The epic battle will continue in Legendary Pictures' Monsterverse follow-up to the explosive showdown in Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence...and our own.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire promises to delve further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

Today, we have some brand new stills from the movie featuring its human characters along with two magazine covers highlighting the titular Kaijus (via SFFGazette.com).

Godzilla and Kong's unlikely team-up is shaping up to be a bonkers ride for fans of the Monsterverse, something which was evident from the recently released trailer. You can relive that sneak peek in the player below. 

"One of the incredible things about Godzilla is that the character has existed in so many different tones and interpretations in the Toho films," director Adam Wingard tells the publication. "I’m a huge fan of the whole spectrum, and I’ve always really enjoyed the late-Shōwa era. There are so many big ideas and they have such epic fun with these larger-than-life characters."

"In Godzilla vs. Kong, we paid homage to that epic tradition, including a handful of Easter eggs for the hardcore fans, and while I don’t want to give anything away, we definitely work in a few things for the Toho fans in the new film as well, so keep your eyes open!"

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire stars returning Godzilla vs. Kong actors Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle alongside Dan Stevens (Legion), Alex Ferns (The Batman), and Fala Chen (Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings).

The screenplay is by Terry Rossio (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Simon Barrett (You’re Next) and Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), from a story by Rossio & Wingard & Barrett, based on the character "Godzilla" owned and created by TOHO Co., Ltd.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire rampages into theaters on April 12.

Hopefully not every monsterverse movie is a kong and godzilla team up

Could put Kong up against Angurus or Baragon or Varan or Megalon

@dracula - Some Gigan or King Caesar would be sweet too.

@dracula - God I would love to see Kong versus classic Toho monsters.
This reminds me how I really want to see a monster fighting game like Destroy All Monsters Melee but with Kong also in it.

Yes to this so hard!

@dracula - Megalon should've been the villain in this considering it's taking place underground.

@soberchimera - oh, so we're cooking now

Those two bad boys look badass together.

It's a shame that the other antagonist has to remain hidden from the official marketing while Skar King gets promoted because it'd be cool if both also got their own covers standing side by side to contrast these ones.

As a Godzilla fan since, like, 1975... all these films and focus on the Big G is just so incredibly freakin' awesome.

@DocSpock - haha, in my class today a trailer for the Monarch series came on and this guy says to me how he saw King Kong vs Godzilla the other day and laughed about it being so bad...
I laughed in agreement that the original was pretty bad (though it's so bad it's good with some nice additions for me) before confirming he meant the newer Godzilla vs Kong. From there it was a solid agree to disagree. 😅

I'm 66. I am kind of an a$$hole. I take no prisoners & rarely apologize.

@DocSpock - I'm 32, it's a martial arts class people pay to take and respect is kind of a principle. I'd rather maintain what works about it for me and admittedly people in said class have a rarer opportunity to earn my genuine respect in sparring

"Today, we have some brand new stills from the movie featuring its human characters along with two magazine covers highlighting the titular Kaijus."

We all know the 1 dimensional human characters are essentially only there for filler and to keep the fx budget down, but why even bother anymore?

Watching those dry scenes is like watching porn for "the story".
Just give us the moneyshots!

@Feralwookiee - Still, just like Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall is an award-winning serious actress.... helping bring actual gravitas to the films. Love it!
Feralwookiee
Feralwookiee - 1/2/2024, 5:59 PM
@rychlec - Meh.
These movies aren't about acting or the actors at all imo.

@Feralwookiee - they definitely do well to lean into the "Just Here for Godzilla" trope

Josh must've forgotten to upload the actual stills with the cast. (Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry and Dan Stevens)

I'll do it.

I have no desire to see this...

...is what I would say if I wasn't a diehard godzilla and giant monster fan! I can't wait for this.
