“This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own,” reads the official Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire synopsis. “The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.”

The fifth installment in the MonsterVerse, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire sees director Adam Wingard reunite with The Guest star Dan Stevens, who will take over as the main protagonist. The supporting cast includes Rebecca Hall as Dr. Ilene Andrews, Brian Tyree Henry as Bernie Hayes, Kaylee Hottle as Jia, with Fala Chen (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Alex Ferns (The Batman), and Rachel House (The Portable Door) set to join the franchise.

As well as uniting once again with Kong, Godzilla will also feature in the upcoming small-screen MonsterVerse outing Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which sees Kurt Russell and his son Wyatt Russell playing the same character across decades. Monarch: Legacy of Monsters is expected to be released later this year on Apple TV+.
