(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.

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.
No offense to SAYAKA, but I'll remain skeptical of their claims (and all other claims to any insider knowledge of GvK) for the time being.
The end credits of KOTM very much hint that the plot of GvK is going to revolve around the human characters exploring the Hollow Earth under Skull Island, with it being not so much "Kong and Godzilla battle over who is King" and more "Kong versus everyone invading his Kingdom". There's also no indication of a "Titan Killer" conspiracy, at least from the villains of KOTM - if anything what Jonah and his followers want is set the Titans wild again.
What I could see instead may be a continuation of the subplot from KOTM where the world's governments and militaries wanting to exterminate the Titans to eliminate the threat, although if that's the case there really wasn't any indication of that in KOTM as they seemed to decide it was better to co-exist peacefully.

Would you care to elaborate
Yeah, as Godzilla2000zero said: in the ending credits epilogue for KOTM it's explained that all the Titans have started migrated to or toward Skull Island...EXCEPT for Rodan. Rodan instead heads to Fiji and builds a new nest in a volcano there. As I said earlier, maybe I'm way off base but the fact they singled out Rodan as the only one not going to Skull Island makes me strongly suspect it means Rodan doesn't play a significant role in GvK. I think it's a preemptive answer for everyone asking "Where's Rodan?" while everything is going down in the next movie.

Hollow Earth is an old theory, from before we discovered Plate Tectonics, that there was a whole separate world underground. It used to be a popular subject for Sci-Fi and Fantasy stories, as people would speculate there were dinosaurs, lost civilizations, and weird creatures living in this underground world. The most famous examples are Journey to the Center of the Earth and At the Earth's Core.
In the Toho films, that's where the undersea civilizations like Seatopia and Mu come in: they exist in these underground undersea caverns, and that's why they were cut off from the rest of the world. K:SI brought up the idea, but KOTM goes even further with the sunken city (which, my friends and I speculate, may have been intended to actually be Atlantis considering the location).
If GvK really IS going to center around an adventure in the Hollow Earth, we could potentially get some really cool and wacky stuff, way outside the "realism" idea people were pushing with G'14.
