As part of the Legendary Pictures panel in Hall H as this yearâ€™s San Diego Comic-Con, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards via a taped video message near the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, CA, thanked all the fans for going to the film, and confirmed that because of the success of the rebooted Japanese behemoth franchise, there will be a second installment in the works.
An exclusive clip was shown as well, which resembled an old top secret Governmental film, replete with classic footage from the era the original Godzilla came out in the 1950s, and narrated by a John F. Kennedy soundalike, in which the classic thrillers of flight Rodan, Ghidorah, and Mothra take to the skies for what looks to be a bang-up film.
What it all means, is that the Godzilla franchise is looking to reboot not only its terrifying titular character, which it did to great effect earlier this year, but also some of its famous monsters, which will be seen in Godzilla 2.
We should point out that in the video message Edwards sent, where he jokes about being in San Francisco to help rebuild the city after the events of Godzilla, he mentions that while he will be working on the sequel, he’s also doing a “small sci-fi film” — this, of course, refers to one of the Star Wars spin-off movies he’s directing.
Godzilla himself then makes a cameo in the video message, prompting Edwards to say that he’s not going to rebuild the city all over again.
