Legendary have just put out a press release which has revealed the official title for their highly anticipated upcoming Godzilla (2014) sequel! According to the release, Godzilla 2 will be titled Godzilla: King of Monsters!

Best known for his work as Executive Producer on such films as Warner Bros’ The Judge and Watchmen, as well as the recently released Jack Reacher: Never Go Back from Paramount, Gains’ responsibilities will include overseeing production of Legendary’s feature film slate including such highly anticipated projects as Pacific Rim: Uprising, Pokemon’s Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of Monsters. Gains will also work closely with the post-production team insuring that the filmmaker’s vision remains intact through production to final distribution.

The title is quite fitting considering Legendary plan to introduce a number of iconic Toho monsters for the sequel; Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah being the three previously teased at Legendary's 2014 Comic-Con presentation. Set for a March 22nd, 2019 release date Godzilla: King of Monsters does not currently have a director following Gareth Edwards' departure.

Godzilla: King of Monsters will act as a sequel to both Godzilla (2014) as well as Kong: Skull Island and will act as a prequel to 2020's Godzilla vs. Kong!

Great news... But was inspecting with the title "Monster Zero" as the pun for ground zero for the four kaijus they are going to cause, no offense.

BaragonMember339 XPDec-14-2016 1:58 PM

I think that title tells me.. time for a new title. Come on man.. that is so lame to recycle a 1956 title from the raymond burr version.. so what are we gonna get... Godzilla only.. with no other kaiju ?? or perhaps a history lesson and his initial awakening.. all I know is.. that title only worked for 56 movie.. but today's modern audience.. may want something cooler sounding.. like GODZILLA: DOMINION .. or GODZILLA: MODERN AGE RAGE (LOL) no.. not that one.. but how about.. GODZILLA: AGE OF DEVASTATION .

Something Real

An excellent title! :)

GiganAdmin4958 XPDec-14-2016 3:40 PM

Great title. I was hoping we'd get some "Godzilla vs." throwback titles, but I suppose they're saving that for Godzilla vs. Kong. I think it would have been better had it only been titled King of the Monsters, but this will do. And makes sense as he'll be sharing the screen with many other imposing monsters.

I'm sorry, but literally every title you suggested reeks of the mindless, self-indulgent lack of integrity that plagues Michael Bay's movies. "Age of Devastation"? Really? How many "age of" movies have we had now? Age of Extinction? Age of Ultron? I'm glad Legendary is leaving that garbage behind and bringing back something retro!


SpaceGodzillaAdmin22228 XPDec-14-2016 5:12 PM

I have to agree, I quite enjoy this title selection. It is very retro and very indicative of what we can expect from its plot. Godzilla is going to lay a beat down on some imposing Monsters and set the stage as King for his match with THE other King, Kong. I quite like it! Also, leaving out the "the" is no hinderence either imo, grammatically it might look off, but for a title, it's perfect.


TitanosaurusMember934 XPDec-14-2016 5:32 PM

I'm fine with this title. 


BaragonMember425 XPDec-14-2016 6:40 PM

Kind of figured this with Batman getting movies like "The Dark Knight" and Superman getting "Man of Steel"


TitanosaurusMember926 XPDec-14-2016 7:00 PM

I agree with Gman2887. There is nothing wrong with a little throwback to the classics. It is because Godzilla is king of the monsters that we must be reminded WHY he is King. This title gives the impression that Godzilla will once again prove he is worthy of the throne that has been his birthright since 1954. It is likely that due to the number of other Kaiju in this film that Godzilla will be stronger than when he fought the Muto's.


SpaceGodzillaAdmin22228 XPDec-14-2016 7:06 PM

Good question! I assume he will have gained some strength and size perhaps. I'm also curious how his look might evolve for the next one, hopefully not too much as I was a big fan of his 2014 design.

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4958 XPDec-14-2016 7:10 PM

I don't think he'll be stronger since he fought the MUTOs. There's no real reason for it. I think he'll simply be older and even more overwhelmed by monsters who should be stronger and more vicious than the MUTOs. Overcoming them despite any disadvantages would solidify his title as "Kong of Monsters" more effectively than if he got some contrived power boost.


