"This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own," reads the official description by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. "The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever."

Reprising their roles from the previous Godzilla vs. Kong are Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle. They'll be joined by Legion's Dan Stevens, Shang-Chi's Fala Chen, Chernobyl's Alex Ferns, and Moana's Rachel House.
