Godzilla and King Kong Could Meet in Future Monster Movie Mash

Both creature properties to be united under same distributor.

36 Comments

Two of cinema's most famous monsters may face each other in a forthcoming movie showdown.

No Caption Provided

Legendary Pictures, producers of the forthcoming King Kong reboot Skull Island, is in the process of moving their property from distributors Universal to Warner, who distributed Legendary's 2014 blockbuster Godzilla.

Deadline have reported that the deal is being made to bring both properties under the same roof, clearly signalling that a big screen King Kong/Godzilla face-off is being considered. Universal have no existing financial stake in Skull Island, and Deadline's sources state that the deal is to happen quickly.

Skull Island is scheduled for a March 2017 release, and stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, and John C. Reilly. Last month, it was announced that Jurassic World writer Derek Connolly is working on the script, which focuses upon a group of explorers who embark for an adventure on a mysterious tropical isle. The title obviously suggests that the legendary giant ape will make an appearance, along with a host of other monsters.

Gareth Edward's Godzilla was released in May 2014, and has made $529 million worldwide, with a sequel due in 2018. Although any subsequent monster showdown would be first time the pair have met in an American movie, they did previously feature in the the 1962 Japanese classic King Kong vs Godzilla.

Isn't King Kong about 25' tall and Godzilla is about 150' tall?

Not much of a match up unless King Kong is going to fight Godzilla Shadow of the Colossus style...

It'll probably be a 10 minutes fight near the end of the movie and the rest would be generic military guy running from place to place spotting a few inches of each monter.

King Kong is a giant gorilla, Godzilla is a armor plated lizard roughly the same size who shoots laser from its mouth.

lol Godzilla can stand miles above the Empire State building and King Kong has to actually climb the damn building to reach the top. It's a stupid mashup.

They shouldn't be enemies, rather they band together to fight against a common enemy, Ghidorah, Rodan, etc.

Hell throw Mothra in for good measure, make it an epic 3 vs 5-6 villains, tons of action and get some top of the line studio to do great effects works for the movie.

I'm just amazed that the last Godzilla movie they don't seem to understand what people want out of a Godzilla/Kaiju film, they want to see the giant monsters fighting each other, they don't want to spend an hour building up some "Backstory" with pointless human characters.

Think of Mad Max: Fury Road, THAT is the kind of balls to the wall action we need in a big feature kaiju film.

A King Kong that's comparable in size to 2014 Godzilla would be an absolute absurdity.

Maybe Godzilla has a kid that's 95% smaller for Kong to fight

How about you make a Godzilla vs Ultraman mash-up movie. The closes thing we ever got a Godzilla vs Ultraman was a Godzilla rip-off monster from Ultraman t.v series.

Big G is too op (the damn bastard survived a black hole lol). Unless they drastically increase kong size, i don't see an actual fight happening. And even if they did that, "Atomic breath" pretty much ensure kong is fcked.

Oh ffs not this noise again, Godzilla is king of monsters, Period.

King Kong is about the equivalent size of a jack russell terrier in comparison to Godzilla.

Lets not even get started on the fact that Godzilla shoots radiation beams outta his damn mouth!

@redeemer6666: Maybe they'll work together. Godzilla can be the warrior, and because King Kong is so much smaller he can be the sneaky rogue.

@oKiRe: Lol and that's just Zilla, Godzilla is leagues bigger and shoots radiation!

See this size comparison, King Kong is about the size of a T-Rex XD

King Kong has NO chance against something that thinks a Blue Whale is a "Light Snack".
