Godzilla x Kong's Adam Wingard has "really cool ideas" for third movie

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and Godzilla vs Kong director Adam Wingard has teased that he's got plenty of things he'd love to do in a third film, should it happen.

At the premiere of the monster mash-up sequel, the director was asked by Deadline what the possibility was of making another one.

"Only time will tell," he told the publication. "I think the seductive thing as a filmmaker when you've done two movies is to complete it as this trilogy — that's always what everybody expects.

"We'll see. It really depends on how the movie does. I think that there's a lot of really cool ideas we have [about] where we would go with it. I'm open to it and excited for what the future brings."

A new movie from Wingard would be the sixth instalment in the MonsterVerse overall, but would be the third movie to include Godzilla and Kong.

Digital Spy reviewed Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire and called it "the most enjoyable MonsterVerse movie yet."

"It might not be flawless, but it's a consistently entertaining, huge-scale blockbuster and one where it feels like everybody involved finally understood the assignment," our review reads.

"In his second MonsterVerse outing, director Adam Wingard's confidence at working in this world is clear, both tonally and visually. It extends to the storytelling where Wingard is happy to have lengthy dialogue-free stretches, relying on the impressive VFX for entirely visual storytelling.

"It's obvious from the opening sequence that the vibe is different here. There's a sense of fun and mischief that was missing at times from previous movie."

Not every outlet enjoyed it as much, and the film's Rotten Tomatoes score (which is the percent of reviews that are generally positive) is currently sitting in the 50s.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is out in cinemas now.
