In 2014 the US of A was reintroduced to one of the most iconic characters to not come from our native land: Godzilla. This giant lizard creature has been stealing hearts (figuratively) for decades and because of this movie he’s come back into the limelight. That movie made $200 million domestically on a $160 million budget, so it did pretty well for itself. Definitely well enough to warrant a sequel and a crossover with another wonder of the world, King Kong. Now Godzilla 2 and Godzilla vs Kong are fast approaching, but it seems Godzilla 2 has hit a bit of a roadblock.
Gareth Edwards, director of the 2014 film, has left the project. It is currently unclear why he is no longer directing the sequel, but this isn’t a total disaster. Universal recently moved the movie back about 9 months, and now we can see why. But we still have plenty of time to find a new director and create a great story that also helps set up Godzilla vs Kong.
