Godzilla vs. Kong is the latest entry in the MonsterVerse movie series featuring Godzilla and King Kong. Here is the complete timeline, outlining the events from all four movies: Godzilla (2014), Kong: Skull Island (2017), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and Godzilla vs. Kong (2021).
2014’s Godzilla was the second Godzilla movie fully produced by a Hollywood studio. The first was the 1998 Godzilla that “re-imaged” the character as a small, iguana-like creature that ran scared from the military. Toho, the Japanese studio that created Godzilla, weren’t fans and named this character “zilla” saying there was nothing god-like about him. And in the 1998 Final Wars movie, they killed him.
Sixteen years later director Gareth Edwards rebooted the American Godzilla franchise with a much more god-like King of Monsters. This has led to a MonsterVerse trilogy, featuring Godzilla and King Kong. Here’s the MonsterVerse Timeline Explained.
