#ContinueTheMonsterverse Trends On Twitter

For a while Sunday, #ContinueTheMonsterverse trended on Twitter, with both Jordan Vogt-Roberts (director of 2017’s Kong: Skull Island) and the official Legendary account chiming in.

Will the impressive performance of Godzilla vs. Kong, and the clear interest in the franchise, mean the Monsterverse will continue?

Who’s to say? The future of the Monsterverse has apparently been in question ever since the (I guess) lukewarm performance of King of the Monsters. Toho’s deal with Warner Bros. and Legendary also only went through 2020, with GvK releasing in 2021 only after being delayed. So it’s unclear if that deal will continue.

According to Deadline, GvK’s 5-day opening has reached $48.5 million. WarnerMedia also confirmed, without any hard numbers, that Godzilla vs. Kong absolutely crushed it on their streaming service HBO Max. As EVP and General Manager of WarnerMedia Direct-to-Consumer Andy Forssell said:

“The HBO Max audience has spoken very clearly and loudly: they love this film and are watching it more than once. Comparing audience metrics in the first four days since its release, Godzilla vs. Kong had a larger viewing audience than any other film or show on HBO Max since launch.”

Well, here’s to more Godzilla and Kong films!

Edit: For some reason, my brain crossed the streams and I said Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed 2014’s Godzilla. That was obviously Gareth Edwards. Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed Kong: Skull Island (which I should know because I literally just rewatched it). ごめんね!
