Legendary and Warner Bros. are setting dates for the upcoming Godzilla and King Kong franchise. Legendary released a statement saying “All-powerful monsters become towering heroes for a new generation, revealing a mythology that brings together Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species, both classic and new. Monarch, the human organization that uncovered Godzilla in the 2014 film, will expand their mission across multiple releases.”
They will begin with ‘Kong: Skull Island’ on March 10, 2017; ‘Godzilla 2’ on June 8, 2018 and then ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’, coming in 2020.
Legendary CEO Thomas Tull said “Audiences really responded to Godzilla. Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I’ve always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we’re pleased to be announcing that and more.”
