The 'untitled 'Godzilla vs. Kong' sequel' (under the working title 'Origins') is an upcoming American monster film directed by Adam Wingard. A sequel to 'Godzilla vs. Kong' (2021), it will be the fifth film in Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse, the 37th film in the 'Godzilla' franchise, the 13th film in the 'King Kong' franchise, and the fifth Godzilla film to be completely produced by an American film studio. Due to the box office and streaming success of 'Godzilla vs. Kong' during the COVID-19 pandemic, Legendary announced a sequel in March 2022 and that filming would commence later in the year. In May 2022, it was announced that Wingard would return to direct and Dan Stevens cast as the lead. Filming began in July 2022 in Gold Coast, Queensland.

DevelopmentIn March 2019, producer Alex Garcia stated that Legendary hoped to produce more MonsterVerse films if they became successful, stating, "It's one brick at a time, each piece has to be as good as it can be, so right now it's all focused on this ['Godzilla: King of the Monsters' and 'Godzilla vs. Kong']. But could there be? Yeah, that's the hope if the movies turn out really well." In February 2021, Wingard commented on the future of the MonsterVerse, "I know where we could go potentially with future films." However, he noted that the MonsterVerse was created "to a certain degree" to lead towards 'Godzilla vs. Kong'. He added that the MonsterVerse is at a "crossroads", stating, "It's really at the point where audiences have to kind of step forward and vote for more of these things. If this movie is a success obviously they will continue forward."
'Godzilla vs. Kong' was released on March 24, 2021 and became a box office and streaming hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. The film grossed $470 million worldwide against a break-even point of $330 million and became the most pirated film of 2021. On April 4, 2021, Legendary's CEO Josh Grode commented on potential sequels, "we have a number of ideas for more movies." That same day, the hashtag #ContinueTheMonsterVerse began trending on Twitter, which was acknowledged by Legendary and garnered support from Jordan Vogt-Roberts (director of 'Kong: Skull Island'). On April 27, 2021, 'The Hollywood Reporter' stated that Legendary was "quietly taking steps to stretch the series into one or more installments," while negotiating with Wingard to potentially return to direct. Various ideas were considered, with 'Son of Kong' being one potential title. In August 2021, MonsterVerse writer Max Borenstein stated that "there will be some new, interesting installments coming" due to the success of 'Godzilla vs. Kong'.
