'Godzilla' sequel scheduled for summer 2018

By Daniel S Levine,

Those who loved how Gareth Edwards' rebooted Godzilla will have to wait four years to see the further adventures of our favorite giant reptile. Warner Bros. and Legendary announced Thursday that Godzilla 2 won’t hit theaters until summer 2018.

Godzilla 2 will be in theaters on June 8, 2018, the studios said, reports TheWrap.

The sequel was put in motion quickly after Godzilla lit up the box office this summer as one of its few success stories. It grossed $200.4 million in the U.S. alone, plus another $307 million overseas. It starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe and Bryan Cranston. Taylor-Johnson, Olsen and Watanabe could be back in the sequel.

Edwards is scheduled to be helming the sequel. Lucasfilm and Disney have hired him to also direct one of the upcoming Star Wars spin-offs, which will hit theaters on Dec. 16, 2016. There are still no details about the subject of that project, but Edwards will have his hands full if he has to juggle both Star Wars and Godzilla.

This is the latest release date Warner Bros. has set. The studio has been on a scheduling spree as of late, most notably scheduling nine new DC movies through 2020.
