Godzilla v King Kong confirmed?

Godzilla v King Kong confirmed?

A report from THR has announced that Kong Skull: Island is no longer being backed by Universal Pictures and has moved to Warner Bros. This huge news seemingly came as a surprise to many whom presumed that Universal, whom built the King Kong theme park attraction and distributed Peter Jacksons 2005 remake of the classic 1933, owned the production and/or distribution rights to goliath ape. In actuality it seems as though the property was in the public domain, according to US law.

What makes this news of huge interest to Godzilla fans is reports that are suggesting that the top secret organisation Monarch, which featured in Gareth Edwards 2014 big screen adaptation of Toho's Godzilla, will also feature in the forthcoming Kong: Skull Island; adding weight to the rumors that the two movie titans may face off against each other in a future crossover movie.

It appears that Legendary producer Thomas Tull's desire to see the two goliaths together on the big screen, again, may be the reason as to why Kong: Skull Island has moved To Warner Bros., as it has been reported that Universal Pictures were unhappy at the feasibility of the idea of a crossover when considering the vast size difference between the two creatures whereas Warner Bros. were unhappy at the prospect of a Godzilla element appearing in a Universal themed King Kong movie.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures can not only envision a means to see the two movie monsters fight against each other but have hinted at the possibility of a collaboration between the two, though what opponent they will be facing remains to be seen, especially when considering the bad news now facing Pacific Rim Maelstrom.

I think they did this entire thing for the simple reason to include Monarch.

This Must Happen! They're just teasing us. It's a big money opportunity. It won't make sense not to do it.

That might sound good to us, but maybe not for the crew behind Kong: Skull Island. As far as i understand, this means they will have to make changes to their film that they might not have planned, or wanted.

This isnt necesarrily that good of a thing. We dont know how this might affect future Godzilla films

If I remember right, at least one of the conditions Toho created for an outside company to use their license is that Godzilla must survive. So it seems pointless to make them battle. To me anyway.

In any case, I trusr Legendary to do this right but none the less feel this is has a high likelihood of going into poor storytelling. I hope they can create a necessity for this fight, because otherwise the sole necessity would be for the companies to involved to get paid and that will likely result in a film that feels forced. But who knows. Maybe all the G films from this point forward will suffer from this same problem. I'm most hopeful that Anno's film will be amazing.

I'm still waiting for an official word from Legendary.

This is all still going by the word of mouth and pure speculation. We still really don't know if this is true or not.

 

And if it is, is this really the best path to take either series? Skull Island was set to be a prequel to King Kong. If this happens, it changes everything the crew was going for.

Not to mention it totally distrupting that realm of reality Gareth was going for with the Legendary Godzilla series and adding multiple plot holes to be filled in that storyline.

It just seems to disrupt a major amount of things just for the sake of seeing the two fight again.

In all honesty, I'd rather see Destoroyah or Biollante fight Godzilla in the third one. It just makes more sense than suddenly upping the size of Kong again to make this thing feasable.

how does that even work ? why don't they do their reseach before spewing out nonsense ? but OF COURSE it's Hollywood making so many shit movies one after another, "hell! why not make a Godzilla vs King Kong movie, they don't realize that Godzilla is 5-10 times TALLER than King Kong, HELLOOOO ?!

Well they already made this movie in 60s, and they did they obvious thing back then which was make Kong the same size as Godzilla. It worked for the film.

If they are really considering doing this, than they should just a do a new Kong for it in the same fashion, one thats not 25 ft tall...but 2-300 feet tall.
