If this does happen...

"How is Kong gonna be a match for Godzilla..."
"Kong is so small"
"Godzilla would just step on Kong"


Well you see :) There's this thing called writers, and they can make Kong however big they skreeonking want ;) You know, how they made Godzilla survive a nuke to the face. Or you know, exist. Or fire an atomic ray.

my thoughts exactly. We could see a completely beefed-up rebooted Kong and it could be really, really cool.

Just as Legendary's hopes for a giant monster revival rises, this news doom's it to fail.
Sadly, I must make you aware that anything I say is my opinion.

Contrary to popular belief, I did like Godzilla 2014

I thought people were over the fact that Godzilla lost to Kong in that movie. Guess not.

IIRC, Toho pushed for a KKvG remake in the 90's. Granted, I'm not sure if that was ever confirmed or if it was just a rumor.

They are generally very much against crossovers, but I think a Kong crossover would be one of few exceptions.

Shitty crossover though. Wasn't there only like one other Hero Zero comic?

Love this news. Godzilla and King Kong are the icons of giant monsters. I have watched the original at least once a year since 73. Always puts a smile on my face. Looking forward to new smiles!

People seem to be thinking this replaces GIII, which I doubt a lot; this'll likely be a spinoff movie. Something unrelated to the "main" timeline.

Same. A lot of people are forgetting that Toho still has a say in whether this happens or not. Last crossover in recent memory was 1977-1979 for Marvel Comics. They've been stingy with their property ever since.

I don't see anything we don't already know for sure here. Do we even know for sure Kong's distributor is changing? How is that even plausible? Universal owns Kong, don't they?
IIRC, Toho pushed for a KKvG remake in the 90's. Granted, I'm not sure if that was ever confirmed or if it was just a rumor.
It was on Toho Kingdom for many years and it's one of the many Cutting Room projects that has disappeared under mysterious circumstances, as did the Godzilla vs. Mechani-Kong film. Arbok might know something. I know Little Godzilla's Underground Adventure disappeared for years before we found out it was a hoax.

EDIT:
A lot of people are forgetting that Toho still has a say in whether this happens or not. Last crossover in recent memory was 1977-1979 for Marvel Comics. They've been stingy with their property ever since.
That example is beyond irrelevant. The production history of King Kong vs. Godzilla, by and large, had to do with a lot of Japanese people who really loved King Kong far more so than anything to do with a monster who was then largely seen as a washed-up has-been, not to mention Kong was an inspiration for Godzilla's original appearance. That's a pretty far cry from the more typical 'let's throw in Gamera for some reason' or 'let's toss in Pacific Rim or whatever' which usually involve Godzilla crossing over with what Toho would probably see as lesser properties.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.

Me too. I'm one of the few that does not give ONE poop about a new KK vs G movie.

i dont think kong would have to be the same size as godzilla to put up a good fight. i mean, its a gorilla vs a lizard, if kong were the same size he'd wipe the floor with godzilla. plus we already saw a muto take the atomic ray to its chest and still live, i think we can assume king skreeonking kong can do the same. im all for this

Actually the last crossover was in 1995 when Godzilla's resided stateside at Dark Horse Comics when he butted heads with Dark Horse's size changing hero, HERO ZERO.

For what it's worth, Godzilla showed up in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 in 2007, but that was partially Toho's own production.

I appreciate the anxiety some have expressed over this potential development, but I support it for the following reason:

How is a giant gorilla joining the Godzilla-verse any more outlandish than the generally approved inclusion of a giant pteranadon, a giant moth, and a space dragon?

It's not.

Furthermore, IF Kong is to be added, it probably wouldn't be until Godzilla 3 (or later), by which time the monster roster will have likely expanded to more than just Godzilla (unless Godzilla 2 has absolutely NO kaiju survivors at the end). Likewise, while him battling Godzilla would definitely be a plot point, it could also be in service of a much larger, multi-monster story. Imagine a Destroy All Monsters type movie where one of the monsters just happened to be Kong. It really isn't any crazier than bringing in Hedorah, Gigan, or Biollante (which is something I see people pitching here all the time).

Really, this could be the Legendary equivalent of Marvel getting Spider-man. It's not so much that they're totally revamping they're existing plans for him, as they are finding a way to include a classic character into a larger story.

* Also, with respect to Toho, considering they've tried to remake KK vs. G before and stand to make a ton of money off doing pretty much nothing, I'd be surprised if they shot it down.

I'm totally onboard with this if its in its own world not affiliated with Edward's G universe. If Skull Island is somehow in the KKvsG world, fine(kind of like Man of Steel and Batman vs Superman are in the same world but not Nolans Trilogy). If Skull Island turns out to be in Edwards world, they'll need a lot of explaining behind it for my 100% support... but I'm sure it could work somehow.

Toho probably didn't ok a co production with Universal because they have bad relations with them apparently. LP switched it over to WB and now Toho is probably 100% onboard with this now.

I'm hoping this just turns into a BONUS film not related to Skull Island or Edwards Trilogy.

dAll we can do now is wait for official confirmation. :huge:

But i think it is important to remember websites like Variety and Deadline wouldn't post articles based on rumors. Where there is smoke there is fire.

A Hollywood King Kong vs Godzilla could be a huge hit at the BO!

Also am I the only one who thinks there is an easy solution to making Kong as big as Godzilla?

The more I'm reading these articles the more I'm calling BS. One clickbait article spawning another clickbait article. It seems that a fan wrote them and is basing the article on the fact that Skull Island is moving from universal to Warner Bros.

I wouldn't mind this so much if it's completely separate from the Edwards trilogy, a spinoff in its own independent timeline.
I still wouldn't go see it, but at least then I wouldn't be concerned about it messing with the established universe.

Legendary has just shown Toho the path to a Marvel style interconnected ongoing global franchise. This is what they have long wanted. No way in hell they stop this. They would be mad to do so.

The other rumor associated with this is it will be set in the 70's. So halfway between Legendary's 1930's KK and their modern Godzilla 2014.
