All of the films in the Legendary series are set to be distributed by Warner Bros. (except in Japan), despite Legendary's current distribution partner being Universal Pictures. This is because Toho's deal with Legendary to grant them the Godzilla license was made exclusively with it and Warner Bros.
The Legendary series is the first series in which Godzilla does not deliberately cause destruction in the first film. While Godzilla was portrayed as the protagonistic monster in the first film of the Millennium series, Godzilla 2000: Millennium, he was still depicted causing destruction and attacking humans, while the Godzilla in Legendary Pictures' Godzilla is never seen intentionally causing destruction or threatening human characters, though he does cause minor destruction as a byproduct of his size.
The Legendary series will be the first series to feature a meeting between Godzilla and King Kong since the Showa series.
