About Kong in the MonsterVerse
Posted Apr-15-2017 6:39 AM
So in just about every King Kong movie, Kong eventually dies in the end. However, it's slightly different with the newest film. In Skull Island, Kong doesn't kick the bucket. This is due to the fact that he will have to fight Godzilla in 2020. But what if after that movie, Kong...dies?
I had a similar idea about this. What would happen is in a film after GVK, Kong would be captured by human and brought to New York City, either for the purpose of studying him or exposing him to the world. Kong would then break out from containment of course, and then he would run loose through the city. But it would eventually end with Kong being hit with so many firearms that he dies, but not before saving the human protagonist of the film, whoever that is. Then, society has to deal with the fact that they killed an innocent creature. Fast forward a few years, and we get Son of Kong, when explorers going to Skull Island find a new Kong - which is related to the original. Then that Kong fully grows up to replace his father, and the cycle is complete.
The only problem with this is that Kong seems to be the last of his kind, and, as I have said before, there suddenly being another one would require an explanation that I'm not sure could be properly provided.
What do you guys think? Do you think Kong will die? If so, what do you think will happen after that? Let me know in the comments below!

I don't think Kong will die. Godzilla seems to be the more likely one, if that ever happens. I've always pictured this Kong to have a brother, like Gaira and Sanda. Before the movie came out, my theory was that Kong had a brother that hated and despised Kong because of who he is. On a certain tv spot where Marlow says, "That's the big one", and it shows Kong with explosions in the background at night, I though that would've been a bigger brother of Kong who was finally ready to kill him. But I was wrong.
But if he were to die, I don't think another Kong could take his place because there's already Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan to protect the Earth, if any of them survive. I have a theory on how Kong could meet Godzilla and I'd love to hear your opinion on it, because you've been posting some interesting things to talk about lately.

I don't think Godzilla seems very likely to die either thematically or due to studio politics. Kong only seems more likely due to his track record, but then again I have to wonder how many movies Universal is allowing Legendary to use the character for. Clearly they worked out Kong: Skull Island and Godzilla vs. Kong, but beyond that? I wonder if Universal is kicking themselves for not keeping Skull Island so they could get a cut of it.
