Following the release of the highly anticipated Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Entertainment’s will continue their Monsterverse with Godzilla vs. Kong.

"In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages.
