When Gojira emerged from the murky depths of the Pacific Ocean, the radioactive beast quickly shot to the tip-top of Earth’s food chain. But it seems there’s a new pretender to the throne.
With Godzilla: King Of The Monsters falling into place at Legendary, Toho’s crown jewel is about to go up against his immense, three-headed nemesis: King Ghidorah. They’ve been at each other’s throats since as far back as 1964, but come 2019, Godzilla and Ghidorah will be projected onto the big screen – ditto for Mothra and Rodan – and O’Shea Jackson Jr. believes the world is not ready.
Collider caught up with the Straight Outta Compton breakout to discuss Michael Dougherty’s super-sized sequel, which will seemingly deliver a final battle for the ages. In fact, Jackson Jr. even goes so far as to claim that said scene is, frankly, unforgettable.
In the last scene between Godzilla and King Ghidorah, I promise you, you will never forget it, in your life. As a nerd, I am foaming at the mouth to get in the editing room…Godzilla will be the number 1 movie. The way that [Godzilla] and Ghidorah fight… man… Kong better bring some shit.

And by Kong, the actor is referring to Legendary’s planned Godzilla vs. Kong movie, which will bring the two titans together under the same roof in 2020.
But before we get swept up in what the future holds, Michael Dougherty and Co. are preparing for what is perhaps the biggest warm-up act in the history of cinema. Yes, the MonsterVerse is quickly coming to a head, and based on the following synopsis, the MUTOs of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla movie are small fry to what’s coming down the pipe.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.
When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
