People are pointing out a screen cap from early on when they show Godzilla destroying stuff and saying it looks like Mechagodzilla. 

I rewatched King of the Monsters last night and one of the articles during the credits scene indicate Monarch was working on a robotic Godzilla while he was thought to be dead.

My guess is there's a Batman Vs Superman type story where they spend the first half of the movie fighting then have to team up against whatever the big bad ends up being. The post-credits scene shows the ecoterrorists buying one of Ghidorah's heads so maybe Mecha-Ghidorah comes into play?

March 26th. Ugh, they made Kong the good guy and Godzilla the bad guy. I do not like that. Still gonna be the first dumb covid decision I will make in a year. I'm giving myself that.

Eh, there's a couple of lines right at the end of King of the Monsters that basically says, "Glad [Godzilla's] on our side." "For now." So it's not completely out of the park that if humanity continues to fuck up G will spank us for it.

Spoiler for post-credit scene from same:

Spoiler

It could also be something that comes from the group that found one of Gidhora's heads.

Ben Wheatley is no longer attached to direct the Tomb Raider sequel

It is now being written and directed by Misha Green (Lovecraft Country)

I was interested in seeing Wheatley do a major franchise project (without getting consumed by Marvel or Star Wars) but this is almost certainly for the best.

I was sorta iffy about the Borderlands movie because while I like Cate Blanchett I really don't like Eli Roth

Well now Kevin Hart has been cast as Roland so we are getting to a whole lotta nope from me

The Rock petitioned for years to be Roland in a Borderlands live action joint and the role goes to Kevin Hart?  Fuck that movie.

Lovecraft Country had compelling characters and stories and Get Out was an instant classic, so I am not really worried about Misha's writing skills.  I am confident that her Tomb Raider script will be top shelf and she will do Lara Croft some justice.

I am curious to see how Misha will handle a pure actioner while in the director's chair and I wonder if she will remain poised when she has access to a decent sized budget. 

Some small screen directors will wither under the weight of a large pile of cash and the responsibilities that come with keeping a high profile movie on track.

Here's Kirsten Stewart as Princess Diana in the upcoming movie Spencer.   It's Pablo Larraín's imagining of the weekend where she decided to leave Prince Charles.  Guess we'll be getting a trailer soon.

I'd like to hear the thought process on that one! Holy shit! I can't help but to think of that skit from MTV's The State, where the guy who "looks like a F'N blueberry" auditions for a blueberry-themed childrens' show, but the casting directors/producers have their mind set on Richard Dreyfus!

The Baz Luhrmann Elvis Biopic has been delayed to June 3, 2022 (it had been Nov 2021)

Quote

Sources report that the studio’s decision to delay the film, which was originally set to be one of its large slate of films to debut in theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously, spawns from the film still being in production in Australia with another five weeks of material left to shoot, making it highly unlikely to have made its November release on time without a rushed post-production.

Hey Wicked still isn't dead

Per Deadline - Jon M. Chu has now signed on to be the director

The fact that it is still being billed as coming out this Christmas is amazing

Isn't she a bit too old to play crazy ass Dr. Patricia Tannis?

Jamie Lee Curtis can play whoever she damn wants to

That being said - remember all of the Vault Hunters ages are older than you think (for the purposes of this movie - (Lilith(32) -Brick(41) -Mordecai(44)) So Tannis being older than all of them definitely makes sense

When they eventually get to Sonic and Knuckles, I hope they...

You know what, I'm too lazy to even finish that lazy joke. You can all figure it out for yourselves.

Adam Wingard (Godzilla vs Kong, The Guest) has been tapped to co-write and direct the sequel to Face/Off

That's right - what was originally supposed to be a reboot or remake is, according to Wingard himself, a direct sequel

They should throw everyone a curve ball and have it be how the cop(can't remember which one it was) and his family dealt with the psychological implications of that whole ordeal. No action at all, not even in flashback form!
