For a while it looked as if the so-called MonsterVerse about Godzilla and King Kong would not be continued on the big screen, but (only) in the streaming area, but since the end of March 2022 it is clear: » Godzilla Vs. Kong 2 » is coming. And as is usual with the MonsterVerse films, the human lead role is once again played by a celebrity actor.
As the US industry magazine Deadline reports, Dan Stevens will take on the leading role in «Godzilla Vs. Kong 2» . Stevens is known from series such as the historical hit «Downton Abbey» or the Marvel mindfuck «Legion», but he also played the beast in the live action film «Beauty and the Beast» or the leading role in the Netflix horror film «Apostle».

There is little or no information about Steven’s role and the story of «Godzilla Vs. Kong 2». Deadline only writes that the eponymous monsters should be the focus again and that they are preparing for their next duel.
However, many (including us at FILMSTARS) actually assume that «Godzilla Vs. Kong 2» will not be a direct sequel, but instead a «Son Of Kong» film will follow, which was also hinted at in «Godzilla Vs. Kong». becomes. That would also fit with the fact that a «Godzilla» series is planned. So it remains to be seen how things will continue.
