While the Godzilla reboot was mostly met with a very positive response, some criticised a lack of action. However, it sounds like the iconic monster will very much be the focus in the sequel as you can see from the Tweets below. As well as confirming that Gareth Edwards will return to direct the follow-up, a teaser played by Legendary Pictures revealed a number of other monsters who will be joining him. Regardless of whether you're a fan of the older movies, almost all of these names should be at least a little familiar and Godzilla will definitely have his hands (?) full whenever the movie is released. How do you guys feel about this news? Sound off below!

Godzilla is [frick]ing trash but still not as bad that horrible imposter of a spiderman movie

awesome!!
BasedThanos - 7/26/2014, 12:43 PM
OMFG YES!!! That's what I've been saying Classic Toho monsters in the sequel is the way to go!
Genaro - 7/26/2014, 12:43 PM
No I will not get hyped, too end up being disappointed again.
charlie2094 - 7/26/2014, 12:43 PM
Good stuff, he did a good job with the first!

Enjoyed the first film, despite it's many flaws, excited to see where they take this. Not too familiar with those other monsters, but a quick Google told me all I need to know. Should be awesome :D

Super-Excited! Loved 'Godzilla 2014'

Would've liked Godzilla to have been a standalone movie for once, but I guess that was unrealistic to expect with the way that studios do business these days. It's a good sign that Edwards is coming back though, and hopefully he can improve even more on the first film (which was already pretty great, IMO).
typicalfanboy - 7/26/2014, 12:43 PM
godzilla. he's the monster we deserve but not the one we need right now.
DrDoom - 7/26/2014, 12:44 PM
Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah all in the sequel?



DaVinci31 - 7/26/2014, 12:46 PM
King Ghidorah FTW

ALegendaryPanda - 7/26/2014, 12:46 PM
I loved the first movie and this just sounds EPIC!!
SuperDude001 - 7/26/2014, 12:46 PM
Great Edwards is back...but from the way the first film set things, I really don't understand how a second film could have an attraction...like what just Godzilla Vs more monsters in the city, wow...
KingOnslaught - 7/26/2014, 12:47 PM
DAMN!!!!!

Godzilla 2 is going to be packed!!!
questionhound - 7/26/2014, 12:48 PM
Finally going to see some Kaiju beatdowns!!!! Focus less on the humans now that we kinda know Godzilla's reason for existing. He exists as an apex predator that eats all the other [frick]ing kaiju! Glad they're introducing Rodan and Mothra. Hopefully they become allies in the end to take down Ghidora
BasedThanos - 7/26/2014, 12:49 PM
With all of these classic monsters in Godzilla 2, there better be a LOT MORE ACTION! No more cutting away to something else, full on monster brawl.
DeusExSponge - 7/26/2014, 12:50 PM
Interesting, speaking of Godzilla I haven't seen it yet and is it like Man of Steel and Amazing Spider-Man where I have to watch it to find out if I like it or not?
Spidey91 - 7/26/2014, 12:50 PM
ok, so they went from teasing in the first one to a full blown monster rumble in the second one...works for me! (still liked the first one thou)
TChalla - 7/26/2014, 12:51 PM
@JoshWilding They showed a teaser video??
Inhuman - 7/26/2014, 12:51 PM
YESSSSSSSSS
TheRealMaxCady - 7/26/2014, 12:51 PM
Rodan! Mothra! King Ghidorah!

Facade - 7/26/2014, 12:52 PM
King Ghidorah [frick] YEAH!

SuperDude001 - 7/26/2014, 12:53 PM
@TheCaptain Do you really need a two hour movie of just monsters fighting? You do sorta need to cut away for ya know, the plot.
MFDOOM - 7/26/2014, 12:53 PM
Yes! So thrilled to hear the additions from Monster Island.
SauronsBANE - 7/26/2014, 12:54 PM
"...is it like Man of Steel and Amazing Spider-Man where I have to watch it to find out if I like it or not?"

I'd say it's like ANY movie. I mean, don't you need to actually watch ANY movie to find out if you like it or not? Why is Man of Steel and TASM any different, and why would Godzilla be any different? I genuinely don't understand that question haha.

This Franchise is off to an Excellent start! LOVED the first Film!

Favorite Films so far this year:

1.) Captain America: TWS
2.) Godzilla
3.) X-Men Days of Future Past

But I think Guardians might take the top spot after I saw that scene with Ronan, Thanos, Nebula and The Other...EPIC!
Mike89 - 7/26/2014, 12:55 PM
Rodan? Mothra? and King Ghidorah? all in one movie?!

Dayum.
