The ideas of the director
In the event that the MonsterVerse is continued, Adam Wingard has plans beyond Godzilla vs Kong. “The clear starting point that we started, exploring the Hollow Earth, I think there is much more to do there. This is a prehistory of Planet Earth, where all the Titans come from. We uncover some mystery in Godzilla vs. Kong, things I want to see resolved, explored, and taken to the next level. If I get the chance, I know what I'll do. It's up to Warner Bros and Legendary, if they have an appetite, "he commented.
