What comes after Godzilla vs. Kong?
The MonsterVerse could be expanded to include at least one movie. The Hollywood Reporter is said to have exclusively learned that there are talks of bringing director Adam Wingard back for another monster movie. There are no concrete plans, but in fact there are probably ideas in the room. One of them is “Son Of Kong”.
“Godzilla vs. Kong” cost about $170 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The monster film has grossed more than $467 million worldwide (via BoxOfficeMojo) — even though it was released in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. The work took almost 100 million more than its predecessor. No wonder then that the main studio responsible for Legendary could consider expanding the MonsterVerse.
