Adam Wingard’s plans for Godzilla vs.
Kong are huge.
We’re talking “multiple giant monsters” huge.
Wingard revealed that the movie will take place in the present day, after the events of Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

You have to wait all the way until the very end of the credits of Kong: Skull Island to catch the tease for the franchise's upcoming movies.
And yet, even those who did stay until the very end might not have understood what they were being show.
Let's break down the footage, and what it all means.
Kong: Skull Island is part of a larger cinematic universe that is developing over at Legendary and Warner Bros.
The "Monarch" references tie this new movie to Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla movie.
And it starts the ball rolling for two movies that have been announced, but have yet to go into production: Godzilla 2 (due on March 22, 2019); and King Kong vs.
With this revelation comes a number of questions.
WHEN will these sequels take place? Gareth Edwards' Godzilla was a modern-day thriller, while Kong; Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts consciously set his story in the 1970s, meaning that we have a young Kong (who still towers over us at roughly 100 feet in height). Godzilla 2, we thought, would build off of Edwards' movie.
But maybe it, too, will be set in the past -- somehow connecting the mega-monster face off that the studios have planned for 2020.
Fans can expect there to be a definitive winner, but the two iconic monsters will have to contend with threats besides each other.
“We have a couple characters from Godzilla 2 in ours, but it’ll be interesting to see how Kong has fared over the years,” Wingard said.
“You see him in that film and he’s just constantly under attack.
Things are going wrong and there’s probably been lots of human intervention since then.
It’ll be interesting to see a more rugged, a bit more aged Kong in this film.”
He could be talking about some of the human characters, but it seems more likely that Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah might make it to the next movie.
Wingard previously told ScreenCrush the film will be a “massive monster brawl movie,” with lots of monsters “going crazy on each other.”
It sounds like the film is shaping up to be one of the biggest giant monster films, and that’s saying something.
We’ll find out when Godzilla vs.
Kong hits theaters on May 22, 2020.
That movie will be preceded by Godzilla: King of the Monsters on March 22, 2019.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters 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.
