The epic showdown between monsters finally has a director at the helm.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adam Wingard is set to helm the mighty battle, Godzilla v Kong. This will be the Avengers type film of Legendary’s brand new Monsterverse that started with Gareth EdwardsGodzilla in 2014 and continued this year with Kong: Skull Island.

Before the epic battle happens, the giant lizard will be getting a standalone sequel titled, Godzilla: King of Monsters in 2019 which will star Mille Bob Brown, Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga in the lead roles as a family unit.

Adam Wingard has also directed smaller budgeted  films such as Blair Witch and Death Note but this will be his first big budgeted film. Now with a director in the chair the studio will now be looking to fill out the cast now as nobody is signed on for the film yet.

Godzilla v Kong is set to hit theaters on May 22, 2020
