The epic MonsterVerse continues with a confirmed sequel to this year’s blockbuster, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. Warner Bros. recently unveiled its upcoming slate, revealing that the follow-up will premiere in 2027.

This news comes alongside the announcement of a new director taking the helm. While details are scarce beyond the release date, Warner Bros. remains committed to the MonsterVerse. The franchise continues to be a box office powerhouse. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire dominated theaters, securing an impressive $80 million opening weekend and crushing its competition with a global gross of $567.6 million, far exceeding its estimated $135 million budget.

Adam Wingard, who directed the last two MonsterVerse entries, Godzilla vs. Kong and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, won’t return for the next chapter. But according to THR, the story will reportedly pick up where “The New Empire” left off. This will surely excite fans who are eager to see how the complex relationship between Godzilla and Kong continues to evolve.

The previous film, Godzilla vs. Kong,  established a fragile truce between Godzilla and Kong. New Empire sees Kong now ruling Hallow Earth while Godzilla maintains the balance between monsters and humans on the surface. However, their newfound peace is shattered by the arrival of a terrifying new enemy – the Scar King. This ancient, giant beast awakens from his imprisonment deep within Hollow Earth to threaten the world.

While plot details remain under wraps, The Hollywood Reporter hints at “an assortment of other Titans” in the upcoming film. This exciting prospect opens the door for a wider exploration of the MonsterVerse and the introduction of new legendary creatures to challenge our favorite titans.

Get ready for the return of Godzilla and Kong on March 26, 2027, because the MonsterVerse is far from over. Witness the next chapter in the ongoing battle between titans and witness the fate of humanity hanging in the balance!
