Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are now slowly building up the literally giant world of their fictional "MonsterVerse" universe, which started with the release of the "Godzilla" reboot back in 2014. After the release of "Kong: Skull Island," which still takes place in the same shared fictional universe, the companies are now preparing for the second "Godzilla" movie that will have the official title, "Godzilla: King of Monsters."

New cast member

A report from Deadline has confirmed that the studios have now brought in "Game of Thrones" alum Charles Dance to play a role in the upcoming film. As of the moment, not much is yet known about his specific character in the upcoming film.

Dance is well known for his role in the HBO television series, where he played Lord Tywin Lannister, head of House Lannister and Lord of Casterly Rock. Gamers will also be familiar with his voice over work as Emhyr var Emries in the game, "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt." Dance's latest role was the vampire elder, Thomas, in "Underworld: Blood Wars."

Confirmed actors

Two actors who appeared in the original 2014 "Godzilla" reboot have been confirmed to return. Ken Watanabe, who played the role of Dr. Ishiro Serizawa, and Sally Hawkins, who played Dr. Vivienne Graham, will be returning to reprise their respective roles in the upcoming sequel.

New actors have also been brought in, which includes O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, and Millie Bobby Brown.

Right before Dance was confirmed to be appearing in the movie, broadway actor Anthony Ramos was also confirmed to be playing a role. Unlike the other actors, Ramos has been confirmed to be playing a character named Cpl. Mendoza. The character has been described as a "calm and cool" person whose bravery will shine through when it is needed.

A world of monsters

While the plot for the upcoming "Godzilla" sequel has not yet been revealed, the upcoming film will likely be a setup for the next movie in the franchise, called "Godzilla vs. Kong," which will be released in 2020. Several iconic monsters will likely also be making an appearance in the upcoming movie given that Legendary has already acquired the rights to monsters such as Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah from Toho. Seeing as that all of these monsters might be coming out, fans may be witnessing an all out battle royale when "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" hits theaters on March 22, 2019.
