A couple years ago Legendary surprised Comic Con attendees with a little footage of Gareth Edwards working on a little film called Godzilla. Now this year Legendary sought out the director once again and this time, he couldn’t even let people know about what monsters were going to be part of the sequel due to working on Star Wars.

Not without a few tricks that is. Edwards masterfully revealed the names of the different monsters behind a few bleeps and censors. At least those in attendance in San Diego got a bit more information as a clip was shown of black and white footage, destruction abound and the familiar voice of John F. Kennedy filling the screen.

The black and white video was filled with footage of destruction from around the world with a voice over from John F Kennedy. Text on the screen reads: “There is still one secret that remains hidden… There are others.”

The video then revealed three Godzilla universe monsters: the giant pteranodon kaiju Rodan, the giant divine moth kaiju Mothra and the three-headed dragon kaiju Ghidorah

That wasn’t all from Legendary. Teasing a Destroy All Monsters movie is one thing. Knowing you have the rights to the King Kong franchise is another thing.

Before he left the stage, Legendary Pictures head Thomas Tull also dished a little surprise: that Legendary is heading back to the world of King Kong with a prequel about Skull Island. In what IGN reports as Comic-Con 2014′s first true surprise, we “don’t even know who’s writing or directing the film yet, but we do know it has a release date: November 4, 2016.”

The more information we hear about King Kong, the more information and theories are starting to emerge. Like the one from IGN’s Scott Collura where both Godzila 2 and Skull Island are going to exist in the same universe. If that’s the case, one would only believe that a King Kong vs. Godzilla movie is coming down the line.
