While there’s no start date for filming on Godzilla VS. Kong as of yet, a new report suggests that filming will take the MonsterVerse back to Atlanta, Georgia, where a significant amount of 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters was filmed.
Omega Underground has learned that Godzilla VS. Kong will reportedly film a lot of its principal photography in Atlanta. It is rumored that characters from Godzilla: King of the Monsters may be reappearing in the crossover, although there’s not word on any returning characters from Godzilla or Kong: Skull Island. While Vancouver, Canada seems to be a favorite filming location of director Adam Wingard, there does not seem to be any indication that he will be returning there to film anything.
As mentioned above, it’s not known when Godzilla VS. Kong will begin filming. Filming for Godzilla: King of the Monsters was completed this year, even though the movie won’t be released until March 22, 2019. Filming for the sequel could begin sometime next year, or Warner Brothers and Legendary could play things more by ear and wait until they’ve test screened their next MonsterVerse movie before having the cameras roll.
Godzilla VS. Kong is set for release on May 29, 2020. None of the movie’s cast has been announced, aside from the title confirming mandatory appearances from the two CGI monsters.

‘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.
