    Report: MonsterVerse Births Godzilla vs. Kong Sequel, Son of Kong
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard is reportedly in talks
    to helm the next MonsterVerse film from Legendary, which is
    reportedly called Son of Kong. While many Legendary insiders
    thought the company would begin to wind down the MonsterVerse
    franchise after Godzilla vs. Kong, the company seems to be going
    in the opposite direction according to a report from the
    Hollywood Reporter.

    According to the report, Legendary is looking to take steps to
    stretch out the series into one or more installments, with
    Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard in line to return for
    another film. One potential title for the next installment being
    floated internally in the company is Son of Kong.

    As of now, no official timetable or information is known for the
    future of the franchise, but should Wingard return, he'll likely
    have a hand in how things go. Wingard was said to be very
    involved in creating some of the Godzilla vs. Kong set pieces, as
    well as building out the world and plot of the film. Wingard
    returning would also mark the first return of a director to the
    MonsterVerse project since the start of it, as every film has had
    different directors attached.

    Godzilla vs. Kong launched earlier this year, grossing
    $386 million on a $170 million budget.

    Yep ...

    Lady Kong
    Lady Kong is a female giant ape Kaiju and the mate of
    King Kong in the 1986 film, King Kong Lives.
    <https://godzilla.fandom.com/wiki/Lady_Kong>

    That film also had Baby Kong ...

    Baby Kong
    Baby Kong naturally looks like an infant gorilla,
    only he stands about the same height as a normal
    adult gorilla.
    <https://godzilla.fandom.com/wiki/Baby_Kong>

    Plus there is also already been a son in the 1933 sequel "Son of Kong" ...

    Little Kong
    Little Kong is King Kong's son from The Son of Kong.
    <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_Kong>


    And, according to the MonsterVerse, Kong also has deceased parents, so
    there's a whole family line of giant apes. :-)
