What’s next from Legendary’s MonsterVerse? As we recently learned, a Godzilla vs. Kong sequel will film in Australia this year, and the film has now been officially dated for release.
The untitled sequel arrives in theaters on March 15, 2024!
So what exactly is this particular MonsterVerse project, you ask? Is it truly a direct sequel to Godzilla vs. Kongwhich made $468 million at the global box office last year?
Well, we were previously aware of a couple different MonsterVerse projects, including a live action series for Apple TV+ that will feature Godzilla and several other monsters. We had also learned back in April 2021 that Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard was in talks to direct another MonsterVerse movie, which was potentially (at the time) a Son of Kong movie
The final moments of Godzilla vs. Kong suggested that we could soon be seeing the continuing adventures of Kong, who has found himself a new home in the Hollow Earth. This could very well be the “Godzilla vs. Kong sequel” that has just been dated this week. Then again, the soon-to-film sequel project could be a different movie entirely. We’ll keep you posted!
Godzilla vs. Kong was the fourth movie in the MonsterVerse, which kicked off with Godzilla in 2014 and continued with Kong: Skull Island in 2017 and Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019.
