The title for the upcoming monster mash sequel, Godzilla vs. Kong 2, has seemingly been revealed courtesy of several production gifts. Images of which have now made their way online. Thus, the sequel to last year’s blockbuster movie will be titled simply…wait for it…Godzilla and Kong. The title suggests that the movie will once again feature both the legendary titans Godzilla and King Kong, only this time, they will not be at each other’s throats.
While there had been rumors that Godzilla vs. Kong 2 would contain the words “Son of Kong” in there somewhere, the studio has instead gone for something much simpler. This title reveal comes following the recent revelation that the working title for Godzilla and Kong was Origins. Which, much like the newly revealed official title, we can also garner some clues. So, it sounds like Godzilla and Kong will find the two monsters once again working together, much like they did during the Godzilla vs. Kong finale, with the plot delving into the backstories of both characters.
