Godzilla vs. Kong is an upcoming 2020 American science fiction monster film produced by Legendary Pictures, and the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse. It will be released to American theaters on May 22, 2020.[2]

Description

"The Gigantic Kong meets the unstoppable Godzilla. The world watches to see which one becomes the king of all monsters."[3]

Development

On October 14, 2015, it was officially announced that Legendary Pictures would be remaking King Kong vs. Godzilla.[4] The project had been rumored ever since Legendary acquired the rights to King Kong and announced Kong: Skull Island in 2014, and the rumors had become even more prominent after the project was moved from Universal Pictures to Warner Bros. On September 10, 2015, Legendary announced its plans to create a shared cinematic universe featuring both Godzilla and King Kong, as well as other giant monsters including Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Legendary's Godzilla was the first entry in this universe, followed by Kong: Skull Island in 2017 and Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, culminating in Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.

On May 10, 2016, The Wrap reported that Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong had been given new release dates of March 22, 2019 and May 29, 2020, respectively.[5]

On March 10, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that Legendary would be assembling a writers room to come up with the story for the film, comprised of Terry Rossio (who previously worked on the original version of TriStar's Godzilla film), Patrick McKay, J.D. Payne, Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin, and J. Michael Straczynski.[6]

On May 3, Warner Bros. announced that it had moved the release date for Godzilla vs. Kong up a week from May 29, 2020 to May 22.[2] Adam Wingard finalized a deal to become the film's director on May 30.[7]

In an interview with ScreenCrush on August 18, Wingard described Godzilla vs. Kong as a "massive monster brawl movie." He said the film would contain "lots of monsters going crazy on each other" but also stated "at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it."[8]

On June 1, That Hashtag Show revealed that Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison had been cast in the film in a supporting role, while Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler would both be reprising their roles from Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The article also reported that Legendary had offered Frances McDormand a starring role in the film.[3] The following day, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the previous report and also reported that Zhang Ziyi would be reprising her role from Godzilla: King of the Monsters as well, and that Van Marten would be joining the film's cast.[9]

Production

Principal photography on Godzilla vs. Kong is expected to begin in October 2018 in Atlanta, and conclude in February 2019.[10] It will film under the title Apex.

Trivia

Who do you think would win if they fought? Godzilla or Kong?

Well as it stands Godzilla is over three times Kong's height and Kong isn't even fully grown. Plus he has atomic breath and weighs hundreds of times more. Kong will need to mature and gain some spectacular abilities before he can hope to take on Godzilla one-on-one.

Ask yourself this: Who would win between Doctor Strange and Wolverine? That’s basically GvK in a nutshell (yes, I know they’re different characters, but it makes sense).

Also, consider the amount of radiation poisoning Kong would have to endure, since Big G is basically the Chernobyl Meltdown with legs. It doesn’t really matter about Adam Wingard’s description about the movie featuring a, “Rugged, a bit more aged Kong”, implying that Kong will be big enough to fight G. Sure, Kong is a thinking animal, but realistically speaking, consider the unhealthy amount of radiation he will absorb.

People have been making stupid theories about Destoroyah or Bagan appearing. I just hope that its a new monster by Legendary, or at least an old monster like Gigan or something. Besides, there's gonna be a few more monsters appearing

Well Mike Dougherty did tease the Oxygen Destroyer and according from Mike himself its part of the key plot and not just an Easter egg, but the movie is called Godzilla Vs Kong so I hope this doesn't turn out like Batman V Superman where they team up to fight a bigger foe. If another monster does appear then I hope it can be a 1v1v1 fight every monster for themselves

A new monster would be really cool, depending on how they make it. Since they did pretty well with the MUTOs and the Skull Crawlers I expect a deadly powerful monster. I wouldn't be surprised if it went like Batman V Superman because if one died it would really upset the fans of that monster. But there will most likely be a 1v1 I hoping Godzilla will come out on top

Already lots of people hoping "that monster [Wingard] doesn't direct" this movie b/c of Netflix Death Note. :P

To be honest it isnt the director's fault, the screenwriters make the script and the director uses the script besides live action anime films never did so well in the first place. Also they are hiring directors that love and respect the Godzilla series, the reason 98 didn't do so well is because Roland saw all the films during that time and thought that they were trash. But to be honest the screenwriters make the story the directors use to direct the story

I mean, it was pretty obvious this was going to happen. There is no way that Godzilla was going to kill Kong in a 1v1 or anything.

To be fair, there's always gonna be somebody who gets mad. If Kong wins, people will start saying things like "Godzilla can't be beaten by a giant monkey" and if Godzilla wins, people will say "Kong would never have stood a chance".

I just want to see Kong fight Godzilla without any other monsters interfering like the original. Also what monster would they fight? Can't be King Ghidorah if he dies in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (unless films are back to back and he escapes). Kongzilla would be to out of place, and more skullcralwers and Muto's wouldn't make sense either unless they use the hollow earth concept mentioned in KSI.

I hope there's more Godzilla films after this, but again 2020 is very far from our current date and year (and maybe more films might be announced in 2017, 2018, or even 2019).

Well Toho will make many more, and there are non-Godzilla kaiju films, but I think the Legendary series will be a trilogy. I hope not, though. So many monsters need a Legendary incarnation!

At least they're able to bought the rights for both King Kong and Godzilla, as Toho tried to borrow King Kong twenty years ago and they failed because it was "too expensive".
