Godzilla: King of the Monsters has completed its principal photography on schedule, thanks to daily tweets by director and co-writer Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus). Dougherty obviously wanted to give fans and followers of his Twitter a nicer insight into the day-t0-day life of filmmaking, similar to the teases and BTS shots Ron Howard posts while working on the Untitled Han Solo Movie.
The sequel to 2014’s Godzilla completed filming today (Wed, 27th September) and obviously now begins the long process of post-production to get the film into gear before its 2019 release date. Check out Dougherty’s tweet below:

The plot is largely being kept under wraps, of course, but it has been previously confirmed, also via another MonsterVerse movie Kong: Skull Island, that legendary Godzilla characters Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah will be included in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Who knows how much the actual monsters of the movie will be featured along with humans, but hopefully Michael Dougherty can deliver a sequel beyond its predecessor.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Zhang Ziyi, and Charles Dance. Here’s the official synopsis:
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is in cinemas March 22, 2019
9 Reasons Martian Manhunter Needs His Own DC Extended Universe Film
For more than 60 years, the character of Martian Manhunter has been a mainstay of the Justice League team and the DC Comics brand. Early readers loved his dynamic image when put against the likes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The green skin with the bold, red “X” across his chest, and even the stoic yet incredibly powerful character behind the image was certainly enough to keep him around.
But to modern fans of DC Comics, J’onn J’onzz is not seen as a truly beloved character akin to the Trinity, the Flash, Green Lantern or most of the other members of the Justice League. This is unfair. The Martian Manhunter is a classic DC character, and the fact that there haven’t been talks about introducing him on the big screen (as far as we know) is a crime. The character deserves, arguably, more than any other League member to be part of the DC Extended Universe moving forward.
