We already know that Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King of the Monsters will bring Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah to Legendary's MonsterVerse and a recent TV spot teased a whopping seventeen monsters exist in the film, and at Monsterpalooza this past weekend, Dougherty confirmed that we will be seeing other monsters!
He even notes that some of them will be original Kaiju!
“Yes, [there are other Kaiju in the movie],” Dougherty told the crowd during his Q&A. “Not other Toho licensed creatures, but some original new ones. Yeah.”
“We’ve expanded the ecosystem a little bit,” he added.

The sequel takes place five years after the first film.
"The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance."
Directed by Michael Dougherty from a script by Zach Shields (Krampus, Trick 'r Treat), the film stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds and Zhang Ziyi.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on May 31st.
