Of course, few details were given in the report about what this sequel will cover. There is no word on whether the new movie will directly continue the story of Godzilla vs Kong. After all, the blockbuster did part with our kaiju in good terms. Godzilla went back to his usual ocean hideout while Kong went deep into the Hollow Earth to reclaim his rightful territory. But as you can guess, neither of these beasts will know peace so long as mankind wants to use them.
This latest update gives fans an idea about the new movie's production details and schedule, but it isn't the only one circulating the Internet. In the past, reports have surfaced about the MonsterVerse's future as many suggest Godzilla vs Kong director Adam Wingard will return to oversee this sequel. The reports also suggest the project is operating under the running title Son of Kong. And in the meantime, Apple+ TV did confirm it is developing a live-action MonsterVerse series of its own that focuses on Godzilla ahead of his solo sequel.
