Godzilla Vs King Kong Movie Is A Step Closer After 'Director Confirmed'

Much like how the DC Universe and Marvel Cinematic Universe host our favourite superheroes, MonsterVerse houses two of the biggest movie creatures of all time.

The project is the collaboration between Warner Bros and Legendary Entertainment, who have both released the Godzilla and King Kong films in recent years.

The first installment was the 2014 Godzilla which looked to reboot the franchise after the iconic 1998 film.

It's actually the longest running movie franchise, with 29 films released since 1954.

It depends on who you ask but I grew up loving that late '90s version of Godzilla, so I'm going to say it's the best. The 2014 Godzilla stands at a height of 350 feet, however, making it the tallest in the franchise's history. Does biggest mean best? Up to you.

Audiences were also pleased with this year's reboot of the King Kong series. Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed the 2017 installment, which featured Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L Jackson, John Goodman and Brie Larson.

And, now, finally, it looks like we're going to see the two massive monsters go head-to-head.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Adam Wingard has been hired to direct the masterpiece, which is set for release in 2020.

He's been in charge of You're Next and Blair Bitch and will be joined by three of the writers from the Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla films.

If you can't wait until 2020 for another monster movie then rest assured, we're getting another Godzilla flick in two years. The film will star Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel).

Director for the 2014 Godzilla movie, Gareth Edwards, wanted the movie to be a stand alone and have a definitive ending with no possibility for a sequel. But when the movie smashed it at the box office, Legendary gave the go ahead for the second installment with the possibility of a third.

I'm sure the showdown in 2020 will be very impressive.
