A 'Godzilla X Kong' Sequel is Officially in the Works

Monster Movies Reign Supreme

The Monsterverse films and adaptations are thriving better than most and seem to just keep getting better, too! Godzilla X Kong was a hit, and a sequel is already on its way. 

Long Live The Kings of Monster Films

Piggybacking off the success of Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire, a sixth mysterious Monsterverse film has been announced. It would be easy to assume that this film will be a sequel to the recent film; however, nothing is yet confirmed. With ten years under their belt, Legendary’s Monsterverse films have expanded across different platforms and films. Dave Callaham, who previously worked on Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and confirmed he is writing the upcoming sixth movie in the franchise.

“Callaham knows a thing or two about Godzilla. The scribe wrote the early drafts and received story by credit for 2014’s Godzilla, the movie that kicked off Legendary’s monster mania,” The Hollywood Reporter noted. There is no word on who will be directing the upcoming sixth monster project. Additionally, there is no information on if it’ll be a follow-up to Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong and Godzilla x Kong or if it will take the monster franchise into a whole different direction instead.

How Legendary Captured Everyone’s Attention

The Monsterverse phenomenon began with the Godzilla film back in 2014 and has since continued in the form of different films. Some movies focused on a singular monster, while others showcased multiple on a huge scale. Other films included 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, and the most recent record-breaking movie, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. In total, the Monsterverse has accumulated over $2 billion at the global box office. Of course, some movies did better than others, but every single one captured the minds and attention of those who went to see them. 

Additionally, the success of the movies even allowed the Monsterverse to translate into a highly successful series, Legendary’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters for Apple TV+. Even that series has been confirmed to be getting a second season on Apple TV+. All the films in the Monsterverse, apart from the recent film, can be found in different streaming services online. Since they are so popular, they tend to be passed around, so everyone gets some of the love.
