GODZILLA 2 Announced at Comic-Con; Will Feature Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah

Godzilla was announced at Comic-Con a few years ago.  The teaser was unannounced, but when we heard the King of the Monsters’ might roar, it brought the house down.  The film finally came out this summer, and it was a huge hit.  Soon after, a sequel was announced.  The question then became what other monsters we would see.  Godzilla has a tremendous rogues’ gallery, and none of them were featured in the first movie.  Now it was time to reward the fans with not just a “Thank you” but with a taste of what’s next.

Hit the jump for more about the Godzilla 2 monsters.

godzilla 2Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull took the stage, and then introduced a video message from Gareth Edwards.  Edwards said he wished he could be with us, but he was directing the rebuilding of the Golden Gate Bridge, and also working on an independent sci-fi movie called Star Wars something-or-other.  However, he did want to directly say “Thank You” to the fans since sometimes these journeys really do begin in Hall H.

And so does the next step in that journey.  We were then showed a new piece of “Classified Monarch Footage”.  The teaser is made to look like it was put together in the 1960s and has audio of John F. Kennedy talking about threats and dangers.  Then text comes on the screen saying that there was one more secret: “There were others.”  Then we get a shadow of a pterodactyl:

“CODENAME: RODAN”

Then we get an extreme close-up of a giant moth creature:

“CODENAME: MOTHRA”

Then a silhouette and quick cuts around a dragon figure:

“CODENAME: GHIDORAH”

And then we get the text: “THREAT ASSESSMENT: CONFLICT INEVITABLE.”  Followed by: “LET THEM FIGHT.”

Once again, Godzilla brought the house down.  Shortly after the panel ended Legendary told us:

“Edwards will direct the sequel to GODZILLA after he finishes his installment in the expanded STAR WARS franchise.”

More info as we get it.

    Godzilla 2 is now my most anticipated film.

  • Archer

    MOTHRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    By far my favorite movie monster ever! So excited to see it on screen again.

    I loved this first reboot movie, even if some whiners here did not.

    • Leo Spaceman

      I would have probably enjoyed it more if Godzilla was more than just a secondary character. I absolutely believe that they nailed down what Godzilla is as a giant lizard that comes to beat the S**t out of other giant bugs and then just goes home when the job is done, but that is a very one dimensional character. To add tension and drama they brought in humans who planted a bomb and then had to stop the bomb. For me the human element just did not work.

      And now they say they are doing three new evil monsters are getting added to the mix. This is the first time I have ever seen people say three villains is just what the movie needs. I guess that makes sense because its just Godzilla fighting other monsters to the death which doesn’t need a whole lot of substance so they can have Godzilla defeat one monster in the first twenty minutes then have the build up to the huge three way brawl

      • Agent777

        Yeah, Mothra and Rodan are soooooo evil.

        I don’t think there has ever been a film with Godzilla, Mothra, Rodah and Ghidorah before. Like, never…. Totally hella never.

      • Peps Llamas

        Godzilla: Final Wars. It has the 1998 Godzilla too.

      • Shawn Patrick

        There has…twice at least that I can think of. The FIRST ever appearance of Ghidorah in “Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster,” also featured Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra. Then as already stated, “Final Wars.”

      • Peps Llamas

        If you saw the old Godzilla movies starting with the very first one, then you’ll know that they only tease Godzilla for the next 45 minutes or so and basically ends with the 3rd part destroying everything in it’s path so yeah, no complaints for the reboot cause it’s very very loyal to it’s origins. And by the way, Mothra is known as an ally of Godzilla so yeah we’ll have a tag team action right here.:)

      • Doug

        Except the original Godzilla was a good movie.

      • Peps Llamas

        To each his own.:)

      If by “whiner” you mean somebody that grew out of their Underoos decades ago? That’s me in spades.

      Enjoy your CGI crapfests and the endless sequels!

      • Kevin Rianto

        But the very reason why Godzilla wasn’t in the majority of the scenes in the movie is because Gareth Edwards didn’t like films which is overdosed with CGI special effects, so saying that the movie is a CGIfest is not exactly true actually. Also there will only be 3 movies (so far…) so its not exactly suffering from endless sequels.

  • pwizo

    aw snap…

  • Brian James

    I will believe this a lot more in the future. What bothers me is this years and years of waiting.

    • MJ

      Yea, because they’ve only managed to make about 30 GodZ movies in the past 60 years…why can’t the ramp up the pace…LOL

      • Brian James

        Now you are confusing Toho output with 150 million dollar Hollywood fare. LOL right back at you. It takes more time to put post production on 15 effects shots in the new G film than it does to crank out every Millenium series flick in a row!

  • Oni

    they going to add the japanese girls singing the mothra song too?!

    • RiddleThemThis

      If there’s not a duo of Japanese fairies singing to Mothra, then I don’t know what the purpose of seeing the movie would be.

  • Grayden

    More monster action!

  • Guest

    Aren’t these guy already in Superman v Batman?

  • Old Soldier

    C’mon folks, save some monsters for #3 and 4.

  • Yurine

    King Ghidorah for the win.

  • appolox

    BRILLIIIIIAAAAAAAAANNNNNTTT

  • MCP

    I hope that they toss in an Easter egg to Mystery Science Theater 3000 in the next one somehow.

    “Oh! These stairs..!”

        I have come here to chew sushi and kick butt, and I’m all out of sushi!

  • Steven

    Yep and you’ll see Godzilla for another 5 secs in the sequel I bet.

    • Tom.

      That doesn’t sound like a bad thing in a sequel that’ll feature 3 other monsters.

    To clear things up for some people, Toho has been in the “Shared cinematic universe” buisness before the Avengers was even a comic.

    “Edwards will direct the sequel…”

    Ugh. Not excited.

  • Person

    Hopefully having this many new monsters means we’ll have to spend less time with those puny annoying humans…
