Tentatively, according to Legendary, it's just called Godzilla vs. Kong. (Source) Apparently there's some rights issue about titling the MonsterVerse movies with "King" in front of Kong's name.

My understanding is that Warner Brothers technically has the rights to the movie versions of King Kong (because they own Turner Entertainment who purchased RKO who originally owned those rights, but those were technically only for the original and the squeal, so in the end I have no idea) and thus them working with Universal is what made it possible to have a King Kong Movie.

I assumed they are leaving out the "King" part just to avoid any legal issues. Could DDL bring up an issue since they did the last "King" Kong movies in the 70s? I know they technically only own the name for the 70s remakes, but maybe they could still make a stink?

The whole legal situation regarding King Kong is just a confusing mess. Legendary and WB seem hesitant to use "King Kong" in the titles for their films, which is as previously stated most likely to avoid any possible legal issues. However, Legendary and WB have called Kong "King Kong" in some of the film's official marketing and press releases, and in Japan the film is titled King Kong: Giant God of Skull Island. I assume it's a case where Legendary and WB are just being cautious, or they're only not allowed to use "King Kong" in the films' English titles.

The DDL situation regarding Kong is long-resolved and I doubt anyone wants to revisit it. Especially considering that the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group is now defunct, and the company's two Kong films are being distributed via Paramount and Universal currently. Warner Bros. has even released the 1976 remake in a double pack with the 1933 film in the past.

Godzilla's got the size, the toughness, the strength, the atomic breath, the claws and teeth and the powerful tails, but he seems to lack the agility of Kong.  If Kong were Godzilla's size, with his quickness, might, jumping ability and intelligence to grab anything handy to use in battle, he might manage to grab onto Godzilla's jaws to try to rib them apart, but then Godzilla would release his atomic breath to fry Kong's hands and catch his hair on fire and eventually consume him in the atomic fire.  Kong would have a disadvantage if he fought Godzilla on dry land.  If they were close to water, Kong might dive in it to rid himself of the fire but Godzilla was an expert swimmer as well, so he could swim fast and use his tail to smash Kong silly.  The only way Kong might have a chance was to smash Godzilla with a part of a building or use something sharp to stab Godzilla with.  He might go for Godzilla's eyes as well.  Ha ha!
