I'm absolutely fine with this. Godzilla hunches anyway

Destoroyah. Give more of a meaning to the Oxygen Destroyer in KOTM.


Destroyah all the way.

It's called Monsterverse, not Mechaverse. There's nothing set up in GKOTM that foreshadows Mecha G, but there's plenty to herald the Big D. I'll bet Geeds decapitated head is genetically tinkered with to create a supermonster. And as already mentioned, the OD weapon's appearance in 2019 perfectly sets up Destroyah's arrival in 2020. Way more interesting than another mecha scenario since we've already seen that in Pacific Rim. Also, I love how Destroyah gets on so many nerves in the fandom. Once the GA learns that an endgame monster will be featured in GvsK, even they will know the stakes will be higher and that hype could rival GKOTM's. One look at Legendary's Destroyah design would instantly sell tickets.

Anyway, if it ends up being Mechagodzilla, that's fine but I'll be considerably less hyped for GvsK if that's the case.

What if there's another superpredator Titan that used to hunt both Godzillas and Kongs?

They already did that with the MUTO Prime, rather they not do it again. Plus with MechaGodzilla and whatever Jonah plans to do with Ghidorah’s head, they seem sufficient in villains.

I prayed Sandra wouldn’t catch a whiff, talk about Endgame....just gross.

Honestly, I wouldn't mind if they had Godzilla grow even further to an even 400 feet (121.92 meters), with Kong an even 300 feet (91.44 meters).

That's pretty much the same height difference as with these:

Kong being 75% of Godzilla's height/roughly at Godzilla's shoulder-to-collarbone area is perfect.

Now this is an idea I can get behind. Maybe it can be some sort of large heavily armored monster like Unkalos and Akantor from monster hunter. Something that is a complete juggernaut compared to the two.

I think they will do that, except it’ll be a hybrid; at least that’s what everything indicates thus far.

I guess MBB will have a very prominent role in GvK. Sh describes her character as “becoming a woman” and “brave”. Probably does something really major.

Having now seen KOTM, I'm going to be very skeptical of any "leak" that features Rodan in any prominent way. The way the film ends and the info provided in the film's credits makes me think he'll have no more than a cameo at best in GvK.

I guess they really wanted to round off the decimals in meters thus not giving us full 400 feet or 300 feet, the difference is really marginal tho.

I don't want Godzilla or King Kong to be overshadowed by any other monsters or mech. I just want it o be about them and them only like in the first film.

They set up Kong as a rival alpha to Godzilla

We'll need to have more of a discussion about it after more people see it, but aside from the post-credit scene - which could literally mean anything, and may not even be related to GvK - there's really not much indication of there being any other monsters really involved. The end credits set up why Godzilla and Kong are going to fight, and suggest the plot is going to revolve around exploring the Hollow Earth. IMO, the end credits also imply that Rodan and Mothra probably won't play much if any role, at most we might get cameos from them I think. If there really is going to be a third monster for the two to team up against, there was no obvious hint as to who that would be unless you count the post-credit scene (which, IMO, is actually hinting toward what happens next AFTER GvK).

So does it hint in the credits that Mothra left behind another egg? I know Rodan ends up making it out in the end.

Rodan's in Fiji
The egg is implied to belong to Mothra

Yes, there's a news clipping reporting a mysterious giant egg being discovered and speculating it belongs to Mothra.

As Godzilla2000zero said, Rodan ends up in Fiji. While your first thought is probably "Oh, that's very near Skull Island, isn't it?", this info is given alongside headlines talking about all the monsters migrating to Skull Island. Rodan is the only one they specify who DOESN'T go to Skull Island, he instead makes a new nest in a volcano in Fiji.

I may be way off base, but I'm taking that to be a hint that Rodan's not really going to play much of a role in GvK.

we will all think that kong will look quite different to how he looked in skull island? I mean he was a teen then... hopefully he has some grey hair and more scars.

Nah that would be too similar to Jackson's version to be honestly I prefer a Kong at his prime

I think he'll look more full grown and filled out. I've a suspicion there's going to a young upstart vs. old veteran dynamic between the two in the next movie.

(Un)Fortunately, the studio's been very clear that Godzilla and Kong wouldn't be alone:
The Hollywood Reporter wrote: But a source close to Tull says Legendary is confident it can come up with a rationale to explain how Kong and Godzilla can do battle — and possibly become allies.

Adam Wingard wrote:It’s a massive monster brawl movie. There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other...

And now with SAYAKA's predictions proven correct (again), GVK is more-and-more looking to be the DESTROY ALL MONSTERS movie-finale Gareth Edwards originally intended, with Godzilla and Kong fighting each other alongside various Titans for dominance, in which one will "win", until allying to battle MechaGodzilla, likely the Titan-killer conspiracy the plot synopsis has been hinting.

It's a very Hollywood plot.
