A simple callback to the original King Kong vs. Godzilla or a suggestion Kong will actually lay the smack-down on Godzilla once again in the new Monsterverse Godzilla vs. Kong? ...Or both?! GvK Director Adam Wingard took to Instagram today to comment on the new release date, which we learned yesterday had been pushed back 8 months - landing the fourth Monsterverse installment a November 2020 release date instead of March. Accompanying the photo of Kong throwing Godzilla by his tail, Adam wrote "It's going to be an EPIC November!":

Despite most fans expecting the battle between Kong and Godzilla to be a relatively easy win for the King of Monsters, those involved with production keep suggesting Kong will surprise us all. Kong will after all, be considered the underdog in this fight, given Godzilla's impressive rap sheet so far. Yes, Kong has potential, but he will need to really bring some severe heat if he Hope's to stand to toe to toe with Godzilla himself.

As the official tagline suggests however, unlike the original, Godzilla vs. Kong (2020) will have a clear cut winner - One Will Fall. Which super Titan will claim victory? Let us know who your money is on in the comments!

I don't think Kong will win though, it just wouldn't make sense story wise, canon wise, or just from looking at either creature. If Kong wins, he'll be the new alpha or chaos will break out among the Titans again. I think they're just trying to make us think Kong might win so we'll actually be surprised if Godzilla wins. 


RodanMember1789 XPNov-26-2019 2:46 PM

Lets go Kong.


TitanosaurusMember616 XPNov-26-2019 3:40 PM

The usage of that picture is coincidence. Nothing more.


Gomi: Ninja Monster

BaragonMember251 XPNov-26-2019 4:24 PM

Personally, If Kong wins I think it would only be to prove a point. The novelization makes it sound like Kong couldn't care less about the outside world, he just wants those dang Skullcrawlers off his lawn. I'd postulate that the Titans showing up on his island aren't necessarily welcome, and Godzilla coming to impose his order even less so. Ergo, Kong would reject Godzilla's authority, surprise everyone by kicking his tail despite his disadvantages, then refuse the responsibilities of Alpha and go back to Skull Island, now with the status to make sure everyone leaves him alone.


BaragonMember161 XPNov-26-2019 5:25 PM

I agree with Gomi. Kong wants nothing to due with others. He wants to be by himself. He already stated during the Kotm, that he wants nothing with Titans, nor does he want Titans to do anything with him. And was probably their only warning.


GodzillaMember8212 XPNov-26-2019 8:52 PM

Hard to pick a desired winner since liking them both. If Kong wins and that means killing Godzilla, there would be no balance factor for Titans or humans-if Kong just wants to be left alone. In that regard, if Kong dies, so what. That is not stated lightly.

The image is the King Kong vs. Godzilla cover from the new Showa Era Criterion collection. He likely just posted the image because it's the latest (very cool) release and he likely picked it up too. "He's a fan," after all.


BaragonMember222 XPNov-26-2019 11:18 PM

 King Kong ain't got **** on Godzilla. Kong could break shin easy enough but Legendary is a real Godzilla that reminds me of my Lizard. I'm my Lizards Kong and it blows cuz he tries to kill me when he is on his throne when I try to feed him like every day. I even bow to him as the alpha but he still tries to smoke me and I love the guy so I evade or bleed. He is a real nice guy in my territory. I think he may have a Kong mentality of get the **** off my island. I respect Kong as the first King of the monsters from 33. In 33 however he ****ed with Trex. Could have got the girl out of there without hurting Trex and now the Dinosaur God has come for revenge in spirit. Hollywood has it in for Dragons and they will kill Kong after they kill us off. Ruthless mother****ers. Thanks for the monster verse but you all killed King Ghidorah and stabbed Rodan so I got no faith left in these folks. Daenerys lost 2 Dragons before they snowed her like trendy *******s. Lizzie got bunked over by George and the Rock. **** you Dwane.  Godzilla better win this **** or I'm done. Also I heard they have the true God Tiamat in the monsterverse now... and she serves Godzilla? Ok Godzilla would be a great mate for Tiamat rendering Dragon Lord hatchlings eternal but that is some bull**** if Kong wins period and if have our Dragons bow to the monkey it will be almost as bad as the old legend where they ****ed her over. It's time to evolve people. Kong and man are Godzilla's pets not the other way around. We would serve him well Dragon's thralls

GodzillaAdmin5112 XPNov-26-2019 11:48 PM

Well that was... something.


