We received news for two famous "monsters" today at SDCC. In addition to an official announcement for Godzilla 2, we got word that Legendary Pictures is looking to revive the King Kong franchise and offered some test footage of Skull Island.
Director Gareth Evans will be returning for Godzilla 2 and confirmed that in the sequel we will see Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Rodan. Legendary CEO Thomas Tull showed teaser footage including each of the rivals as classified figures. Evans will begin on Godzilla 2 after he completes his Star Wars spin-off film.
As far as King Kong goes, apparently a new version of Skull Island is being planned for a 2016 release. Legendary is now in equal share of the rights for these films after being absorbed by Universal. However, SDCC guests were somewhat disappointed as they assumed the footage shown was going to be a teaser for Jurassic World. The last adaptation of King Kong was Peter Jackson's take on the character back in 2005.
