Godzilla vs. Kong is all set to take the Monsterverse ahead after Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island. Production Weekly has revealed that the upcoming matchup features a working title of Apex.
There is a good news for the fans, and that is that they do not have to wait very long as Godzilla: King of the Monsters will hit theaters in 2019. This movie will be introducing King Ghidorah and Mothra to the universe, and these were teased in the post-credits scenes of Kong: Skull Island.
King of the Monsters’ O’Shea Jackson had also teased what is to come in the movie including a monster ending which the fans will not forget anytime soon.
“Well as a Godzilla fan I know that I was shocked to find out that the second movie has King Ghidorah,” Jackson had said.
“Like King Ghidorah is the Godzilla bad guy. Like a three-headed golden dragon that shoots lightning is going to be in the movie that I’m in? Spazzing. And we got Mothra, we got Rodan, and we got King Ghidorah all in the same film. In the last scene, between Godzilla and King Ghidorah, I promise you, you will never forget in your life, and as a nerd, I am foaming at the mouth to get in like the editing room or something. No one’s answering my calls! Mike Dougherty where are you? Godzilla will be the number one movie dude, it’s a home run that I’m waiting for.”
We are yet to see how the other creatures are set to be worked into Godzilla vs. Kong and the fans will surely be happy to know that while this movie will feature Adam Wingard as the new director, it will also feature a few same sensibilities that Skull Island director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts had established.
“Talking to Adam made me so happy because he, in particular, really understands the kind of anime, manga, mech sensibility that I was trying to bring to Kong,” Roberts had said.
“He gets that, and that was something that I fought so hard for and was so difficult to sort of realize to life through concept to execution with ILM [Industrial Light and Magic.] That’s one of the things I’m most proud of with him. I think he truly gets that and he truly wants to lean into this version of Kong that kind of was born from my crazy and stupid video game brain.”
Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters on March 22, 2019, while Godzilla vs. Kong is slated for May 29, 2020.
