...could possibly be Son of Kong.

https://www.ign.com/articles/godzilla-vs-kong-director-adam-wingard-may-return-to-legendarys-monsterverse-for-son-of-kong

"While the future of Legendary's MonsterVerse hasn't been officially revealed as of yet, sources have said that Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard is in talks to return for another film that could possibly be Son of Kong.As reported by THR, Legendary is "quietly taking steps to stretch the series into one or more installments" following the success of Godzilla vs. Kong.

...

However, there is no timetable for Wingard's return as he has already committed to directing both a feature film adaptation of the animated television series Thundercats and a sequel to 1997's Face/Off, which starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage.

THR also notes that Wingard has been very involved in "creating Godzilla vs. Kong set-pieces as well as the world-building for the movie’s Hollow Earth plotline." They've also been discussing plenty of ideas for what this new film would be, and Son of Kong is one of these that is being "floated internally."

1933's Son of Kong was originally a sequel to King Kong that was released nine months after the original. The story picked up a month after Kong's destructive time in New York City."

I'd love this, and I think the MV will continue for sure with the money and overall reaction to GvK. I think a Kong centered Hollow Earth film is the natural next step for the franchise, as Godzilla has been in three MV movies thus far and it'd be good to give him a break before a come back.

I'd like if we got this, then one more Godzilla movie and then a big Destroy All Monsters/Final Wars kind of movie to wrap things up. Though I'm also no opposed to the series just running for ages either.

We've seen 0 female Kongs and now we're led to believe Kong already clappin cheeks? I can't suspend my disbelief that far.

I was never a Kong fan. I might pass on that one.

That's up to Toho whether they want to extend the licencing agreement, as Godzilla vs. Kong was the last film Legendary had the rights to use the character in.

I'm down with more Kong. Both films with Kong were better than the two films without. Perhaps because the character shows more human emotion idk, but I f***ing loved Skull Island, and I really liked GvK, yet somehow felt disappointed with KOTM while I loved Godzilla.

I was thinking more along the lines of him finding an orphan member of his species in the Hollow Earth and adopting him. Maybe even battle an evil Kong.
