The Godzilla sequel has found another extremely noteworthy addition to the cast. Variety reports that Kyle Chandler has been tapped to join the cast of Godzilla: King of Monsters. He will reportedly play the father of Millie Bobby Brown's character in the much anticipated sequel.
It appears that Chandler's character will be central to the story, and that the sequel will take place through the perspective of this family. Variety also reported that the only cast member likely to return from the 2014 movie was Ken Watanabe.
Kyle Chandler's notable film credits include The Wolf of Wall Street, Super 8, and Zero Dark Thirty. He is also notable for his recurring roles in the television series Friday Night Lights and Bloodline.
Godzilla King: Monsters will release on Mar. 22, 2019. The film will be directed by Michael Dougherty, and written by Zach Shields. Stay tuned to Scified as more casting news breaks!

Not the most inspired casting, but he's quite the talent when used well. He'll be a solid addition. Glad to hear Watanabe is likely to return. I just hope they actually give him something to do that's center to the action this time.
I like it. He plays a very good every man, and is a likeable character actor. Jamaal, I was wondering the same thing about the design, seeing as it's a new director. I wouldn't mind if they tweaked it a bit. Looking forward to Dougherty's take.
Honestly was it ever confirmed in the last film that the Godzilla shown was the last of his kind? If not there could be 2 or 3 more still left. Can be used as a way to have a slightly different design.
Just having more Godzillas appear would be a cop-out and take away from the importance of Godzilla as a character in my opinion. I'm all for maybe showing flashbacks of other members of his kind or maybe having a juvenile in the vein of Minilla or Godzilla Junior appearing, but not just suddenly introducing more Godzillas that look slightly different just to reestablish Godzilla with a new design. If they really want to change Godzilla's design, they can just do it and not worry about explaining it, since Toho has done the same thing countless times in the past.
Since they're using the title "Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters" (which is great, IMO), a scene of Steve Martin-like on-the-scene-reporting might be a nice homage. Especially so if the design bares a definite resemblance to the 1954 version.
Just thinking out loud from over 700 and some odd days out.
"I wouldn't mind if they tweaked it a bit. Looking forward to Dougherty's take."
Me too. I'm starting to get more interested in the whole project. Two years can go pretty fast. With a new director, one would hope there will be a markedly different direction. I would like to see a Godzilla who doesn't allow the US Navy to escort him across the ocean. Scary is what I want to see. So it should be reflected in the design. With all those airborne giant monsters, the potential for monumental chaos is immense. I'm thinking King Ghidorah has to be a bad guy. And he should be huge, overwhelming.
@Jamaal - As much as I’d love to see that happen, I don’t see them changing his “character” that drastically. They’ve already established him as, if not an anti-hero, then certainly not a malicious monster. It would take real cojones to turn around and make him scary and/or bad. I’d love to see that classic military versus Godzilla scene, as opposed to him being shot at and basically ignoring the military altogether.
If we’re lucky enough to get to it, I envision he and Kong going at it initially, but then uniting against some common foe, a la Batman V Superman, with neither character necessarily being the antagonist, or “bad guy”.
Either way, I’m looking forward to this, and I already have my ticket purchased for Kong: Skull Island (7:30 pm, 3/9).
@Godzilla 2014 Himself: My sentiments, exactly. Godzilla should be a menace, malevolent. The Legendary take was good, almost Gamera-like, as he was here to 'restore balance.' But, with a new director, I would like to see a kaiju that is more scary and frightening.
@KoldWarKid62: An anti-hero Godzilla is great-we've seen it done-but I would just like to see him more unpredictable, more dangerous. There was a moment in Godzilla 2014 when Godzilla and Lieutenant Brody seemed to exchange glances. That kind of characterization went with the general tone of the film. But, personally, I would like to see a film, and, a Godzilla that is edgier, unpredictable, with moments of horror.
I hope Godzilla 2: The King of the Monstersis shocking and wild.
