Speculating About the Next MonsterVerse Movie…692 Views7 RepliesAdd A Reply
If the next MonsterVerse movie is a Kong sequel set in the Hollow Earth, the five questions that I have are…
1. What do you think the story will be about?
2. How will Kong be further developed?
3. How will Team Kong be further developed?
4. How will the Hollow Earth be further explored?
5. What monsters will we see?
Let me know your thoughts below!
I hope we get to see gorosaurus in the movie, he would make a great villain!
Hi Jack, you sound familiar..., maybe I'm just imagining things. I hope kong vs maybe something like a huge flying fire demon.
eu acho que poderia ser outros kongs ou godzillas talvez? tambem pode ser o gamera ou monstros dos antigos filmes de godzilla takvez atè a biolant.
Jack has been around for a while,
Ive honestly been thinking about the character development of Kong in GvK, which in my opinion has the weakest writing of MV
And i dint remember what Kongs Arc was in the film, i guess becoming king, but 5hat still leaves the whole family thing unresolved.
Kong's arc was about him finding a new home and asserting his dominance.
When Kong is initially taken off of Skull Island, he's unhappy and just wants to be returned to his home, later in the movie when he discovers the ancestral home of his kind in the Hollow Earth, he accepts it as his new home. It's also shown that he wants to find others of his kind which is shown when immediately enters the Hollow Earth after Jia tells him that "his family could be down there" as well as later when he enters the temple and calls out hoping to get a response and being upset when he doesn't get one. With the working title of the next film supposedly being "Son of Kong" it's highly likely that they'll explore the idea of Kong wanting to find others of his kind in the future.
At the same time it's shown that, despite the instinctual rivalry between his and Godzilla's species, Kong doesn't want conflict with Godzilla and just wants to be left alone, only fighting Godzilla to defend himself and his human companions, and being more than willing to retreat from the battle. However, when Godzilla destroys Kong's ancestral home, Kong decides that he's done putting up with Godzilla's crap and goes to stand up to him, refusing to submit to him even when close to death. That, along with helping to defeat Mechagodzilla, eventually leads to him earning Godzilla's respect, which finally ends the ancestral war between their species.
It's gonna be another GVK-like movie where it's an hour and forty minutes of Monke carnage. That's it.
In all honesty, we should get another Godzilla movie to give the big G a proper trilogy.
Here are my thoughts…
I think the main plot will revolve around another monster challenging Kong’s status as King of the Hollow Earth, while the secondary plot will revolve around Kong developing his relationship with Jia, and possibly forming a connection with another Kong (assuming more Kongs will be introduced). If Kong does meet another Kong, they’ll either be another member of his species, or belong to a subspecies of Ape Titans, much like how Doug was a member of a subspecies of Gojiras.
As for the human characters, I have a strong feeling that they aren’t going to be as much in the spotlight going forward. Based on how many casual moviegoers were happy that the human characters didn’t get as much time to shine as the monsters did in GVK, I wouldn’t be surprised if the monsters take the spotlight going forward. That’s not to say that we won’t get anymore human screentime or even character development. It’s just that their stories won’t be as important as the monsters’. This is just how the MonsterVerse has developed since G14. With each movie, as the monsters get more and more screentime, they become more well rounded and personified.
I definitely think we’ll see new biomes along with new creatures. I also think we’ll see variants of the Skullcrawlers and other Skull Island creatures. After all, we did briefly see red Leafwings flying around in the Hollow Earth in GVK, so I would’ve be surprised if we see different versions of the Skyer Buffalo, Mother Longlegs, and Sporemantis. We may even get to see the Shimidah, a scrapped monster from GVK that Team Kong were supposed to run into while traveling through the Hollow Earth, along with that giant Hellhawk that was shown in the GVK artbook.
Something else to consider is that the Iwis from Skull Island originally lived in the Hollow Earth before they were banished to the surface world with Kong’s species by the Gojiras. So I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that we’ll see more Iwis in the Hollow Earth, possibly even living with a tribe of other Kongs.
As for the main antagonist, I believe they’ll either be Camazotz or an original monster. If they turn out to be an original monster, I honestly don’t know what type they’ll be at the moment.
