Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard is reportedly in talks to helm the next MonsterVerse film from Legendary, which is reportedly called Son of Kong. While many Legendary insiders thought the company would begin to wind down the MonsterVerse franchise after Godzilla vs. Kong, the company seems to be going in the opposite direction according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter.
As of now, no official timetable or information is known for the future of the franchise, but should Wingard return, he’ll likely have a hand in how things go. Wingard was said to be very involved in creating some of the Godzilla vs. Kong set pieces, as well as building out the world and plot of the film. Wingard returning would also mark the first return of a director to the MonsterVerse project since the start of it, as every film has had different directors attached.
