Godzilla and Kong fought against one another in Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse crossover last year, with the success of this kaiju battle not only netting it a sequel, but an upcoming television sequel as well. With the follow-up movie confirmed to bring back Adam Wingard as director, and announcing that Dan Stevens of Legion and Beauty and the Beast fame would be in the starring role, fans are taking the opportunity to celebrate the future return of the king of the monsters and the ruler of Skull Island.
In the first crossover film of the MonsterVerse, Godzilla scored a major victory against Kong, with the two eventually setting aside their differences in order to fight an even bigger threat in MechaGodzilla. While the two seemed to leave one another amicably, their rivalry might begin anew in this sequel, as well as within the upcoming Apple TV + that will expand on the MonsterVerse. With actor Russell Wyatt reportedly being sought to be the lead actor of this new series, it seems that Legendary Pictures’ universe isn’t slowing down any time soon.
Actor Dan Stevens has certainly had some memorable roles in the past, with the actor being the star of the X-Men television series, Legionand the Beast in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation. With Stevens set to be the leading man for Wingard’s kaiju sequel, this wouldn’t be the first time that the two worked together, as 2014’s The Guest saw Wingard in the director’s chair while Stevens brought the disturbing leading man to life in that horror feature.
What do you think of the MonsterVerse confirmed to be making a comeback to the big screen? Are you hyped that director Adam Wingard is returning to helm the project?

Fingers Crossed For Destroyah
I will say, the Godzilla monsterverse so far has been good as fuck! I was under the impression that Godzilla v Kong would be the end, but apparently a sequel is being made. I’m pretty much all in at this point. I hope we get Destroyah.

Good Casting Choices
We’re getting Christopher Walken in the sequel to Dune and Dan Stevens in the sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong. I like these casting choices.

Random, but Godzilla vs. Kong was such a badass movie. Can’t wait for the sequel.
