Charles Dance, best known for his role as Tywin Lannister on the first four seasons of Game of Thrones, will be joining the cast of Godzilla: King of The Monsters. In addition, Sally Hawkins will be returning to reprise her role as Dr. Vivienne Graham from 2014’s Godzilla.
Deadline is reporting that Charles Dance has officially signed on to play a new character in Godzilla sequel. In addition, The Hollywood Reporter has added that he will be joined by Sally Hawkins, a scientist working for Monarch, the secret organization that has been keeping track of the giant monsters hidden throughout the planet Earth in order to contain them. It has been rumored that Ken Watanabe, who played a fellow Monarch scientist in the 2014 movie, has a window to appear in the movie if he so chooses, although nothing has been confirmed.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters begins his reign on March 22, 2019. The film’s cast includes Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, Anthony Ramos, Charles Dance, and Sally Hawkins. As for other MonsterVerse offerings, Kong: Skull Island is still playing in theaters, and Godzilla vs. Kong will open on May 22, 2020.
10 ‘Godzilla’ Kaiju That Need To Be In The MonsterVerse
With both 2014’s Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island managing to outperform expectations, the MonsterVerse from Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers is off to a good start. That being said, there’s room for growth amongst the roster of kaiju – thus far, only five classic kaiju have been confirmed to exist in the MonsterVerse: Godzilla, King Kong, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, and of those, we’ve only seen two of them in action. Should the series continue to succeed, the setting’s going to need more than original monsters like the M.U.T.O. and the Skullcrawlers – it will need to pull in some fan-favorite monsters from the classic creature features to keep things interesting. Here are ten of Toho’s best kaiju that would make fine additions to the MonsterVerse, with explanations of who they are and why they need to be a part of the setting.
