A sequel to this summer's Godzilla reboot is going to happen ... and this time the big green guy might be bringing a few pals of his to the party.

At the Legendary Pictures panel in Hall H at Comic-Con, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards — who's now at work on one of the Star Wars spinoff movies — confirmed via video message that Godzilla 2 will happen, with him returning to direct.

Then Legendary chief Thomas Tull introduced one more piece of "classified" footage done in newsreel style that flashed silhouettes of .... deep breath ... classic monsters Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah!

Tull said that Toho Studios "had been great to us" and that, yes, Godzilla will face off against his three biggest rivals in his next big-screen adventure. As the newsreel footage said, "conflict is inevitable"! Considering the lineup, it's hard to argue.

Stay tuned for more from Hall H!
