Honestly, I wouldn't be opposed to making him look even more like the 1933 design. Maybe they could take some design cues from the Joe DeVito Kong? Bigger eyebrows, a more elongated cranium, wilder eyes, longer and kinda square-ish teeth, etc.

Given they homaged the 1954 Godzilla design's dorsal fins (and roar, in one scene) King of the Monsters, I'd love to see Kong's 2020 design homage the 1933 version.

I'd like Godzilla to a little leaner and snout slightly longer. Head ratio a little bigger.

One thing I really hope they do is not enlarge the head much. He’s an adolescent in K:SI and a primate to boot; his head should be pretty much the same size as an adult.

I know this is a design thread, but it would be nice if Kong's roar was updated. Like give him a more unique one similar to his Showa or '76 counterparts, or maybe even throw them in for a scene if they can.

His roar could be a little more impressive.

And it’d be nice if he got a new Bear McCreary theme.

And I LOVE the idea of using the Devito 33 artwork as inspiration!

Yeah that's where KSI fumbled and Godzilla2014 shined, they gave Godzilla and the Mutos pretty cool roars while Kong's seemed a bit forgettable. I remember the Skullcralwer's better than Kong's.

I do feel like Kong’s roar should a lot meatier and primal. KSI just felt too... Airy, I guess? A little too processed.

Have him be notably more bulky but athletic looking at the same time(If that makes any sense), and make his fur notably thicker.

All around make him look like something that would be able to give Godzilla a good fight at a similar size.

Definitely not in favor of mullet (the very word evokes images of Billy Ray Cyrus and Joe Dirt) but a mane would be nice, like the one in this fan design (though I definitely doubt we’ll get one). It adds something to Kong; at once it makes him more primal and bestial but also more regal, like a lion. Less of a “mere ape” and more of some sort of beast-god.

That being said I do like the “beard” it looks like they’re giving him for GvK.

Unrelated but electrical manipulation.

I want Kong v Godzilla To Be like BvS but...y'know, better critically received. With Mothra filling the role of Wonder Woman and Ghidorah filling the role of Doomsday. Here's to hoping. :D

Calling It Now, GvKK, King Kong won't be an inch under 250 ft.

I think this is a good size for King Kong.

Originally I was fine with that cause he had it in the past but now I rather he just be a badass normal in that other than being a giant monster, he's normal which would make any fights won even more impressive. I know people keep saying "how is King Kong supposed to be a challenge to Godzilla?", well other than King Ghidorah's gravity beams and Muto Prime's scream, none of the monster in the Monsterverse have used any special power to hurt Godzilla. Sure the MUTO's EMP was supposed to effect him but that got removed in the finished product. So pretty much outside of King Ghidorah and Muto Prime, everything has been fighting him tooth and claw and in the cases of Shinomura, Mutos and Muto Prime, he got hurt and even almost lost. At this point I think a pack of Skullcrawlers could give him a hard time.

He's not weak by an stretch of the imagination but he's not as powerful as fan fics make him out to be. Plus I doubt Godzilla gonna be pulling off the secondary powers we saw at the end of KOTM or Godzilla: Aftershock.

The ‘76 Kong one is my favorite Kong roar.
