became a hit with western audiences. However, the movie got released on HBO Max simultaneously, as that was Warner Brothers’ plan at the time. This led to Godzilla vs. Kong becoming the most pirated movie of 2021. The movie was delayed long enough, so this was the effective strategy, according to them.

Directed by Death Note director Adam Wingard, the movie saw the two titans battling it out. In the end, they united to fight against the man-made threat, MechaGodzilla.

Deadline reported that the sequel will begin later this year. Filming will take place in Queensland, Australia, the same place that the first film was made. It created huge economic boosts, and created employment opportunities for local film crews. We are yet to know the stars, as well as director for the sequel. That’s right, we are yet to see if Wingard will return for the sequel, even though he expressed his interest in the past.

It will be interesting to see the sequel setting, especially after Hollow Earth, a massive subterranean ecosystem got discovered in the previous film. It is the home of many of Earth’s titans, and there are many iconic creatures yet to come. Now that the production news has been announced, expect to hear information on the cast and crew soon enough.
