Default Godzilla vs. Kong | March 31, 2021

I thought there was a thread for this already but the search only brought up a poll. So here you go...

Quote:
King Kong On Move To Warner Bros, Pre-Saging Godzilla Monster Matchup



EXCLUSIVE: In a movie move that portends a clash of giant monsters, Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull is moving his untitled Skull Island King Kong film to Warner Bros. This is being done to unite the property with Legendary’s other giant franchise, Godzilla. In what would be a pretty epic pairing, the Godzilla sequel that is in the works will be followed by a movie that pits the giant ape versus the giant fire breathing reptile. I’m told this is happening very quickly with moves going all the way to Japan, where Godzilla rights holder Toho is based. Legendary, which moved from Warner Bros to Universal, had developed the Skull Island film at the latter studio. It is unclear at the moment what Universal’s position will be, but I heard the studio move is being done because it is just easier to have all the pieces under one roof, something that Marvel Studios has done with superheroes like The Hulk. King Kong is in the public domain, while Legendary got the Godzilla rights from Toho.

The Kong: Skull Island film is casting quickly. Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston and Corey Hawkins are set and last I wrote about it, Samuel L. Jackson was in line to star, with Tom Wilkinson also offered a big role and John C. Reilly atop the list for another main role. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing a script by John Gatins and Max Borenstein, and they are eyeing a production start of late year or early 2016. Universal had been set to release the film March 10, 2017, with a Imax 3D a big part of the release plan. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produce with Mary Parent, with Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod exec producing. I’ll let you know how this one sorts itself, but I hear it’s happening.

Have always liked both franchises but not sure about this. Godzilla is so much bigger than Kong would there really be much of a fight. Seems to much would rather them be kept separate.

Wow. Interesting! I just posted a "I wish" in the Pacific Rim 2 thread about the creatures they face being King Ghidorah and Gigan with Godzilla showing up at the very end (leading to a crossover of PR3 and G3 down the road). I guess this puts a final nail in that hopeful coffin.

However, maybe they could use Skull Island as a place where Godzilla raises hi/her baby and the little badass Godzilla fights one of the King Kongs. I'd love to see that!

Kong is going to have to armor up or something.

300 foot tall, nuclear powered ancient alpha predator vs a 30 foot tall gorilla?


Super excited for both individual movies however.

This. Keep them separate. A tank would give Godzilla a harder time than Kong.

I smell bullshit, and it isn't even April. King Kong is most certainly not in the public domain. How many SyFy Original Kong movies would we have if that were true? King Kong vs. Sharknado, anyone?

Universal owns Kong. WB only has a stake in Legendary's Godzilla 2 (and presumably, Pacific Rim 2) because they did the original installments with Legendary. Legendary couldn't move Batman and Superman to Universal, and they can't move Kong to WB. Of course it's *possible* copious amounts of cash are changing hands to make this happen, but I highly doubt it.

Godzilla will die in the next film, but then it will actually be the smaller Godzilla Jr. that battles Kong in the third film.

There! Size problem solved!

Probably the worst idea for a movie in a long time. Kong wouldn't reach Godzilla's knees

People acting like the size difference can't easily be fixed.

Why not? He'd just be a smaller Godzilla, and then he'd be daddy-size again for the fourth outing.


Only problem is... how interesting will a Godzilla vs. Kong movie be after we'll have already had seen Godzilla vs. Ghidorah?
