The King Kaiju is bringing some friends along in "Godzilla 2."

According to Dread Central, one of the main problems of the first film was that title character only appeared in the film for a total of 11 minutes. Legendary's Barnaby Legg addressed the issue at this year's Comic-Con, and promised that there will be more "Godzilla" this time around.

"Oh, don't worry," Legg said. We know. All I can say is stay tuned! You're going to get exactly what you're hoping for.

Bryan Cranston, who was also in attendance at SDCC, spoke about his role in the first film. 

"I was reading that script going, 'Wow here's the emotional core! This character -- And he's dead!," he explained. "Page 50 and he's dead! How did that happen? I told them, I said, 'You're gonna make a mistake by killing this character too soon."

Director Gareth Edwards clearly stated he has taken heed about the complaints with the first film. Now that more mosnters have been confirmed for the sequel, Edwards and his team will likely give the beasts the screen time they deserve.

Below are the confirmed monsters appearing in "Godzilla 2."

Mothra, a gigantic beast that resembles a moth first appeared on the big screen in 1964's "Mothra vs Godzilla."

Rodan is a dragon-like creature with the ability to emit devastating shockwaves when he flies. The beast debuted on the big screen in 1956.

King Ghidora is a three-headed beast that turned Godzilla from anti-hero to hero when it appeared as the series' first villain in 1964 "Ghidora: The Three-Headed Monster."

2014's "Godzilla" is a reboot of Toho's Godzilla franchise. The film is set in the present day, fifteeen years after a discovery that leads to the awakening of two giant creatures called "MUTOs." The two awaken a larger and even more destructive beast, the alpha known as "Godzilla," whose existence has been kept under wraps by the U.S. government since 1954. The film includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, and Juliette Binoche.

"Godzilla 2" is slated for a June 8, 2016 release.
