I think KOTM shouldn't have changed release date either.

Agreed. It wasn't perfect but being two weeks removed from Captain Marvel was much better than being right on the heels of Endgame. I think Legendary got a little to big for their britches when they felt they had a summer blockbuster on their hands with KOTM. That, or less likely, they were prioritizing; sending it out to die in order to save their precious DC movie (Shazam) by keeping it away from Endagame giving it Godzilla's old release date.



If anything else, we really should have got KOTM in place of K:SI. Otherwise, we wouldn't be in the position we're in right now.

While I personally agree with this, do we really want GvK to wind up underperforming like KOTM did, in large part due to such a big budget?

$170M to $185M, since that's what Legendary/WB approved for K:SI and KOTM. Since all three were announced and greenlit at the same time, they probably gave them all the same budget.

Well 180m ish is still good enough, as long as they keep away from the quick cuts and uninterrupted fight scenes as much as possible we should be good.

I imagine that it might be a little lower, considering that they don't have to make new models for Godzilla, Rodan, and the other new titans.

So here's another interesting theory from TheCyberNerds KOTM review video,

Godzilla has his Titans that saw him whoop Ghidorah in one area right? We saw about 6 of them.

Kong undoubtedly has to have Titans that believe he's King on Skull Island. We know there's 11 other Titans and counting that we've yet to see.

So what if Godzilla continues his Showa edge, and kinda tells Rodan and some other Titan to go scout out Skull Island or see what's up over there? Which is why at the end of KOTM the paper says "Titans headed for Skull Island", or better yet, what if the article is about the Titans we haven't seen yet headed to Skull Island since they believe Kong is King?

It'd lead to an intense power struggle, kinda continuing that ancient King idea with 2 Empires/Kingdoms duking it out, we also saw the idea of Titans following individual leaders in KOTM with Rodan/Ghidorah vs Godzilla/Mothra. Plus it'd be way different from any kaiju movie ever released, and would differentiate it from KKvG

The tagline for GvK is "One. Will. Fall."

Like I said in the other thread, just some food for thought, I know some aren't a fan of anything beyond just Godzilla and Kong, but considering their current circumstances, it's possible.

I suggested this a couple months back. Godzilla and his crew vs Kong and his crew. It raises the stakes from KOTM while keeping Kong and Godzilla the main focus.

Yeah, uh I'm pretty sure this movie is going to get its asshole torn inside out if they do anything but Godzilla fighting Kong. No Rodan, no Ghidorah, no giant skullcrawler, etc etc etc. Seriously what's the problem with just that? There's no reason or truly logical way to go any bigger than what happened in KotM: everybody keeps living by this ridiculous philosophy that "ehhh every new movie HAS to be bigger and bolder and more batshit crazy than the last one or else it's going to bomb", which is complete nonsense.

Case-in-point, Logan is a farrrrr better movie than pretty much every other Fox superhero movie, despite the fact that it was the most contained (actually, it's the only one I truly enjoy). Same with Winter Soldier, Civil War, and the first Iron Man. KotM gave us something huge, now how about we just see Godzilla fighting Kong? I know pretty much everybody here hates me now for a multitude of reasons but I'm just speaking the truth: most of your ridiculous wet dreams will never make a better movie than just Godzilla fighting Kong. This is like if Civil War decided to introduce Doctor Doom or something.

And all of these ideas about some uber-powerful planet-destroying Hedorah, Destoroyah, SpaceGodzilla, or planet-sized Biollante make me cringe. There is no reason or real solid way to go any larger than King skreeonking Ghidorah whose presence alone made for a better apocalypse movie than the entirety of Roland Emmerich's 2012 (which is one of the worst sci-fi movies I've ever watched, but it just came to mind as an example).

Not including Rodan or any of the KotM Titans would be kind of bizarre, and hard to justify given how they're depicted as protecting whoever the Alpha kaiju is.

Skull Island at very least will have some monsters to kill early on if any percentage of the movie takes place there.

but Godzilla and Kong lone would just be boring. And like Ivo said, there's no reason for Rodan and the other titans to NOT be in the film. it doesn't have to be a team up story, but it just makes sense to have both lead an army of their own at each other at this point. Really the only way your idea could work is if they retcon the entire verse and say the other monsters are hibernating again.

as for why people hate you... i mean you bring up good points but it's your attitude drives everyone away. that and the fact you claim what your saying is the "truth". there's no truth to what your saying, the audience could certainly enjoy more monsters in this film

Put me firmly in the camp of those who want this to be Godzilla vs Kong and not The Avengers/Civil War but with monsters.

the other Titans should definitely be there, but not the focus. we all know that Goji and Kong aren't gonna kill each other, so I think showing the titans at the beginning during setup and end during the finale with the inevitable new monster would be best, with the middle of the movie focused on Godzilla and Kong

In the G:KOTM novelization, Ishiro has a son named Ren. In GvK, Shun Oguri plays an unknown character. Shun has a resemblance to Ken Watanabe. Is Shun's character Ren Serizawa?

Oh well. Guess I won't see the movie for myself and form my own opinion, I've basically already seen it in my mind from what I've read online and I know a lame duck when I see one. Time to whip out the 'ol 12 gauge

I like how he literally just gets mentioned in one line in the novelization

But yeah that sounds about right. The Monarch Sciences profile for Serizawa made a big deal about how he kept his personal life a close secret so they’re probably going to make that a plot point in GvK

I have an image in my head of Kong and Godzilla on Skull Island duking it out with all the other monsters standing in a circle watching the action unfold.

Kind of like a Beyond Thunderdome feel...but with monsters.
