This news has been circulating a bit over the last 24 hours, but this seems to be the first legit site to report it. I've also heard that Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler are returning and Francis McDormand is being pursued for a role but this article does not confirm that.



As I understand he will be playing a character named Kenny that escapes his bullied life through Beats headphones and VR where he escapes to a place called Kaiju Land where he communicates with a monster he calls Minya who teaches him life lessons through the teachings of his indifferent father. Minya's father teaches him to deal with bullies through barbaric means like learning to fight back and stand up for himself which Kenny rejects and instead decides to use shock to keep his bullies at bay by wearing tight short, shorts to school which works because the bullies "Don't want to go anywhere near that"

She has also been the casting director for the MCU, though "Deadpool" is not part of it, but hence why we are seeing familiar faces in both series. Sarah was also the cd for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", so I am not surprised that she is considering Frances McDormand. That would be quite a coup.


Sarah Finn is really elevating the Monsterverse by bringing so many prestigious actors into the Godzilla/Kong pantheon.

Julian Dennison is another good casting choice. He was great in Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Deadpool 2.

Slashfilm says Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler are returning.

I guess this means KotM and vs. King will be pretty connected.

He does say that there will be lots of monsters going crazy on each other, and that there will be a clear winner. This tells me that this movie will not be a strait up Godzilla Vs Kong. I get the impression that they will fight at first, but will team up against other monsters (which includes King Ghidorah?) and team Godzilla/Kong will be the clear winner.

I was hoping for a straight up Godzilla Vs Kong movie without other monsters interfering. But in any case, sounds like it's going to be a fun movie.

^ I don't think he meant 'there will be lots of monsters.' I think he meant 'there will be lots of brawling between the monsters.'


For context, here's the full quote:
Adam Wingard wrote:I really want you to take those characters seriously. I want you to be emotionally invested, not just in the human characters, but actually in the monsters. It’s a massive monster brawl movie. There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other, but at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it. I want you to be emotionally invested in them. I think that’s what’s going to make it really cool.


"Lots" is referring to the amount of monster brawling, not the amount of monsters. That's not to say that there definitely won't be other monsters besides Godzilla and Kong in the movie but I wouldn't bet on additional monsters based solely on this quote.


Now cue a million clickbait articles proclaiming "ADAM WINGARD CONFIRMS MULTIPLE MONSTERS FOR GODZILLA VS. KONG".....

I think you can interpret what Wingard said both ways. While there has been nothing official about additional monsters, it would seem to me that to cutting the amount of monsters in half from the preceding film is a hard sell, even if the two are Godzilla and King Kong.

I wouldn't mind if other monsters made appearances in this movie. I would also not mind if either Godzilla or Kong fight any of these monsters before their match. But the battle between Godzilla and Kong should only be between Godzilla and Kong with no other monsters interfering. And I also don't want Godzilla and Kong teaming up against a common enemy. The last thing I want to see is another repeat of Batman Vs Superman. I just want Godzilla and Kong to beat the crap out of each other and at the very end of the movie, the loser (Kong) either retreats or is killed.

And yes, I am hoping and expecting Godzilla to be the clear winner :mrgreen:

Wowee. Then again, the quality of the casts in these MonsterVerse films have been uniformly stellar.

There was a time in my life where I could not stand Meryl Streep. However, now that I've become an old softy, I find her fascinating and getting Meryl would be quite a coup! (and finally give her a chance to be in a King Kong movie. Remember guys, that Dino DeLaurentis turned her down for "Kong 76").

We shall see whom Sarah Finn will cast. As I stated before, she usually likes to cast performers she has already worked with (very fun seeing that MCU & Monsterverse crossover). If she was to cast a big time actress for this feature, me thinks it could be Glenn Close, since she Sarah had already placed her in "Guardian of the Galaxy".

Glenn Close in Godzilla vs. Kong would be something else.

Going by other movies for which Sarah Finn was the casting director, I suppose it's possible she might try to cast Sandra Bullock (Crash), Rene Russo (Thor), or Michelle Pfeiffer (Ant-Man and The Wasp).

I was going for the most mainstream choice I could think of. Everyone's seen Prada, right?

Also, she's really good in it.

I've seen one scene from The Devil Wears Prada, I think. It was Stanley Tucci trying to argue a point that the script seem to think made sense, but actually his line of reasoning was completely self-defeating.

Is The French Lieutenant's Woman not pretty mainstream, though?

Sorry, we're way off topic.

All would be interesting and all would be very solid choices. There are other big time actress that Sarah has cast - Sigourney Weaver (Vantage Point), Gwyneth Paltrow (Iron Man movies) and even Scarlett Johansson (MCU, Jungle Book). At this point, I am not even closing the door for a possible Frances McDormand casting.

Well for all we know Frances McDormand is still being considered for a part but hasn't officially signed in yet. The article may have simply announced it prematurely. I guess we'll find out in the coming weeks or months.
