One can’t really compare Legendary Entertainment’s “Monsterverse” to the success of Marvel’s MCU—at least not yet—but say what you will, you can at least give it one specific bit of praise: At least it’s managed to both entertain and turn a profit more consistently than DC’s superhero films. So in the world of the “shared universe,” it has someone else to point and sneer at.
Today, we have received news that the Monsterverse’s fourth film, Godzilla vs. Kong, will reportedly begin filming this year, in late 2018. That film, shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, would wrap up in early 2019 and receive a 2020 release date, which means it’s still a ways away. After all, we still have Godzilla: King of The Monsters to look forward to first, director Michael Dougherty’s sequel to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 Godzilla reboot. That film, which has wrapped filming, is scheduled for March of 2019.
