|“||Kong's a pretty good king. Keeps to himself, mostly. This is his home, we're just guests. But you don't go into someone's house and start dropping bombs, unless you're picking a fight.||„|
— Lt. Hank Marlow (Kong: Skull Island)
A one-time WWII fighter pilot who crash-landed on Skull Island, Marlow has spent the last 28 years as a castaway in this strange land, surviving with the help of the indigenous Iwi tribe. Though wildly eccentric, the knowledge of its terrain and inhabitants becomes critical to the team’s survival.
