Dougherty described the film as: “The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting, but there are paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”
On September 2014, it was announced that Max Borenstein would return to write the script for Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Borenstein later also spoke about the sequel, saying, “The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things.”
Borenstein also mentioned about Godzilla sequel while promoting Kong: Skull Island, that one thing he intended to do in the Godzilla sequel is to make Godzilla more vicarious for the audience, he said, “When [Godzilla] blows his blue flame down the throat of the other creature—a creature we never empathized with in any way—we’re empathizing with Godzilla. That’s the thing about the movie that I’m most proud of, and I think Gareth did an amazing job pulling that off. I think that’s what sets up our Godzilla franchise in a way that the second Godzilla movie can pick up on to begin to make Godzilla a more relatable, emphatic figure. But it needed that groundwork because you don’t immediately invest emotionally in something that looks like a giant dragon or lizard.”
