The upcoming movie is a sequel to the 2014 movie Godzilla that was a reboot of the classic monster story.

The upcoming Godzilla vs Kong also stars some actors from the previous movie as Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler reprise their King of the Monsters roles. However, there are some new faces as well with Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry playing the new leads.
Fans are already picking their side in this clash of the titan-esque plotline. One of the fans commented on the tweet and wrote that they are hoping it will be one of those movies where they start to fight but then they would have to team up in order to defeat a bigger threat. They, however, mentioned that they support Godzilla.
