Rodan is a 2025 American Monster film directed by Zack Snyder. A sequel to both Godzilla vs.
A Rodan solo film had been talked about ever since 2019, when Legendary released Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019), with Michael Dougherty originally at the rights to direct it. However, since he was busy making Godzilla B.C. (2024), Zack Snyder took over instead, insisting Legendary and Warner Bros. to promise it at least a success. Surprisingly, Rodan beated out Resident Evil: Final Chapter's (2016) $306.9 million. It was written by longtime MonsterVerse writers Max Borenstein and David Callahan. Principal photography began in March 2024 and ended in July 2024.
Rodan was theatrically released on September 6, 2025, to more mixed reviews, with praise to it's visual effects, action sequences, cinematography, pacing and musical score, but criticism towards the plot, time and human characters. It grossed $411.6 million at the end of it's theatrical run, against a production budget of $156-168 million and a break-even point of $360 million, making it a somewhat underwhelming box office success.
The eighth film in the franchise, Rebirth Of Mothra, would be released in 2026.
A surviving species of Giant Prehistoric Dragonfly, the Meganulon and Meganula, come out of hibernation from Mount Fuji and Rodan, the fire demon, must destroy them before a worldwide infestation begins. But, Meganulon and Meganula have a horrifying Queen ready to take on Rodan: Megaguirus. Both titans engage in a war in the skies. Will Rodan survive?
