Godzilla Sequel Officially in the Works

Jason McDonald

Whether you loved it or not, there’s no denying that “Godzilla”  stomped into the weekend and laid waste to the box office competition.  So far the film looks to be earning a cool $93 million before the weekend is over.  Add in the international box office and the film is already over the $100 million mark.

So with financial success and generally positive reviews pouring in, it comes as no surprise that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have gone ahead and revealed to Deadline that a sequel is on the way.  Of course, this early on, I doubt they have any specifics for a sequel nailed down.  However, as Deadline points out, director Gareth Edwards has indicated that a sequel would follow a similar “restrained” presentation.  Meaning that the monsters wouldn’t be the center of attention.

Personally, I hope he eases up on that restraint as I felt that the movie could have used a lot more Kaiju action to compensate for the fairly dull human characters.  If he’s going to keep utilizing this method, then he really needs to spice up the characters and make them as compelling as Godzilla.

So what would you like to see in a Godzilla sequel?  Do you think it’s time to bring in the major Toho monsters like Rodan or even King Ghidorah? Or should they continue to make up new threats for Godzilla to fight? Let us know what you think.

        I want to see Monster Island again. Maybe appearences from Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and creation of MechaGodzilla. They need to keep Godzilla a force for good.

        I knew Altagate Godzilla was going to the biggest box office smash of the summer of 2014 and if it’s a sequel with the height of this one then it should it should be unstoppable to make like a third movie or fourth movie who Ray for Godzilla and congratulations on the triumphant return

        I’d like to see a scenario in which there’s a major global threat that only Godzilla can stop, so the US has to bring out Godzilla to stop this global disaster from happening, knowing full well that the US will cease to exist if they choose to bring Godzilla back. Of course it ends with the entire US completely wiped off the map but the rest of the world is safe.

        “A Pacific Rim crossover?”
        I should probably pretend I didn’t read that– for my health’s sake.

        Godzilla saves earth from rodan …Godzilla takes on Jurassic park and saves earth ..or maybe one was enough ..but anything with the words Pacific rim is an instant disaster ..that movie SUCKED big time .

        i just want more Godzilla screen time… not brief glimpses then a 5 minute fight at the end… I don’t mind the human interest side of a monster movie – but when a movie is titled ‘Godzilla’ i expect to see more of him – this movie should’ve been called M.U.T.O instead.

        some character development?

      17. David Brereton May 19, 2014 at 12:11 pm

        Perhaps something like Destroy all Monsters, would like to see some of the classic monsters used, Mothra or Gigan maybe, really enjoyed this movie so I just hope they dont fuck up the sequel
