“Godzilla” has already grossed $508 million worldwide, making a follow-up something of an inevitability. Legendary financed 75% of “Godzilla’s” $160 million budget, with Warner providing the rest and the companies splitting marketing costs.

Legendary recently announced a “King Kong” prequel, “Skull Island,” which will bow November 2016.
