With the tagline "Let Them Fight," expect the sequel to be even more of a kaiju throwdown.
After the new Godzilla took in almost $39 million in its opening weekend earlier this summer, the chances of us seeing another entry in the rebooted monster series was pretty strong. Today, at the Legendary Pictures panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was confirmed that a sequel is currently in the works, with Gareth Edwards returning to direct.
The panel presented a brief clip, featuring Godzilla roaring over San Francisco Bay, with the tag line "Let Them Fight" appearing at the end of a reel of archival-style footage. Confirmed to appear alongside the King of the Monsters are fellow kaiju Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
According to a post by Entertainment Weekly , Edwards said he would be turning his attention to the sequel after he wraps up work on his Star Wars spin-off film.
