Looks like San Diego Comic-Con attendees will have another thing to look forward to very soon. If you dug the recent Godzilla reboot and the even more recent Kong: Skull Island, this will come as good news to you. When asked whether or not Godzilla: King of the Monsters would be headed to San Diego Comic-Con for a Hall H panel, director Mike Dougherty responded with an unambiguous “yes.”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will act as the sequel to the 2014 film that kicked off the MonsterVerse that will soon culminate in Godzilla vs. Kong, which is set to be directed by Death Note director Adam Wingard. Dougherty’s background comes from horror films Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus, and as such, we expect to see more dark and horrific aspects to the story than in the previous Godzilla (though there were elements of that).

Returning to the franchise in the sequel are MONARCH scientists played by Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins, but apart from them, there will be an all-new gang of humans (thank goodness, no more boring soldier-man this time around). Rounding out the cast are Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Kyle Chandler, and Charles Dance.
