It looks like director Gareth Edwards won’t be returning for Godzilla 2, which has now been pushed back from June 8th of 2018 to March 22nd of 2019.
Word is rather hush in regards to Edwards leaving the project, but I’m assuming it has something to do with him being super busy with Star Wars: Rogue One and perhaps WB doesn’t want to budge on release dates.
I’m not all too worried about this project, but I can see how fans of his Godzilla might be now approaching the sequel with some caution.
I thought Godzilla was a bit of a letdown, but that’s not entirely Edwards’ fault. I’m not exactly glad to see him exiting the project, but I’m also not too hung up on it.
