Godzilla X Kong’s Been Crushing At The Box Office, But There’s Some Bad News For MonsterVerse Fans Looking Forward To The Sequel

Film

Although 2023 was a big year for the MonsterVerse thanks to spreading into the TV realm with the shows Skull Island and Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, which can be respectively streamed with a Netflix subscription and Apple TV+ subscription, at the end of March, the franchise made its theatrical return with Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. Since dropping on the 2024 release schedule, the latest MonsterVerse movie has been doing quite well at the box office, ranking #2 worldwide with its $563.8 million haul, trailing only behind Dune: Part Two. As a result, development on a sequel has begun, but some bad news on that front has come in today.

After being hired to direct 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, and then reprising his helming duties for Godzilla x Kong, Adam Wingard will reportedly not return to direct a third movie in the MonsterVerse. According to THR, the filmmaker going his separate ways with Legendary Entertainment, which controls the franchise, is “described as amicable and stemming from timing issues.” It’s also said “the door remains open” for him to return to the MonsterVerse someday.
