After the success of Godzilla vs Kong Warner Bros. is looking into more kaiju sequels, the first of which is rumored to be called Son of Kong.
After the surprising success of Godzilla vs Kong from Warner Bros., the studio is reportedly looking into delivering more installments to the MonsterVerse, with director Adam Wingaard currently in talks to return for a new film. Given that Kong: Skull Island is currently the highest grossing chapter in the quadrilogy (bringing in $566 million), it makes sense that Warner Bros. is keen on carrying on the titan’s legacy.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the title being toyed with for Wingaard’s sequel is Son of Kong. It’s unsurprising since Godzilla vs Kong introduced the Hollow Earth, which essentially allows the writers to bring in all manner of classic kaiju monsters from the original Toho movies. This would likely be the way Son of Kong would make his debut on the big screen, but only time will tell.

Here’s the official synopsis for Godzilla vs Kong:
“Legends collide in “Godzilla vs Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.”
Directed by Adam Wingard, the upcoming film stars Millie Bobby Brown, Alexander Skarsgård, Eiza González, Julian Dennison, and Brian Tyree Henry, Demian Bichir, Rebecca Hall, Jessica Henwick, Lance Reddick, and Kyle Chandler.
