If the MonsterVerse continues, will Godzilla die in a future film?

It's no doubt that the MonsterVerse has many fans excited right now, especially me. I for one can't wait to see all the hardcore fights that are going to happen in Godzilla 2 & Godzilla vs. Kong, but if the MonsterVerse continues, will Godzilla continue on?
This is a question I've asked myself on the second time I went to see Kong: Skull Island, since I focused more attention to the story, but I definitely got major vibes from a few lines that was said by Hank Marlow when he was talking of and mourning his friend Gunpei. Marlow says that in the beginning that they were enemies that were determined to kill each other, one of the reasons being the war that was going on at the time. It all started out by which Marlow saw Gunpei's plane crash onto the beach, prompting Marlow to head towards him and to begin firing his pistol at him, but missing all shots. Gunpei pulls out his pistol, but Marlow immediately runs the other way, resulting in a chase to begin. Gunpei fires his pistol, but misses the shots and when Marlow reaches a cliff, Gunpei is right behind him and the two begin to fight on whether who lives and who dies. Just when it seemed Marlow was about to be killed, two massive hands appear, grabbing onto the cliff edge, followed by a huge body appearing and ending in a roar with the reflection of the monster seen through Marlow's eye. Though of course the monster is Kong.
Marlow and Gunpei would later become sworn friends because of the dangers on the island, because they were the bigger threat. No matter what, Marlow and Gunpei would always have each other's backs....that is until one of the dangers, the Skullcrawlers, killed Gunpei. I believe that during that certain scene when Marlow was talking about Gunpei, though it's not confirming, but foreshadowing that Godzilla and Kong do team up in the future, but somewhere along that future, Godzilla and Kong do become allies....yet somewhere in that future, the mighty King will die.
Marlow represents the Western World who in turn is Kong. Gunpei represents the Eastern World who in turn is Godzilla. East meets West, Godzilla and Kong, the two greatest iconic giant monsters in the history of the world. There was also another particular scene that I believe is foreshadowing that will show Kong will give Godzilla one heck of a monster fight. When the young soldier asks Marlow who he believes would win in a fight, the Tigers or the Cubs. Marlow answers to the Tigers (Godzilla) because the Cubs (Kong) wouldn't stand a chance because they're to small. Marlow than proceeds to say that wait till the Cubs grow up because they'll be fully capable of handling themselves against their opponents since Kong is small, although not to us humans, and young still, but once he reached at his physical peak, Godzilla will be in for a fight.
For some strange apparent reason, that's what I felt when Marlow was talking about Gunpei. I actually believe that if the MonsterVerse continues, Godzilla will die in a future film and Kong could carry on Godzilla's legacy in keeping the balance of the world. If Godzilla does die however, his death needs to be memorable, honorable, with special purpose and meaning, because Godzilla has only died twice in total and both those deaths had what I mentioned in my opinion. He can't just die and than come back alive later on like so many other fictional characters, one example being Superman because if he does, than his deaths would just lose meaning and nobody would care for it anymore. His death needs to remain permanent like the previous two. If the MonsterVerse does continue on, I hope WB & Legendary take note of what I wrote.
What do you think? If the MonsterVerse does continue, do you believe Godzilla might die in a future film? Let me know in the comment section.
