Godzilla vs. Kong 2, which will be made by Legendary Pictures, will reportedly be called Godzilla vs. Kong.
The logo for Godzilla and Kong is the same as the one used for 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong. The only difference is that the word “vs.” has been changed to “and.” It was first seen on gifts for the crew of the next MonsterVerse movie and was then shared online. Since wrap gifts are being given out, it’s likely that filming for the upcoming sequel, which began at the end of July in Australia with the working title Origins, is over or about to end.
The “Origins” production title has been known for a while, but if this is, at last, the actual title, it opens up many interesting story possibilities!
That said, I’m secretly hoping they name this thing “Godzilla vs. Kong 2: Godzilla and Kong – Origins” just to be confusing. 😆 pic.twitter.com/sKBIgSeDuo

The fifth movie in MonsterVerse will be about Godzilla and Kong. The official synopsis for the upcoming sequel says that “the mighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla will face off against a colossal threat hidden in our world that threatens their very existence – and ours.” The new movie will also “go deeper into the histories of these Titans, their origins, and the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond while revealing the mythical battle that helped shape these extraordinary beings and bound them to humanity for all time.”
In the upcoming sequel, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kaylee Hottle will play the same characters they did in Godzilla vs. Kong. Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House will also be in the film’s ensemble cast.
The Monsterverse Is Coming To Streaming
Legendary is also bringing the MonsterVerse to television, with two projects in the works. Godzilla and the Titans will take place after the events of Godzilla (2014) and will “follow a family’s journey to unearth its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.”
The show was created by Chris Black and Matt Fraction and stars Anna Sawai, Ren Watabe, Kiersey Clemons, Kurt Russell, and Wyatt Russell, among others. The show will debut on Apple TV+. A Netflix anime-style series set on Skull Island is also in the works.
The MonsterVerse is still one of Legendary Entertainment’s best-performing properties, with all film episodes generating more than $100 million domestically and $375 million worldwide. The kaiju-centric cinematic universe began in 2014 with the reboot of Godzilla.
Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla: King of the Monsters were released in 2017 and 2019, respectively, before the two titular monsters met in Godzilla vs. Kong. The four films have earned a total of $1.950 billion at the global box office.
Godzilla and Kong are set to come out in theatres on March 15, 2024. It will be directed by Adam Wingard.