GodzillaMember8212 XPNov-26-2019 11:57 PM

Although I really like Kong, I think Godzilla's survival would be most important when considering the over all planet in that monster verse. We could live on without Skull Island but not the whole Earth with unruly creatures and irresponsible humans.


BaragonMember130 XPNov-27-2019 2:50 AM

I think they're reaching here. Anyway, I think the best outcome would be Godzilla winning, but not by killing Kong.


TitanosaurusMember616 XPNov-27-2019 4:19 AM

@Moldovan0731 Agreed. Perhaps I'm projecting, but here's the scenario I've had in my head for their fight to play out:

Godzilla and Kong meet for the first time for whatever cir***stances the movie provides. When they first meet, Godzilla doesn't really take Kong seriously. He's about chest-height to him, after all, and he doesn't really have any major super-powers. Piece of cake, right? But much to everyone's surprise, Kong actually beats Godzilla in this first round. He doesn't have any crazy powers, but he's still quite strong physically, is more agile than Godzilla, and utilizes tools such as boulders and, yes, trees. Goji realizes too late that he shouldn't have let his guard down, and ends up leaving beaten and shocked, and maybe just a tad embarrassed.

Then in their second big fight, Godzilla is a lot more careful. He now knows not to underestimate Kong, and goes all-out in this battle. We see the two using their strengths and weaknesses against each other. Kong's agility and tool-use, and Godzilla's atomic breath and heavy hitting tricks.

Eventually, after a lengthy battle that leaves both monsters beaten, bruised, and bloodied, Godzilla emerges the victor. Kong is still alive but defeated, and with no other choice, reluctantly bows to Godzilla, acknowledging him as the true Alpha.

Godzilla is silent for a moment...

...and then he bows BACK. He's come to respect Kong for his tenacity and determination in battle, even when the odds are stacked against him, and acknowledges him as not only a worthy opponent, but as a fellow Alpha.

And then they both go off and fight the inevitable bad-guy Titan.

BaragonMember478 XPNov-27-2019 4:53 AM

Everytime I see these posts and read some of the comments it makes me hope more and more for a Kong victory just to see the people lose their minds over it.


TitanosaurusMember926 XPNov-27-2019 5:52 AM

I love Godzilla with all my soul but I would never underestimate Kong. However this turns out, it'll be one hell of a fight.


TitanosaurusMember616 XPNov-27-2019 6:02 AM

KingKaijuGojira, My feelings exactly.

The Realist

Mothra LarvaeMember89 XPNov-27-2019 6:14 AM

Hold on.. On what planet will anyone be surprised by Kong winning? Kong never loses. He has been deemed the hero since day one. I personally think it sucks because we already saw Kong as the "good guy" in the original film. Godzilla fans always seem to get screwed over.

AnguirusMember1265 XPNov-27-2019 6:29 AM

Kong may be king of Skull Island, but Godzilla will always be King of the Monsters.


GodzillaMember8212 XPNov-27-2019 8:52 AM

The Realist Because Kong was nice to the damsel in distress in the first movie and was probably seen by people as being "more like them". 


TitanosaurusMember968 XPNov-27-2019 9:14 AM

I would still want Godzilla to win, but if the production team wants to surprise us with Kong winning the first round, then it's fine, as long as Godzilla wins the final round.

Please fix the double posts, Chris. Please. :)


BaragonMember125 XPNov-27-2019 9:32 AM

It doesn't suggest anything. As Gman said it's just from the new box set, Nothing more.


BaragonMember161 XPNov-27-2019 10:13 AM

Yeah, but here's the thing. Godzilla and Kong are Yin and Yang.

Kong is more agile and can use tools. However, he lacks a breath attack and lacks natural armor

Godzilla, on the other hand, has that. But can't do what Kong can do

I think that makes them even, in own their way.


Mothra LarvaeMember31 XPDec-03-2019 8:18 AM


Make this please


RodanMember1789 XPDec-03-2019 10:11 AM

I agree with Jurassic kaiju. I want Kong to bow, then Godzilla bows back.


TitanosaurusMember616 XPDec-03-2019 10:14 AM


If I'm disappointed with GvK, I just might. I'm actually working on a rewrite of KOTM right now (not that I was disappointed with it, I just thought some parts could use some improvement).
