I could almost see Ted Elliot trying to revive his old Gryphon

I'd be okay with that. Honestly it's perfectly usable given they are implying Ghidorah is an alien.

I’m praying that this will be the case.

I hope this happens! It'd be awesome to bring an unused kaiju back!

Why does that sound like something Roger Corman would make?

I'd love to see something like that happen! Have the Gryphon be another very powerful Titan asleep under Skull Island, and waking it up is what leads to the third act in Hong Kong. It would be perfectly fitting if a plot to destroy Skull Island and kill all the Titans on it utterly fails, just releasing an even more powerful monster...wouldn't even be the first time something like that has happened in one of these movies, either. :)

I'd rather have Gryphon be a hybrid created by the Titan anarchists.

Technically wouldn't the Gryphon be owned by Sony?

Gryphon's not going to happen, it's going to be an OC monster.

Not really. It’s a mythological creature. Plus they never used it. I doubt they’d even notice at this point.
anyway, yeah, macaroni.

They wouldn't be able to use ideas and features that the Gryphon in the script has so it would need to be completely different.

That may depend on whether or not the rights to the character have defaulted back to the screenwriters. Many times there will be clauses in the contract where the rights to the script and all the original ideas/content/characters in it revert back to the writers if the studio doesn't utilize it within a set period of time, usually something like 15 or 20 years. My understanding is that it's fairly common for veteran writers-for-hire to do this as they may years later take the script or novel they wrote for a corporate franchise, strip out their original content, and revise it into a standalone script or novel unrelated to the franchise it was originally written for.

If that's the case, the writers would've been able to recycle the character for another script without having to get either Sony or Toho's permission once the rights reverted since they created it.

He looks significantly older to me...?

Not that it really matters, since this probably is not at all representative of how he'll look.

I hope not... maybe it’s just a place holder.

Something just looks off about that Kong to me but probably just the pic itself and not the design

Well to counter supercharged Godzilla, Ghidorah mites I to a power plant and supercharges himself with electricity. Reminds me a lot of Toho Kong

I’m banking on ether Kong getting Ghidorah’s powers or someone gonna become Monster X with Ghidorah’s dna
