Godzilla vs. King Kong is a thing that Legendary may really do in a few years.
I will explode if this really happens. I am so excited by this that doesn’t even matter that I didn’t care for Legendary’s 2014 Godzilla.
According to Deadline.com, the unnamed Skull Island movie by Thomas Tull has just moved followed Legendary from Warner Bros over to Universal. Universal Studios is the current home of Legendary, which left Warner Bros. about two years ago. Having everything back under one roof makes it much simpler to start building a full kaiju cinematic universe.
When we were little kids, my sister and I used to argue over who would win, Godzilla or King Kong. We were 7 and 8, so violence to defend the honor our chosen monster was totally appropriate. Godzilla would win. Godzilla will win.
This is all speculation, of course. While the Skull Island film is definitely moving to Universal, there has been no official announcement yet from Legendary about a crossover film. Until that happens, it’s just wishful thinking. Giant, destructive, building-smash wishful thinking.