SpaceGodzillaAdmin22228 XPDec-15-2016 6:55 AM

True, although he had a hard enough time with the MUTOs, I wonder how he will manage facing Ghidorah... Rodan and Mothra I'm sure G can handle but Ghidorah has always been his most challenging opponent. I wonder if Mothra and Rodan will team up with Godzilla after all.

So Cool That This Amayzing Cinemasterpiece Will Bee Coming Out On Mai 27th Birthday ^_^


BaragonMember339 XPDec-15-2016 3:09 PM

@Gman2887 Point taken.. but my opinion stands on the title. They started with Godzilla to start with as the Title to the Edwards film.. so adding King of the monsters to the sequel title... in my opinion.. kind of reeks of desperation.. kind of a fan grab.. rather than a general audience grab... and the original 54 G (Jap) and G king of monsters (Hollywood).. were the same movie.. and then after the fact.. Toho released a second G film. My point is.. King Of the monsters could work.. if Skull Island and KING KONG weren't on the menu for Legendary. So you would have KK vs G-KOM.. There can only be One King of The monsters.. So who would it be? Kong or Godzilla.

Mothra LarvaeMember9 XPDec-15-2016 9:21 PM

@RR44 I can understand where you're coming from. However, Godzilla is known to many American viewers who have never seen a Toho Godzilla film before, includingknowledge of his status as "King of the Monsters". It's just common knowledge at this point.

And to add to that, any title that begins with "Age" or something of the sorts seems aligned towards more action-oriented movies, which Godzilla is not. The sequel will most likely have a very serious undertone, and the title should convey that.


TitanosaurusMember926 XPDec-16-2016 7:58 AM

@Gman2887, you called him, "Kong of Monsters" instead of "King of Monsters." And I like your idea. While I would like to see the 2014 Godzilla get stronger, the idea that Godzilla's age is putting him at disadvantage is kinda intriguing. He is, after all, millions of years old.


TitanosaurusMember926 XPDec-16-2016 8:04 AM

@Chris, I think they will. Since Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah are the only monsters we can confirm alongside Godzilla, this may lead towards what would be considered a remake of "Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster," in which Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan all teamed up to defeat King Ghidorah. I can't see Mothra joining forces with Ghidorah. It was done in GMK but it was rather annoying when you look at the characters themselves. Mothra, the peaceful guardian of the Earth and Ghidorah, the King of Terror. They would be natural enemies. Sure, in GMK they made Ghidorah good and Godzilla bad, But Ghidorah just isn't a good monster. He has been cemented as one of Godzilla's most formidable and evil enemies. If Ghidorah and Mothra were to work together, it just wouldn't due the characters justice. (Don't get me wrong, GMK was a good movie. I only didn't like that King Ghidorah wasn't evil)


TitanosaurusMember729 XPDec-16-2016 12:03 PM

Honestly, I could see Rodan working alongside King Ghidorah more than Mothra. Though, honestly, it feels like it'll end up with Rodan being, at first, an opponent of Godzilla due to a territorial dispute. This is the alpha conflict, and can be used to showcase Rodan as a better flying fighter than the male M.U.T.O., but ultimately not as powerful as Godzilla.

Mothra could come in later, acting as a warning of King Ghidorah, and has various abilities. Not as agile as Rodan or as strong as Godzilla, but more unpredictable.

King Ghidorah could perhaps combine all three of the aspects I highlighted: agility, strength, and unpredictability. This set-up would test all three opposing monsters' abilities, and force them to team up to take on a foe that matches them in their strongest areas and is superior to them in the other aspects.


BaragonMember339 XPDec-16-2016 8:50 PM

perhaps I'm looking at this the wrong way.. maybe multiple kaiju will be featured in the sequel.. and Godzilla kicks all their butts.. or.. as a King.. leads a couple of them to victory over a foe. Either way.. I'm getting excited for it.. even though the title is so so with me. Here's an idea for a title.. Godzilla Reigns. as in Reign of the King.. hmm..eh.. what about that one ? All I know is.. we will get 2 kings.. Kong being the other.

Kaiju Kong

Mothra LarvaeMember53 XPJan-16-2017 8:15 AM

I know they secured the rights to several other Kaiju monsters. Granted Gamera is owned by another job , but I wish they got the rights. Can you image Godzilla, Gamera & Kong all battling for the title "King of Monsters"
