Warner Bros. and Legendary have released new details about Godzilla vs. Kong 2 which teases a team-up versus a mystery Titan kaiju threat.
Previously, it was hinted the sequel makes use of the son of Kong, but the new Godzilla vs. Kong 2 synopsis makes no mention of that, as it’s said the film teams Godzilla with Kong “against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world” and that it explores the histories, mysteries and origins of the Titans.
Godzilla vs Kong 2 synopsis:
This latest entry follows up the explosive showdown of Godzilla vs. Kong with an all-new cinematic adventure, pitting the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence – and our own. The epic new film will delve further into the histories of these Titans, their origins and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.
The cast for the untitled Godzilla vs Kong 2 has also been announced as Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle will be back, with newcomers including Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House.

Who is the Godzilla vs Kong 2 colossal undiscovered threat?
Regarding the new threat, as it is described as hidden within our world, it seems to be from underground or the center of the Earth, with some Godzilla fans thinking it could be Leviathan, Anguiris, or Varan.
A Redditor even guesses that the recent Call of Duty crossover with Godzilla and Kong might hint at the identity of the Titan, which according to the cave painting Easter Egg above looks to be a lava and/or fire-based kaiju.
In MonsterVerse lore, Leviathan appears on a monitor in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, but is said to be aquatic in nature and actually the Loch Ness Monster.
Anguiris is a kaiju who first appeared in the 1955 Godzilla film, Godzilla Raids Again, and who has sharp spikes, and is capable of burrowing substantial distances, so there is the hidden within our world reference, and much like Godzilla is thought to have survived by lying dormant until nuclear blasts woke him up.
Varan also has a row of spikes on his back, and he has the ability to fly like a flying squirrel due to membranes between his legs, which he uses for gliding. Much like the other kaiju, Varan escaped extinction and lived for millions of years at the bottom of a lake.
Doing a quick search for Godzilla lava kaiju also reveals Kumasogami, Dororin, or maybe even Gigan. How about Destoryah?
