Godzilla graphic novel set between 2014 & Kom has been announced.
SPOILER: Show

Godzilla: Aftershock is written by Arvid Nelson and illustrated by Drew Edward Johnson and takes place after the first film’s cataclysmic events in San Francisco. A new threat is rising, bringing with it devastating earthquakes, and possessing an unstoppable urge to destroy.

“Godzilla: Aftershock is yet another exhilarating entry into the canon of the MonsterVerse, and it is especially exciting to introduce fans to a brand new original monster unique to the comic, but true to the legacy of Godzilla,” said Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics.

The graphic novel will also introduce brand new characters who’ll appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and will delve further into the clandestine activities of Monarch, the cryptozoological research group at the heart of Legendary’s MonsterVerse.

The brilliant and driven Monarch operative Dr. Emma Russell races to stop the threat as clues emerge to reveal a terrible secret—a tragedy, of apocalyptic proportions from the distant past that changed the course of human history, is returning to threaten it once more. A shadowy figure stalks Emma’s every move as she travels the globe to uncover secrets, while Godzilla clashes in an ancient rivalry as old as the earth itself. The fate of the world lies in the balance in an epic confrontation that no Godzilla fan


Very happy it will feature a original monster.

An early review of the third act in the Godzilla Anime Trilogy that actually says it's good. Personally, I'll believe it when I see it. Review also mentions a Netflix release date of January 9, 2019 which while not confirmed anywhere does fit in with the release of the previous entries which were released exactly 2 months to the day after their Japanese theatrical bow.

Netflix’s anime Godzilla trilogy has suffered in some ways from the staggered method of its release. The installments have been spaced out about six months apart from each other so that the movies could enjoy a theatrical run in Japan before their worldwide Netflix release. In retrospect, this is a series that might benefit more from a binge-watch.

I find this opinion highly questionable.

Yeah so do I because in my view there is no excuse for poor character development, or rushed forced tropes and forced love interests or not giving your audience better hints which really hurt the last two movies badly. I've come to expect this crap from modern Hollywood films because there jarring for easy cash I do not expect it from netflix as they have the ability for wider ideas and perspectives as there not as restricted creatively. So this studio had no excuse they dropped the ball badly on this one and even if the last movie is good it doesn't change the fact that the first two in my view are the worst thing to ever come out of the godzilla franchise.

I thought the worst thing was the first one. Then I saw the second one.

There is absolutely nothing that would make me want to combine the tedium of 3 separate awful movies into one elongated experience. It's not that I felt a lack of closure from any of these films, rather I just felt an overwhelming (and almost vitriolic) lack of interest. It's weird when I feel like I gotta watch Godzilla's Revenge as a palette cleanser, but I think I'll do just that after watching the third one.

Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3, The Prestige) whom I am a big fan of and Eiza González (Baby Driver) have been added to Godzilla vs Kong. Hall apparently in a lead role.

I am just now realizing that I could be watching more movies starring Eiza González, and I don't know why this hasn't occurred to me before now. It's good to know that in the near future I can kill two birds with one stone. Gotta watch as much Godzilla and Eiza González as possible, you know.

She's fun to watch.

*looks up Eiza González's filmography*

Oh crap, she's in the the live-action Jem and the Holograms film. I'm gonna have to rethink this. She's not that fun to watch.
