MonsterVerse Writer Has An Amazing Idea For The Next Movie

No matter how in tune you are with the entertainment world these days, you've more than likely picked up on the increased popularity of shared media franchises. To date, arguably the most successful of the bunch of Disney and Marvel Studios' Marvel Cinematic Universe — a now 13-year-old storytelling venture that connects various movies, TV shows, shorts, and more into one massive continuity. Others have attempted to replicate this success with their own recognizable properties to varying results, with Legendary Pictures' MonsterVerse quickly becoming one of the most fruitful of the bunch.

The MonsterVerse kicked off in 2014 with director Gareth Edwards' "Godzilla," which reintroduced the famed beast to Western audiences and set the stage for future films. Three years later, a prequel titled "Kong: Skull Island" hit theaters to great acclaim and indicated to the powers that be that they were taking steps in the right direction. 2019 saw the emergence of "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" and 2021 showcased "Godzilla vs. Kong," and the series is certain to keep going full steam ahead in the years to come.

Given the wealth of famous characters in existence and yet to be introduced, monstrous showdowns yet to take place, and inventive tales yet to be told, the MonsterVerse has a bright future ahead of it. Bearing this in mind, one writer who has left their mark on the big screen universe hopes to take a bold risk in its next entry.

All monsters, all the time

When looking over the current collection of MonsterVerse releases, one doesn't have to search for long to notice how much strong talent has helped bring these movies to life at the movies. The likes of Tom Hiddleston, Millie Bobby Brown, Charles Dance, and several other talented names have turned in good work from within the massive shadows of their Kaiju co-stars. At the same time, let's be honest with ourselves here: few have become invested in this series because of the human characters. Fans love their hulking monsters, something prolific MonsterVerse screenwriter Max Borenstein is well aware of.

In an interview with Slashfilm (via Screen Rant), Borenstein shared his thoughts on a MonsterVerse installment devoid of humans, calling it "amazing." He goes on to explain, "Given the success of Godzilla vs. Kong, I'm kind of hoping in whatever the next phase Legendary decides to do that we would see that." Borenstein also likens this concept to "Mad Max: Fury Road" — a project that didn't rely on relatable human characters and excessive dialogue to create a memorable viewing experience. "I think it's totally possible to do that with the absolute minimum amount of human characters and really characterize the creatures."

As of this writing, there's little concrete information regarding the next MonsterVerse project floating around the internet. All we know is that it could potentially be 100% monster-oriented and, as a result, one of the most intriguing additions to the canon so far.
