That GvK ends up as another underwhelming entry filled with missed potential.

Really? I didn't think K:SI or KOTM was underwhelming at all, but to each their own I guess.

Trust me.

Godzilla vs Kong: Kong won't die. He might win, he might lose, but he will survive.

This. I don't want the Godzillaverse to end with GvK, but considering how things are looking that way, Legendary might as well do this. Have MG kill off many of the titans, trash Kong's home, and let Godzilla and Kong destroy it and once and for all to permanently restore balance.

Just don't kill Godzilla. I have this horrible feeling they are in fact going to just that... I hope to God they don't.

I fear since to the GA they're the heroes to them that they'll copy Batman vs. Superman and Civil War with a team up rather then the movie being about their fight since the latter might otherwise not have the movie do as well. Because apparently GA is too used to old concepts being used rather then something new, original and unique.

And I fear the whole One Will Fall is some heroic sacrifice.

Nah,the aren't gonna die...or at least not yet anyway. If the MonsterVerse continues i can see it happening but it feels way to soon for the "hero sacrifices himself" trope to be used.

King Ghidorah's severed head will be shoehorned into the movie in some way instead of building him up for a Monsterverse phase ending payoff. (Also it will permanently kill off KG instead of keeping him around for the "Final Boss" role I really want for him)

Neither of them don't even have to die anyways. Just still have the movie about their fight and with a clear winner.

Still I'm dreading this for the reasons I stated what the GA would rather that's already been done before copy-pasting those two movies I mentioned.

These two are my main issues. I'm concerned that they have done far more than they needed to with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and much of the same will be done with Godzilla vs. Kong. I feel like they used up all the momentum the MonsterVerse had in just one film. Using big names like Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah, but failing to do so effectively. The references begin to feel truly stale with subsequent viewings, leaving a very rapid paced movie with too much going on.

Godzilla vs. Kong will need to stand on its own as a sequel to 2014's Godzilla and 2017's Kong: Skull Island, keeping things tame and relatively grounded in order to keep itself away from the identity of this previous entry. They're using everything too fast for their own good. Some would argue that it's best to do what you can with the property before contracts expire, or sequels don't perform well in the box office, but less is more sometimes. I feel that this is a case of that. Sequels cannot perform if they are not competent. Cheesy action blockbusters are not the way to go for the future of the franchise. Using the Ghidorah head again so soon is probably the least appealing idea, but yet likely Legendary's plan.

G14 - Disaster Film
K:SI - Adventure film
KOTM - Big Action Blockbuster

Seems like a solid variation to me so far tbh.

Yeah, i'm with you there.

Although, I don't mind if Godzilla is "defeated" and not killed. Taking him down a peg and removing his army of monsters raises the stakes for future movies.
Come fourth, Ghidorah! Great Golden Winged Destroyer; deliver onto us a beautiful demise!

My concern is that it won’t be a good film. Wingard’s track record is less than stellar, and Rossio hasn’t written a good screenplay since Treasure Planet. I have this concern in the pit of my stomach that this is going to feel like a big-budget SciFi Channel Original Movie. I really hope I’m wrong.

I honestly hope that Rossio looks at his past Godzilla work (the lost 94 script) and takes cues for this movie. You simply just can't mess up when your writing a film with two of the biggest stars in history.

I don’t think he meant “can’t” as in “it’s impossible to mess it up” but rather as “you can’t afford to mess it up.”

I know, just felt like reminding everyone what's at stake if they do.

Nah, FvJ is a cult classic.

It did what it set out to do.
