Dan Stevens is Entering the MonsterVerse with ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Sequel

Dan Stevens is set to star in the sequel to 2021’s MonsterVerse entry, Godzilla vs. Kong.

The film will have Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard back at the helm and will mark his second film with Stevens in the lead following 2014 thriller The Guest.

This is the first major role to be announced for the still-untitled next film in the Monsterverse, the fifth entry after Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla (2014), Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island (2017), Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong (2021). Of course, there’s not much to go on plot-wise, apart from, you know, presuming that Godzilla and Kong will be facing off again before teaming up again against some other giant threat.

Godzilla vs. Kong was a big hit – particularly for a pandemic release and a follow-up to King of the Monsters, which didn’t perform as well as was expected. The film topped $US468 million worldwide, a strong haul for the time of release and considering the film had a same-day release on U.S. streaming service HBO Max.

Stevens’ credits include Marvel adaptation series Legion, Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, limited Julia Roberts series Gaslit, Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, and hit U.K. series Downton Abbey. He voices a character in Netflix’s upcoming CG-animated adventure The Sea Beast, set for release in July.

Production on the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel will be kicking off in Australia later this year.
