Godzilla Vs Kong director, Adam Wingard, in talks to return for Son of Kong

It looks like Legendary’s Monsterverse isn’t done yet as it seems the next movie is already at planning stage.

Following on from last month’s Godzilla Vs Kong, which itself came after Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), Kong: Skull Island (2017) and Godzilla (2014), it seems that the positive numbers for it on release -despite the now waning pandemic – has given the suits a reason to look at keeping the franchise alive.

Word is that Legendary are talking to Godzilla Vs Kong director Adam Wingard to return for more monster madness: “Wingard is said to have been very involved in creating Godzilla vs. Kong set-pieces as well as the world-building for the movie’s Hollow Earth plotline, and he and Legendary have been cooking up plenty of ideas already. In fact, one possible title being floated internally? Son of Kong.”

Wingard is currently developing a live-action Thundercats movie and a Face/off sequel for which he’s hoping to get John Travolta and Nicholas Cage back, so it could be sometime before we see the next monsterverse movie.

I’m so confused about how I feel about this franchise as I don’t hate any of the movies but neither do I love them… but I do feel excited at the thought of more. Is that weird?

Let me know your thoughts…
