What do you want the new Kong movie to be like?1,585 Views17 RepliesAdd A Reply
Rumors going around that Kong will get another movie. The title Son of Kong is moving around, but that’s just a working title. What do you guys want the new Kong movie to be about? I know the most obvious is Kong: Hollow earth where he explores his new Kingdom, but could always go deeper into detail about specific plot points and whatnot. Also, what kind of monsters do you want to see Kong fight in it? Has to be a theropod Kaiju, it’s a classic staple and maybe a bear Kaiju to pay homage to Son of Kong because I doubt it will be made. Think one thing everyone wants is no help at all during the fights. Just two monsters going at it and one victorious.I also want to ditch the axe because he barely used it and he ain’t never needed one before to kill monsters.
Hopefully it isn't just Kong getting his butt kicked. I want his friendship with Jia to be expanded upon, and I also want Kong to fight either Gorosaurus but if not Goro, than Rhedosaurus (AKA The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms).
Well, they'll have to explain a lot about how Kong ends up having a son. Are we to assume Hollow Earth houses other Kong species? If so that opens up a lot more doors. So I guess my expectations is an elaborate exploration of Hollow Earth above all else.
@sonictiger, yeah. GvK just had him lose the whole movie and need help. I want this movie to fix that. Kong was said to be this apex predator, and alpha titan, and this Kong movie needs to show that where GvK failed. But it’s not all about the fights though they shouldn’t skimp on them at all. I want to dive deeper into Kong’s history. Jia is definitely a major character as she is who Kong cares about the most.
They should also bring back some KSI characters
Maybe the Dr. Houston , but everyone else is not with Monarch. I would like for the Dr to come back and connect with Kong. Show Kong’s intelligence by having him remember a friendly face even though it was years ago. Not to mention he was the one that really pushed the hollow earth theory and proved it back in K:SI. I’m sure he would love to be down there and see what all his years of research has lead to.
@Chris, yeah. That’s why I doubt they will do son of Kong. Just really doesn’t make sense for the most part after making it such a big deal that he is the last of his kind. Rather have it be more just Kong and team exploring and finding out the origins and evolution of the titans along with Kong’s people history. A real deep dive into who is King Kong and how he came to be. Maybe an explication that will properly explain his role in the monsterverse is as it seems Godzilla and the other titans have clear roles in restoring nature and Kong is just there.
Alright, maybe a bit of an out-there idea but here me out. Megalon!
Imagine what if in ancient prehistory some civilizations remained in the Hollow Earth and evolved into their own subspecies of humans. Maybe these civilizations used to warship the Kong species, but after they went extinct they found a new god-like figure in another Hollow Earth creature like Megalon.
Based on Megalon's previous Role and Origin and seeing as we're likely going to explore more of the Hollow Earth in the next Kong movie, I think it could make for a pretty cool story! I know Megalon isn't really related to Kong in any way, but with a connected universe as the MonsterVerse, I think it could be cool to see characters from different franchises crossover (Similarly to how Kong was originally supposed to be in Ebirah: Horror of the Deep instead of Godzilla).
But more on topic, I do hope Kong goes back to the more brutal R-rated action of Skull Island. I think it really fits the character and makes his movies distinct from the other Monsterverse movies!
Long live the king...
I agree @YeOldFossil.
Btw, I just now noticed the signature setting in my profile. :)
Yes! Megalon would be a perfect addition to the series! They've already set up the the idea for monsters like him, so he would fit in perfectly.
Plus I always thought Megalon was a cool underrated kaiju, I think he should return to the series and get a second chance.
(I was going to type in i would like to see a kong on skull island movie but then i remembered that already exits lol)
A random title I have for the next Kong movie is Kong: Return to Skull Island. The plot goes: Warbats escape the hollow earth into skull island and start killing off the wildlife, including skull island's apex predators, the Skullcrawlers. After finding his new home in the hollow earth, Kong must return to skull island to eliminate the alien threat wreaking havoc upon the planet. As Kong journeys through Skull Island, we see flashbacks of him with his parents, and the tragedies that happened between their species and the Skullcrawlers.
Not really big on Toho monsters showing up in a Kong movie. They come at a pretty penny and have contracts that must be met. Not to mention that also means Toho will have some involvement in the movie and must be pleased. Maybe Megalon could be teased, but that’s all I really see happening. Would rather have Kong face new unique enemies to him forming up his own little gallery of antagonist. Maybe give him some monster alies too that will help when a powerful enemy too strong for Kong to solo comes in. Would love for Kong to have his own special Mothra of sorts that helps out. Not a mothra or battra, but partner that helps Kong like Mothra does Godzilla.
warbats arent aleins.
I meant aliens as like invasive species
